Neighborhood: Downtown Dubai
Description: Poised alongside one of the longest lap pools in Downtown Dubai, Cabana is a vibrant alfresco venue that features a terrace lounge for an uplifting experience of dining and leisure, with guests being able to enjoy the majesty of Burj Khalifa while lounging on inviting beds in private cabanas. By day or night, a selection of grilled delicacies and international fare ideally complement the uplifting ambience of Cabana. As the sun sets, celebrations under the starry night sky begin to the scintillating tunes of our resident DJ, while the experience is made all the more distinct with a selection of inventive hand-crafted beverages.

Have been using Cabana for 4 or 5 years now. An ideal change from the hustle and bustle of the Mall. We go at lunchtime and the restaurant is never too busy, service is excellent and there is a very good menu with plenty of dishes to choose from. I can definitely recommend the fish and chips! The location has good views of the Burj Khalifa.

Merry Christmas to all of you. We hope that you had a great time with your family, friends and loved ones and still enjoy a fantastic festive season. This year we celebrated our company Christmas party at the Cabana, on the 3rd floor of the Address Dubai Mall.


We booked the entire terrace, overlooking the infinity pool and Dubai on one side and the stunning Burj Khalifa on the other side. The view was breath taking and so was the entire evening. We were about 50 people and therefore the team of Cabana organised banquet tables for 10 guests each, spread out on the terrace, decorated nicely with white and grey table cloths, electric candles and Christmas crackers. Up on being welcomed at Cabana, Mr. Rabiha and his team made sure that we were spoiled though out the entire evening. Out of a conicidence, a live band was performing on the same night, which added great value to our celebration. The concept of the night at Cabana was “Brazilian Night”, which was not related to Christmas at all, but then without snow in December and the smell of freshly baked cookies and mulled wine, we were not in a Christmas mood anyways.

We saw the evening as a gathering for those who worked so hard during the last year and took Christmas as an occasion to celebrate. It was a fantastic evening with great food and super service. The starters were placed on a buffet and one was offered a collection of salads, cold cuts and Arabic delicates. The mains, beef tenderloin, chicken, lamb and fish, were served on the table, and sweets were placed on the buffet again, for everyone to help themselves.
The beverages served on that evening were white and red house wine, water and freshly squeezed juices. Faith, the Marrocian lady who impressed us the most, made sure that all guests were happy and was able to address all our requests on the spot. She really went the extra mile to ensure we had a memorable evening. One thing everyone working at Cabana had in common, besides offering first class service was their smile. One could tell that hosting a huge group of 50 guests was not exhausting for them (as one feels in many other places) but they enjoyed being busy, roaming around making sure everyone was happy and obvioulsy had fun chatting with guests.
A wonderful evening to sum it up in short. I highly recommend Cabana, not only for Christmas parties but also for a nice, romantic dinner with your other half or sun downer cocktails with friends.
A must visit in Dubai.

Thank you Faith and Rabiha for the great hospitality.
MERRY CHRISTMAS,
SEB

Went to Cabana for Christmas Day and really glad we did - had a table for two by the poolside and enjoyed a REALLY good Buffet Brunch and non-stop supply of decent white wine. Excellent seafood starters, several portions of the most amazing rib of beef + turkey, teriyaki salmon, lobster tails and all the trimmings. And Christmas Pudding to finish :-) The staff were excellent, Live DJ and poolside location made it a very relaxing atmosphere. It wasn't expensive @ 350 AED (£60) and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The poolside lounge, Cabana, offers a relaxed environment to unwind in the evening with drinks and quality food. The menu is a bit limited, but it is understandable as it is a "pool resto" and not a traditional restaurant. The Lobster Po-Boy Sandwich was flavorful, not over-fried, and comforting. The evening DJ's relaxing music added to the luxurious, yet unpretentious, mood to the area. Make sure to make it in time for happy hour, and don't forget your Entertainer vouchers!T
