“Fantasic meal”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I live in Dubai and heard about this restaurant through some friends. It was a Saturday evening that we went and had a very good meal with great service and wine. Nothing was too much and the Spanish Chef came out to our table to check if we enjoyed our meal. That makes such a difference actually seeing the chef in person. We will return soon..

“excellent service, delicious tates, great ambiance”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

On calling Jumairah last Friday to book Pierchic, we were told that it was full and were recommended Villa Beach Restaurant instead. A quick checking on internet gave us a Time Out Dubai Review (2008!) which was quite negative and left us wondering if we'd made the right choice, but decided to give it chance.
And Wow! were we happy with the choice - waiter Milan, manager Santosh and chef Juan made our evening an expeptional one with a great reception, ambiance and really delicious tastes. We were away from the city on a quiet beach looking up at the Burj for a few hours!
Fish was fresh, steak was so tender it melted in the mouth and all the trimmings had their own unique flavours blending beautifully with the main dish. And of course the little amuse in between were great. We can recommend to anyone who wants a special evening. And price - well though its not cheap its fully in line with most fine dining in Dubai.

“An unforgettable experience”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This was the first time i was visiting Villa Beach restaurant. i had seen a lot of reviews and pictures and really wanted to try out. I booked the table for 2 on my fiance's birthday. reservations were made in advance and i had specifically asked for the scenic/outside seating. On arrival, i believe the place was a little crowded and all the seatings outside were occupied, nonetheless, the attendant, Mr Santosh was extremely apologetic and very courteous and assured that he would be seating us on another table once that is free. I at the beginning was extremely dissapointed as this could have been clarified while reserving as it is, none the less, the attendant was very apologizing, courteous and gave his best try to make our evening special. A special appreciation to both Mr Santosh and Mr Mohsin who both very extremely courteous.
The view was spectacular, excellent service was provided and a complimentary bday cake made the day very special. thought i belive the menu was very limited and the chicken paella was not really good. Chicken was literally bland.
Though i was very impressed with the in between each courses complimentary dishes. The sorbets (rasberry, pineapple and watermelon) and the Passion Fassion drink are to die for. Even the strawberry cheesecake with rasberry sorbet after the main course was an absolute delight.

“Definition of BAD!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Supposed to be fine dinning! Simply terrible.....how could a restaurant with such a prestigious location churn out food so bad. I do not give reviews for mediocrity or even not so good but this was really too much, I mean BAD!

Waiting staff were generally friendly and tried their best to keep spirits up, what they lacked in experience they made up in for in other ways - forgiveable, after all it is Jumerah. The food however was prepared by someone with no formal trading and no appreciation that dining in this environment is meant to be an experience at least to match the location. Quality of the seafood (defrosted), seasoning (none), flavour, all were lacking.

Good things - nicely turned vegetables (not sure why) and presentation not bad. Other than that awful.

Value for money - nil!
