“nice place”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

it is one of the best places to have a meal in the city, very calm in afternoon but very crowdy at night and the smoky environment is not that good.

“the only hing good about it is the garden area!”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

the service is not as expected, it takes long time to meet the client request.
the prices is high comparing to the service, and food quality!
the only good thing is the garden area, and the musical band!!

“Wild West in Arbil”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

At first glance Marina looks like a large "Saloon" from an old Western movie. All in all it is a fun place to go with a group of friends. It's a huge hall that probably seats 500 hundred people. The food is fine but one doesn't go there so much for the food as for the atmosphere. If you go after 9:00p.m forget about the chance of having a conversation with your fellow dinners. The music is loud and at times ear piercing.

Marina is a good place to go once in a while to have a few drinks and watch all kinds of people enjoy themselves.

“Excellent Restaurant and Service”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

It's a huge size restaurant, typically made for Kurds with their extended families. No parking problems because of the separate, fenced parking lot. The welcome at the stairs as usual, professional and polite with guidance to the table. Though the place is a hall, the interior of the house with its illumination is reflecting a warm and familiar atmosphere. Its amazing how the service by an 'armada' of waiters is organised and managed, very swift and professional throughout. The menue is middle eastern, i.e. typically Iraqi with Kurdish specialities. The Masgouf (grilled fish or say, one of the Iraqi national dish) is marvelous and; these fishes are swimming in a pond just outside near the kitchen where you can make your choice, if you like. All toghether with the tasty fresh and warm unleavened bred and a glas of wine makes it a memorable evening.
