Unbelievable decor, outstanding ambience, service, food & drinks. It just keep on taking me back and back again. In love with the place. Special thanks to the team and Mr. Mehmood to always keep it top notched. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has an amazing atmosphere and a very low key funky cool vibe about it. The staff are attentive and the drinks were lovely. The food is nice but wasn’t a feast size wise. 😊 beautiful though! Visit if you can.

Beautiful decor , very hip and trendy spot. Food good, not great. But a great spot for a fun night. Wine prices in Dubai are outrageous, so look at the fun cocktail menu

Nice for dinner or drinks at the bar. Excellent for large groups as it is very spacious and has huge round tables.

Loved the food, really nice despite how busy it was with a large number of tables. Book in advance as it's always busy. Toilets are an experience on their own

Spent a night there in november. Great vibe and good service. Although the placed was packed we never felt unattended or waiting. Food quality is top and still has what it takes to hold its name next to all those new copies of places

This was my second time here. Food quality is still very good - had lobster dim-sum,sea bass and a mango based dessert- and so it is the wine list (first 20 mins was all about wine-chatting with the waiter..nice) Deco is still impressive. Everywhere. Including...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
