Frequently visit this restaurant for breakfast. The omelettes are great and the staff is wonderful. The view of the marina is very nice from here also. Very pleasant experience!

My husband and I visited Cafe Battle for the afternoon tea on a surprisingly rainy Saturday afternoon in DIFC. The restaurant itself is very nicely fitted, the staff greeted us and asked if we were joining them for afternoon tea. We decided to have the Classic afternoon tea, which arrived with fizzy date juice (not to our taste!) and an... More

Just around the corner from our hotel, this was a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a coffee and pastry. Much more economic than the our hotel. Beautifully clean and delightful attentive staff.............................................................................................

We ate at the Cafe Bateel, Dubai Marina, 4 times in the short stay at the marina. We were not disappointed, there was a varied menu which was well cooked and very well presented. The staff at all times were courteous, polite and efficient. In fact we enjoyed every meal we had there. To say the Bateel is a 'cafe'... More

I had the cheesecake. It was very good. My partner had the penne arbibiatta and really enjoyed the dish. It was moderately to expensively priced. Would visit here again.

Has a great view and atmosphere. The food is very good. The staff is friendly. They open from the early hours of morning which is good for an early breakfast on the marina.

Love the food and the setting perfect for business breakfast or lunch in DIFC. I tried their rocket salad, salmon avocado salad, Lavant breakfast, shakshouka, club sandwich, bresaola sandwich and a specialty chicken dish that I forgot the name of.

Recently refurbished and doubled in size this Bateel has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating areas. Nice terrace overlooking the marina - smoking and non-smoking areas. Menu, as other Bateels, is a mix of local and international dishes.

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
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 to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
