Can't fault the array of shellfish and fresh fish. So much to choose from and a chef helps you choose what to have and then cooks it school ever way you want. The lobster bisque was sublime too.

Took 2.2 hours to have a meal. Waited 20 mins for menus and another hour + for food. There were no waiters. At the end, they made a mistake on the check and that took another 20 mins to remedy, i.e. "All managers are in a meeting." Nice atmosphere and decent food, but hire more people!

Been there many times with family. They serve 4 kinds of breakfast set menu during whole day and for 45 AED only!!! Great plan for those who wake up late and want to have breakfast at any time. To be honest what they serve is kind of a brunch. We spend at least 2 hours there and enjoy the place... More

Ive been 2 times here, 1 for breakfast which was amazing, and recently for some drinks in the evening. In both occasions the food was really good, specially the fried jalapeños as a snack!! We had sheesha outside, so it was a good ambience over there. I would like to thank also Dante, he was really attentive with the customers,... More

If you are looking for the worst service in Dubai, then come here. If you are looking for poorly seasoned, uncooked food then also come here. I was lured by the cheap breakfast of AED 45 and I finally know why it is so cheap! The service is simply terrible. The waiters didn't bring our drinks for over 25 minutes.... More

With a quick pit stop back in Dubai before jetting off to Tbilisi for a weekend of food and fun, there was just enough time to check out Plantation at Sofitel JBR’s new Art & Dine concept, an idea installed by the restaurant to turn what used to be a sterile space, into their interpretation of a mini art gallery....

We had heard from a friend that the Sofitel in JBR had a great breakfast promotion on the typical All day English breakfast (fry up) and it was available all day. We decided at the weekend to head down with the family and try it out. It was an all round good experience, the traffic was not too bad and... More

We were staying at the hotel and thought on our last night we would go for this restaurant rather then the Buffett included. On arrival the service was attentive and friendly, the female Waiting member of staff was attentive, couldn't catch her name but she was the only female on shift last night. However she then went to serve outside... More

Excellent value for money and staff are very friendly and helpful. Got into the restaurant and almost immediately seated. Had a 2 course breakfast, had to be the fry-up, from a choice of 3 breakfast's from the menu. Each course served in good time and the food was well presented and tasty. I would definitely recommend coming here and will... More

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.
