Carnevale is one of the many, (21 to be exact) f&b outlets in Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The restaurant breathes classical European style and offers all the charm and a warm sociability you might find in a bustling Milanese Tratorria or Roman café.  A genuine passion for authentic Italian cuisine is apparent from your very first step into Carnevale. The restaurant... More

Lobster ravioli with a shellfish bisque And my wife had langoustine risotto. Both mains were delicious. Desserts were créme brûlee with espresso ice cream and chocolate lava cake with pistachio and strawberry sauce. Great food with lovely staff (because I stormed through my main they went and got me another ravioli). Highly recommended

Had dinner at Carnevale with friends, 8 of us in total. Service initially was shocking. A server repeatedly walked past us and refused to make eye contact, despite us clearly asking for attention. Eventually we were served. Waiter wouldn't give us our wine of choice because there was only one bottle left 😬starters were poor, and main courses very very... More

Great sea bass from the menu and creme caramel with coffee ice cream was pretty good too. Your half board evening meal voucher can be used for a three course meal including a wonderful bread basket,

I'm rather surprised at the other reviews -- I found the food to be overpriced and average at best. There are many (many!!!) other better restaurants in Dubai to spend this kind of cash at. If on property, have a drink at 360 and find another place for dinner.

Tried this at the recommendation of the hotel. Service was polite and food was nice. The kids menu lacked pizza which disappointed my kids - but at least one of the waiters said they could also do a couple of other dishes for them. Overall the food was average and not enough to make me want to go back

This sticks in my mind as one of my favourite meals ever. Been to Dubai 3 times and visited here each time (one holiday we went here twice just to try different meals). Lovely service, great food.
