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.

My wife and I sat outside to eat which was a very nice atmosphere with a great view. The service was great and it felt like the staff would go the extra mile to make sure you enjoyed your evening. There was an excellent choice of dishes and all food we ordered was presented well and tasted great. We where... More

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.

This restaurant is overpriced. The portions of food were very small. The bread for the starter was stale. The quality of the main meal was good but does not compare to Italian food provided around the world. The range of options for food on the menu is limited (no pizza). When providing feedback to the manager he gave us a... More

have eaten here numerous times, this was a complete let down, maybe because we had 11 in our party, but still I do not think that should matter, food came out incorrect, and missing dishes, deserts were very good
