Breakfast is buffet or a-la-carte. Mostly western fare but with some middle eastern dishes. Dinner is where this restaurant excels. A range of middle-eastern and north African dishes, with attentive staff. There is musical entertainment also.

I do not recommend this restaurant. The service is terribly lazy, plates pile up on the table, drinks are for never. The seafood buffet is with no taste, full of dishes looking good but very deceptive.More

began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
