Visited with friends on a Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed. Lovely setting, nice atmosphere with a piano player, not too busy. Food was perfect.

On a special birthday of one of our crowd, we were treated like royalty. The staff made our night one to remember. Pizzas were good, kids were happy, and so were the oldies. Drinks were ok. Thank you Frankies.

A real shame because I love Frankie's in Dubai. Each glass of wine we had was awful. Food didn't have any flavour. 2 starters, 1 salad, few wines each = AED 800+ Service was good and they were sweet to give us a birthday dessert, but we won't go back.

Disappointed by this restaurant. The only reason I was persuaded to go in was that they had live music, which I love. There was a guy singing and playing the piano, who was very good and most enjoyable. The restaurant was expensive and the quality of food very average.

We stay twice for dinner at this cozy place. It's quite expensive but the food was absolutely great and we enjoyed the friendly service staff. We had different soups (try the fresh seafood soup) and salads. The spaghetti Chittarra were delicious with the Wagyu beef and pizzas are handmade as well.

The day we have checked in at Fairmont's hotel we went for a plate of pastas at Frankies. I've had a vegetarian spaghetti which was delicious. It was all freshly cooked in a live cooking corner. The service was excellent. Although we've been dressed very casually, coming from the beach that wasn't a problem and the waiter was very helpful... More
