The restaurant has a very good atmostphere and is good to visit when the weather is good to enjoy the outdoor seating. Every second saturday, they organise a special event with free Italian Aperitivo. Not very Vegetarian friendly but good if you're looking for a good vibe and a few glasses of wine.

This is my second visit to the restaurant, both times the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Both times I booked through online, and i do recommend that you double check how busy the restaurant is on the day of your visit. Get there early too, so you can get a nice seat outside. The food is an interesting mix... More

Bussola, located in the upper deck, has casual ambience. It serves one of the best pizzas in town and is ideal for watching sunset during the winter months.

Nice venue inside Westin. The restaurant is rather big and does not feel that cozy and intimate. However, we were there with a big group of friends which was perfect. The menu is good, but you can tell that pizza is the main focus. Classic Italian thin crust with a good variety of toppings. We had the prosciutto di Parma... More

This restaurant is a part of Westin Mina Seyahi hotel. Food is italian and very tasty. Prices are ok for Dubai. Service good. They have also a nice outside bar with grat sea view. A viariety of different drinks should be bigger, but all in all good experience.

Went there with a group of 5 colleagues. There is a fine dining ground floor and the more casual pizzeria on top of it. Nice night views of that side of the Palm with the Atlantis glowing in the distance. A good selection of pizzas with some pork choices as well. All priced under 100 AED. However, the hotel reception... 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.
