This is a cool place to have a meal in Dubai. The prices are fairly reasonable and you get to look out on the amazing indoor ski-ing and penguins too if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time. Where else could you see this?

To our regret, we found this paradise on the last day of our vacation so we spent time of about 8 hours! I loved mini kebabs and their continuous serving nuts. They have happy hour which includes nice cocktails. It is also allowed to smoke inside. It was a relief in Dubai where we craved for a cold beer.

Had a late lunch and enjoyed the views of ski Dubai. Pizza and salad were good, ordered the cheese fondue which was quite tasty but overpriced, and most of the dipping items were bread cubes. A nice place for a drink or quick bite.

An old time favourite in the Mall of Emirates; good quality food with attentive service in a casual yet vibrant atmosphere. Good selection of drinks that belong on the traditional après ski you're used to when coming of the slopes.. Fantastic panoramic views of Ski Dubai make it a complete experience! Will be back! By the way, happy hour is... More

Always the best place to chill out after work. You will feel comfortable just sitting at the table and enjoy a glass of wine with friends. If I have to mention one missing point.... service will be a bit slow. You might have to keep looking at or to wave you hands at the servers in order to get the... More

The ambiance is great and the ski view is beautiful. The onion soup tastes good but should be thicker, the pizza was dry. Overall it was a good experience.

What a great outlet inside the mall! Great view of SKI Dubai. They have great deals and happy hour. They even have San Miguel which is hard to find in Dubai. Good place to unwind after shopping.

Sitting by the window with a glass of wine whiling away an afternoon! Great wines and good views! It seems there is a smoking pit in the middle but we just sat at the window so no problem. Didn't have food this time but last time was fine!

Dear Joanne, Glad you enjoyed your day viewing the kids ski. It is indeed a little gem of a location. With regards to your feedback on the smoking, we are working on sorting out the air system. Meanwhile we have non-smoking areas far away from the so called pit. We actually also have a TV available there where we play... More
