3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We were 5 guys and were denied entry first but the door manager was nice enough to allow us entry after some persuasion. The ground floor is a restaurant with decent food options but a bit over expensive. The first floor had a bar with mostly 40 plus people. Great interiors but not so lively!

What a great experience! Came for dinner with my mom on out last night in Dubai and it was an unbelievable experience. From the second we walked in the door we were treated amazingly. The service was great and our grilled lamb chops were delicious! After dinner we had a drink in the lounge and that was a nice experience... More

We went to celebrate my mother's birthday. The service was impeccable and the entire design of the restaurant was purely overwhelming. The food was brilliant and the cocktails as well. Both the food and the drinks were primarily suggested by the staff. Anything and everything was pricey, but indulging in this maybe once in a lifetime experience is worth every... More

We ate here whilst staying at the Grosvenor House and it was second to none. The place was very popular for sure, great night if somewhat expensive!

Buddha Bar is one of the best experiences I had in the last 10 years. The location, service, the food, the drinks, just perfect. It's not cheap but worth every penny. We will go back as soon as possible!

I don't actually know what it's like inside the restaurant. When I walked in to the lobby I immediately felt uncomfortable. The hostess was not very welcoming and kept me standing there for to long without a smile or any sense I was welcome. It was one of those places that make you feel like it's a privilege to walk...

I have been here on many occasions, romantic dinners, business dinners and a with a group of friends. It is great for all of those,can be romantic, impressive and great for business dinners/meetings and fun for a group. The service is good and the food is on point always. Try the signature chicken salad always a winner.

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.
