We chose Bice Mare because it had the most attractive looking menu of any of the restaurants offering a ringside seat for the fountains display. On the basis of other reviews, I was prepared to be underwhelmed by the food and service. In fact, both were excellent. Our starters (veal-stuffed zucchini flower and manzo pepato) were well prepared; the pasta... More

Are here as we wanted to see the fountains and have an a la carte meal. Staff were inattentive. Food was very mixed. 2 good meals 2 poor ones. Waiter explained they were short-staffed so it was difficult to maintain service standards. Manager wanted a "heated debate" about why we were dissatisfied. Reluctantly gave a 20% discount and the bill... More

We reserved the table for 31st Dec and got the confirmation. That is good thing. We are excited to try the food and wonderful time for our New Year dinner here. Now we just receive the cancelation by restaurant itself without any reason. What kind of service is it? Totally frustrated to spend time for booking at this restaurant which... More

The restaurant (speaking about the terrace) is elegant but not too much, just in a traditional way, which is more than enough. Service was impeccable and all the waiters were kind and attentive without missing a single wanter/wine refill. The quality of food is excellent, no doubts about it, but still, some courses are just outpriced in my humble opinion.... More

Excellent food. Attentive service. Best view of the Dancing Fountains, Burj Khalifa.We were here for a group dinner and the experience was amazing; from the goat cheese salad to the eggplant parmigiana to the mushroom risotto to the mixed grill with some tender, tasty beef! The dessert choices are equally amazing from the custard cannelloni tother delightful tiramisu and others.

Seafood was fresh and the spiciness was just nice. The noodles were cooked to perfect timing not soggy at all.

I absolutely love italian cuisine, and I'm very critical of italian restaurants. But Bice Mare is outstanding! Love their home made pasta and fresh fish, italian way. With perfect setting near downtown fountains, italian attentive waiters, cannot wait to come back for more! It is pricey, but well worth it!

Book a table on the outside balcony for a perfect view of the famous dancing fountains. A warm reception followed by an excellent meal,particularly the seafood.A very fine dining experience,if a little expensive.But well worth it for a superb romantic evening.

This is a great place from where to watch the fabulous fountain display. We were on a terrace one floor up, so had an unobscured view. The food was high quality but small portions and very expensive. As the cheapest ingredient is the pasta, I expected at least a full plate, not half of one for the price.

Visited this restaurant some years ago and had an excellent experience. Unfortunately now it's really just part of a tourist attraction. Minimum charge very small portions and food quality no where near the prices charged. The prices of wine are beyond belief! I would never return or recommend.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
