We all know that Dubai has it's mood for whether the servers are having a good day or a bad day - whatever day they are having, it determines how they will treat you. However, not in here! Been here countless times, and the service...More

I have been to this restaurant in the past, this was the best experience to date. Food was fantastic and the views amazing. We had pork ribs and eisbein. The eisbein was possibly the best in Dubai!

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
