I've been here a few times with different groups, my last visit was for a casual last minute lunch and catch up. The terrace outside was empty even though it was Saturday. However the staff didn't seem to hit it off from the welcome to the service. Shame because this place has potential but service was totally missing. Food was... More

I love Rosso's! I have had dinner here many times. The lighting and music create a great ambience, unlike a lot of other venues in Dubai. Order the thin garlic bread with sprigs of herbs, the pasta arrabiata (they do gluten pasta and bread free too). Aim for evening happy when you can order cheap bottles of wine - hard... More

Another great night at Rosso. The quality and variety of food is always excellent but the best part of the experience is the customer service.

As a regular visitor to Rosso it is hard to find anything wrong with the place. The menu offers far more than the average Italian Restaurant and I would defy anyone to find a better Beef Fillet anywhere in Dubai. However what sets it apart from many restaurants is the sheer quality of the staff and management. My wife and... More

At my weekly happy hour spot at the sun deck bar with my drinking buddy Terry , And my favorite bartender Vicky . It's nice to come to a bar where the bartender knows your name , greets you and pours you a cold one right when you sit down . Nice place with a class act bartender.

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.
