Great find in the marina area of Dubai. Fabulous authentic food situated overlooking the waterfront. Great service and staff . Expensive though-- like everything else in Dubai, but well worth a visit.

It was my first time to dine in at Reem Al Bawadi. Me, my sister and her friends loved the ambience, the food and the customer service. It was a great experience to dine in at this restaurant. Their staff are very accommodating, from the receptionists to the food servers. We ordered manakish, mixed meat, chicken liver, kebab and we... More

Been to this particular restaurant many a time, although the food is always satisfactory, the service always seems lacking (maybe because im not a 'local' there). My last visit was probably the worst of them all. The staff are very unbothered, rude and have to be prompted at least a couple of times before they act on your instructions. Though... More

Reem Al Bawadi has to rank with some of the best restaurants in Dubai. Our favourite is the establishment on Jumeira Beach Rd. The surroundings and food quality are first class. One word of warning, be careful how many dishes you order, as the portions are very generous. The waiters and the service is second to none, and their knowledge... More

A quite unique and very welcoming Lebanese / broad Arabic food restaurant with great decor and service. We had a weekend early dinner with our two boys (12 and 10) - all delicious warm mezzes (hummus and meats and then lamb kebab and baby stuffed roast chicken). Their fresh juices are also worth their steep price tag. We will return... More

I had a family dinner at Reem Al Bawadi with my friend there in August 2016. It was recommended by my local friend. We ordered Hummus, Mutabbel, Chicken grill, Shrimp grill, Hamur grill and off course Kawa. The ambience was exhilarating. The staff members are so friendly, they made us felt like we are having fun party at home. The... More

I frequent Reem with friends and family at least once a week and I absolutely love it! It's not the cheapest shisha cafe but the flavours are strong and last a long time making it worth every dirham! I highly recommend their classic grape-mint mix or lemon, orange, mint. The staff are always friendly and the atmosphere is warm, and... More

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighbourhood Profile
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
