We recently sampled Gary Rhodes in Dubai, an experience we will never forget. Callima has an amazing view but the rush to serve food and constant topping up your glass every time you took a sip was annoying. The food outstanding, staff are too attentive,...More

Food = 2* Michelin, well deserved and unique Staff & Service= 0* rubbish and rude, unprofessional. It's a big shame a restaurant such as Calima would have a terrible/slow/impolite service and staff. But the tasting menu is a piece of Art. Well done Chef!
