We had a great time at Buddha Bar and highly recommend it. Cocktail list was very good, the atmosphere with the DJ lively but still comfortable for a meal. Gluten free options all looked nice and food tasted amazing. Staff pleasant and happy

We had a really nice dinner here. Good food, amazing decor, really nice service. It's really, really expensive here (hey, it's Dubai), but they really deliver.

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was

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
