Been coming here since arriving in Dubai and never disappoints. The new Colombian band are great, food and drink selection good, but what makes it most is the friendliness and service of the staff. A special mention of appreciation must go to Fazil, who is always attentive and is the core reason we return as he always makes us feel... More

More of a Buffet style restaurant, good selection of food. Good value if on a budget... no comparison to the quality of Amaseena restaurant in the Ritz Carlton however the prices do reflect this. Breakfast is varied with good selection of pastries, fruit, hot foods, yogurts etc..

My headline says it all, went there for 4 breakfasts and by the second day all the staff recognised us, remembered our coffee/tea orders from the previous day and were all genuinely concerned fro service.

We ate here on our first evening in Dubai. We don't often go to a buffet but after a long day travelling we felt we needed a relax and good food. The price was approximately forty pounds each and we almost decided that was too much but wine, beer and spirits were unlimited. The white wine was very sweet but... More

We had a short stay in Dubai and we found this to be a delightful place to come and eat our breakfast. Our waiter Mohammad Fazil was particularly helpful sourcing me some gluten free bread. I have no hesitation in recommending this place.

I ate here justa bout every morning. It might be included in your hotel cost - ask for the front desk. A beautiful assortment of items - including pork if you're a pork lover. Waffle, omelet, cereal, juice/fruit bars just to name a few sections. Lovely table and greeting staff too.

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.
