I was in Dubai for a business trip and I've been on this restaurant 3 times. Food it's average, sometimes has been good, but the service it's really bad... extremely bad. Most of the waiters are not italian and I guess they are underpaid, that's why. The first time I was here we have been served by an italian waiter... More

The restaurant is in an excellent location, in the Souk Al Bahar overlooking the fountains. The terrace affords excellent views of the Burj Khalifa and the fountains. Very good menu with excellent range of dishes. Always a good meal here with great service.

First of all: Great location with perfect view of the fountains. The food was really good (a little expensive), and service was fine. I booked the table online, and told them that the occasion was that 2 people in our group was turning 60. After the dinner, they arrives with 2 cheesecakes and the waitors sang a birthday song.Which was... More

A good night out with the most awesome view of the burj khalifa and water fountains. I am always wary of the restaurant with a view because they don't need to try so hard with the cuisine. The meals were nice without being spectacular and so the view was the best memory of the night. Definitely worth a visit but... More

Even by Dubai standards this restaurant is seriously over-priced - expect to pay at least £50 (USD60) for a decent main course. Works out minimum £100 per head for 3 courses (excluding drinks). Food is ok and the views of the fountain are great (though you can just stand on the quayside and get a decent view for free!).

To enjoy the fountain, better you got to dine in this restaurant. great view from the restaurant and it offers delicious Italian dishes. Bit expensive. It is suggested to reserve your seats in advance to make sure you get fountain view seats.

An awesome view of the dazzling fountains, beautiful food, and excellent service made for a divine evening. The fountain dances back and forth mere meters away while you sup cocktails and devour lovely seafood. Do try the Bice Mare Aperitvo cocktail invented by the owner - it's very good. For two people with two rounds of drinks and two courses... More

We chose Bice Mare because it had the most attractive looking menu of any of the restaurants offering a ringside seat for the fountains display. On the basis of other reviews, I was prepared to be underwhelmed by the food and service. In fact, both were excellent. Our starters (veal-stuffed zucchini flower and manzo pepato) were well prepared; the pasta... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
