The atmosphere outside is nice, the waiters never cleared dirty ashtrays away while eating and the food was just okay. The lobster tail was good but the chicken and steak and scallops were bland and tasted the same. Probably my fault for eating meat at a seafood place but no excuse for bland tasteless food. Well priced though.

Great restaurant! Try to get a table on the section that is out over the water. From here you get great views of the light show on the Burj Khalifa in the evening. The food was quite good and reasonably priced. And the service was very good considering the number of guests and distance from the kitchen & main restaurant... More

Was our first time dining here although I'm not a massive seafood fan. They still have a decent selection of everything and the seafood did look tempting. We turned up by chance and were told it would be a 40 minute wait which is expected being Dubai Mall on a Friday evening. After 15 minutes we were given a call... More

We had a very nice dinner on the outside dock. The view aloowed a great view of Burj Kalifa light show and we were also able to see the tops of the fountain show. We didn't trust the steak since we are spoiled with steak from Texas. The seafood was all good.

The menu seemed interesting and the thought of Lobster was appealing. We were disappointed with our meals, the lobster salad had a 'fine dusting' of lobster and was drenched in dressing. Hints: 1. ask for a table with a view, we were placed in a corner near stairs. 2. Ask for the dressing on the side.

- Nice Food - Staff nice but pushy at end when came to closing - Outdoor seats have a great view - Can be nice and romantic outside in front of fountains and Burj Khalifa - Mid range pricing

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.
