They serve delicious Mexican food and the outside sitting option is too good. The ambiance transports you to a different country and you don't feel like you are in Dubai. Any Mexican dish you name it they have it and it a gastronomical delight. Highly...More

Normally we really enjoy this restaurant for North America's version of Mexican food. If you want to check this place out I would recommend the taco salad, burritos, the tortilla soup and even the complimentary chips & salsa are excellent. Refillable ice teas and the...More

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
