This is a arabic style seafood restaurant, choose your seafood from the display, and wait for it to be cooked fresh. Absolutely delicious food. Will come back again!

A regumar lebanese eater, always thought lebanese was veggie and meat intensive, but this place changed my perspective. You pick your own fresh fish from the ice display, and they cook it for you. Mix that with the best hummus (with roasted pi e nuts!) And muthabal (with fresh pommegranate!), and you have a food feast on a budget. Stay... More

Sammach is a typical example of what restaurants were like in good old, lazy Dubai, before the franchises took over. It’s a deliciously laid-back Lebanese seafood restaurant located on the ground floor of the aging Jumeirah Beach Center, itself an icon of yesteryear. Although it’s getting a little frayed around the edges, it looks like it was originally designed by... More

A hidden gem in Jumeirah road. I love the place for the fresh catch of the day and the different way you can enjoy you fish and sea food. Very good value for money restaurant!

We have been going there since 2005 and have never been disappointed until recently. We even preferred the Beach Centre branch over the Souk Al Bahar one even if the latter offers amazing views of the fountain. We used to go there mainly for the spicy potatoes, calamari, hummus and the deep fried lady's finger but during the last visit,... More

We were invited to dinner in this restaurant and we took the chance to meet some friends that live in Dubai to test this restaurant. It was a very good experience !! A high quality of fresh fish and appetizers with a courtesy and prompt service. I suggest this restaurant at all.

I used to love this place till my last visit. what is extremely annoying that when you go to choose fish and shrimps they just do it so fast that you can never see the weight. You need to have 3 eyes, one on the fish, one on the waiter's hand and one on the order book. You point to... More
