My wife and I visited during our holiday to dubai. The food was of an excellent quality and the staff were superb too. We are made to feel very welcome and they did everything they could to make our stay an enjoyable one. Top marks to the manager, our waitress and the chef! We will be back!

We've been here several times: first two times we had very good dinner experience, food was very good, fast service. However, last time was quite a disappointment. My husband's lamb was very good, but I ordered carbonara, which I did order here before, and it was an authentic carbonara the first two times. I actually came back here specially for... More

A very enjoyable experience, with great food, including appetizers, main and the chocolate dessert. Great service with great prices and relaxing ambience. Definitely worth a visit

The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant. All of the staff were very attentive and polite. The food was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. There is a fabulous selection on the menu, very difficult to decide however, decide we did, we both chose the steak and I have to say one of the tastiest we have had. As mentioned before,... More

I am always skeptic about hotel restaurants. A group of us were having a cocktail in the Sheraton Club and talked to the waitress about the restaurants that were close. She recommended Ciao highly. We agreed and defended for an 8pm reservation. The first, abet certainly important thing that we noticed, was they were ready for us and actually eager... More

I've been surprised by the service of Daryl and is the friendliest ( though he is the only waiter i saw working in the restaurant aside from his manager). The food was two thumbs up! I will come back here again with my whole family.

The staff was very helpfull with food allergies. They served a delicious focaccia as a starter and even had a decent glutenfree bread! The mushroom soup was amazing. It's by far the best soup I've ever had. The tigerprawns had lot of flavour and is highly recommended. My mother and sister had risotto with mushrooms and aged beef. Both of... More

My husband and I are regulars to this hotel and very often visit Peacock upstairs which is one of the best Chinese restaurants in Dubai. We have been to ciao a couple of times and have been impressed throughout our visits. What makes this place is the service that is friendly and efficient without being overbearing. The food is lovely... More

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.
