    Sitting on the balcony, watching the Dubai Fountain show was wonderful. Unfortunately, they also allow smoking, and crying children, on the patio, which sometimes takes away from the experience.

    For the price of everything it was disappointing. The appetizer and main course weren’t great. The dessert was very good though (the highlight). The menus were dirty and the service was great ie no plates with the bread bowls, long waits for wine refills (so we did our own), and no coordination between the servers. The view and location was very special though.

    i was ready to overprice. cause it was christmas eve, i am tourist. but even that, food quality is hard to accept. oyster - you can’t sell this lol octopus - not bad, but over cooked ravioli - it’s foodcourt food lol steak - they severed double thin meat not one thick meat. i made steak like this when i was 11 without mom dessert - supermarket quality lol even i ready, food price is totally overpriced lol server was so nice. i thx to their service. they make our happy christmas eve view - great. but seems like other restaurant same.

    Food is very good and the view to the fountain is indescribable However tables outside are super closer, trying to optimize the number of guests for the great view and it makes service quite complicated. In this scenario I think it’s quite overpriced

    We booked this restaurant because we love seafood and we wanted to watch the Burj Khalifa fountain show, it was an excellent place to view it. I was rather hot which I understand because of the time of year but there were only 3 fans, they were located on one row and more could easily be added. The food was absolutely incredible, the complimentary breads and the dips were amazing and something you would normally pay for! My wife asked to add shrimp to the fetacheni and they did not go small on that portion! I had the seabream and it was probably one of the best fish dishes I have had in my life! After we had desserts and I had the chocolate fondant dish which was amazing. It is also our wedding anniversary and your team recognized this on the booking and made sure to acknowledge it with a dessert plate. Overall we had an amazing dinner and I would highly recommend it again! I am pretty sure the server said his name was Chem but the receipt said Ahamed. I have included a photo of the receipt also so you know who it was. He was excellent and very attentive. I do however feel bad because I didn't check the receipt before paying and only realized after that no tip or service charge was included. I only hope that you can recognize his service in some other way.

    Excellent service! I requested a table with good views of the fountain show through email as I was on my honeymoon. Not only was I given a great table, but they went above and beyond and served a complementary dessert at the end which said ‘Happy Honeymoon’. Its gestures like these which make your day.

    great location to see the fountains and Burj Khalifa. The food is very good, but overpriced and the price of the wine is outrageous. I guess you pay a premium for location. I enjoy taking guests to this restaurant. they are always impressed. I had Turbot last night which tasted lovely, i know its an expensive fish but the portion was tiny!
