Le BiCE Mare est remarquablement bien placé pour assister aux spectacles de fontaines du Burj Khalifa.
La cuisine est de qualité. Le poisson du jour du nous avons choisi était excellant.
Le prix est peut-être 10 à 15 % plus élevé. Mais c'est prix pour avoir La meilleure vue sur le Fontain Show Dubaï.

Abbiamo cenato in terrazza che guarda sulle DUBAI fountains: atmosfera molto bella, io ho preso un polpo di antipasto ma non era un granché , coperto di pan grattato, poco gusto e secco. La calamitata invece buonissima. Bevuto 1 bicchiere di vino e acqua. Speso 153€

We were traveling through Dubai and wanted a nice meal and a view of the fountain show. The food and wine were delicious and the staff was attentive. They honored my request for a table with an excellent view. We saw the show 3 times during our meal. It was exactly the experience we were hoping for!

The noise is because of the perfect location. And outdoor seating.
We loved this restaurant. It is expensive but worth every AED

Third visit to the restaurant, waiters were disappointing from start to finish they paid no real attention to our table during our meal. Meet and great and bar staff were welcoming, waiters unfortunately were not in the same place.

Disappointing visiting this time.

Average at best, saying hello in Italian don’t make you an Italian Restuarant. Food was non descript and below average. Possibly the worst Italian food I’ve had.

Food was lovely. It would have been nice to have been given the option of an inside or outside table when I booked which was many weeks before the date of the reservation. In any event we were able to go onto the terrace to watch the fountains. Good food but expensive

Wie bei unseren vormaligen Besuchen erlebten wir einen sehr schönen Abend. Bester Tisch mit super Sicht auf die Fountains etc. wurde uns zugeteilt. Das Willkommen ist schon sehr einladend und in diesem Top-Italiener arbeiten auch Italiener die einen Top-Job machen. Die Karte zeigte wie immer sehr gut ausgewähle Speisen für jeden Geschmack. Die Speisen sind köstlich zunereitet und man kann dem Küchenteam, das man durch ein Fenster beobachten kann, nur gratulieren. Auch das Servicepersonal ist extrem effizient und doch sehr nett, hilfsbereit. Dieses Restaurant bleibt in den Top 3 von Dubai.

Amazing direct views of the Dubai fountain show when sat outside. The food was amazingly delicious though very pricey you are in fairness paying for the view but they do try to compensate prices with large portion sizes. Can’t argue with the price as it’s a perfect dining view and the service is impeccable fantastic experience overall. Had a lovely experience dining at Bice Mare would recommend!

The best restaurant with a view to the Dubai Fountain and Burj Al Khalifa lights.
It's a pity that the balcony railing has the same height of the person point of view when seated, so to see the fountain show, one has to stand up... Maybe install a higher wood floor?

Great location on DUBAI Mall fountains. Good food and service. Friendly staff.
Good for business dinner. Date night (romantic spot).
Good for visitors as well, thanks to the location/view of Burj Khalifa and DM fountains.

45 mn to choose and eat with Starters and Main Courses !
They want to have a maximum of clients and push you to the exit.
The view is amazing but there is a lot of restaurant around which have this view too.
Never come back again.
