    It’s very important to know how to reach there since in Madinat Jumirah the souk is quite confusing. The restaurant is by the creek with electric Abra roaming around it . The food is clearly amazing it’s highly recommend to go for fish grill or bake in oven , I had grilled sea bream opened on the middle with nice light seasoning and pilaf rice is a good option as side order.

    The food was top notch and was fresh with amazing balance of flavours. Service could have been more proactive but that night the whole venue was packed. But I will always come back for the excellent food.

    One of our absolute favourite restaurants and one we keep returning to time and time again. Everything is on point - the food, service, atmosphere. Absolute must haves - flaming saganaki, white bait, calamari, lamb souvlaki.

    The atmosphere was great and the food as well and our waiter Boris was very good! The one thing that's got me stumped that the hostess asked us to leave in 15 minutes as they have other booking even the food was not ready yet! Its first time in my life in Dubai been asked that. Ofcours i refused to leave but i was shocked !

    The food was flavourful and overall nice. Due to a serious miscommunication, not our doing, we were left feeling rushed throughout the dinner. The fact that all reservations are limited to two hours must be much more explicitly communicated, both online and during the confirmation call. The service was “promptish”, but not really attentive. I would recommend this venue only with the necessary actions though.

    The table we got wasn't nice although we reserved before. Service was friendly but slow. When the wine was delivered they forgot the wine glasses. The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice. We might go again. Overall it was a good experience.
