Lovely restaurant with excellent food if you want a relaxed view of the fountains. Very good ingredients and skilled cooking. The bar next door is also good with fountain views.

Ok, so this was truly a one off but what a night. The best view in Dubai for the fountain and the fireworks (some may not agree!) Food was good, not exceptional, but good. Service was fantastic, the staff were bringing in the drinks almost...More
