6 of us went to Brunch Nation at The Croft, Dubai Marriot Harbour, Dubai last night as a close friends pre-Christmas dinner and to celebrate my Husband Jim's birthday! We were given an amazing welcome by Rohan, Jane and the team as usual- it's not...my first or last visit to the Croft. Our waiter, Roger, couldn't do enough for us. The food, the ambiance,outside on the terrace overlooking Dubai Marina, was fantastic, especially now the weather is perfect and the music - you won't hear great indie and pop British music like this anywhere else in Dubai. The sumptuous food which of course includes a decent British selection including fried mars bar -you have to try it once! is brought to you, another added bonus. The brunch is great fun and great value and available on the Entertainer. Thanks for the special cocktails named after our guests, such a lovely touch. See you again soon!More

This evening we went to The Spot in Marriot Marina. We’ve had a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio and a Garlic Cheese bread as a starter. For dinner we had Sea Bass and the Burger. Sea Base was spot on, the burger a little dry...but ok!More

A Sunday roast on a Saturday. Great selection chicken, beef, lamb or salmon. I had the lamb and it was so tender. Great portion size. Well cooked and lovely gravy. Good selection of desserts. I had the creme brûlée which was beautiful! Other choices were...Roly poly, and chocolate brownie with Guinness ice cream. Bonus that it’s in the entertainer too! A must visit. Great service from our waiter, never a delay and very attentive.More

The Croft Much Nation is always on the list as a great choice for all sorts of different reasons, be it a birthday, simply a Friday night out or having visitors from abroad. It ticks all the boxes. I have been here a number of...times so know to always expect good service from being met at reception and looked after throughout the evening. On my recent visit my friend and I were looked after by Roger - who was fantastic. He was friendly, without being obtrusive and talked us knowledgeably through the menu while keeping our drinks topped up. Overall great service, a good variety of food, although the dishes do vary in quality, and with it being on Entertainer well worth the price. The staff are always super helpful over the phone when booking too! One suggestion I have though is to perhaps look at freshening up the menu a bit every so often.More

First time to visit The Croft to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The staffs were friendly upon welcoming us and the ambiance of the resto pub is relaxing at this modern British gourmet. For starters, we had Steamed Mussels which was perfectly cooked and tasted fresh...while bathe in generous cream sauce with dill herbs and paired generously buttered toast. The Roast Beef Salad was cooked to perfection to its tenderness blends with the vegetables and dressing, flavors burst distinctly in every bite. The main course, Ribeye Steak and Chips which was done according to our preference was tender and juicy with balanced amount of salt and when dipped with mustard bòurnaise heightens more flavor and followed by perfectly seasoned potato chips. The Seafood Tagliatelle pasta was al dente and the garlicky tomato sauce highlighted the seafood without tangy stings but subtle blend of sauces coating the pasta and seafood well. The Beef Wellington was tender and the puff pastry was baked perfectly, the root vegetables gives texture. The Fish and Chips was the last to be touched as we have gastronomically indulged to the first main courses. To our surprise after being there last on our plates, the crunchiness of the batter, the softness of the Cod was still at its best, actually excellent!! Our friend was surprised with a cake and the staffs were so accommodating to our request. Such an impressive harmony to watch the kitchen staff and Chef in their open kitchen is quite entertaining to see. We had a great time and never noticed the time passes. The view of Dubai Marina from afternoon until night was majestic. But the food, service and ambiance would make us come back again. A special thanks to Chef Alyanna and her team for creating delicious food and staffs namely, Rahindra for eagerly taking our group photos, Naomi and Roger for proactively attending on us and made us not need to call them most of the time. Excellent service and great food! Relaxing ambiance and the music playlist was of good choice!More

Went with a group of friends. 8 in total. We arrived at different points within a half hour period. Staff very inattentive. Had to keep asking for additional menus to be brought and for drinks. Food was OK, there were a couple of errors with...the order which were rectified. In the 3 hours we were there, we only were offered an initial drink and nothing thereafter. If we had, we would have ordered more. Noone came to see if we were happy with the food. If they were busy, you could understand why service may be lapse but the restaurant only had a few tables in and plenty of staff. Shame they were so disinterested. It was also freezing in there too.More

After a long search, my wife found The Croft evening brunch to celebrate her 40th Birthday with some good friends. To call us "seasoned brunchers" would certainly be an understatement, so we are in a decent position to opine about this evening. Simply put, it...was amazing. Each course is brought to the table as sharing platters which makes the experience more laid back and enjoyable. The salad starters were fresh and tasty followed by the Asian selection with very good Dim sum, chicken and cashew nuts and fantastic beef lettuce wraps. The highlight of the food came in the form of the Indian curries including an excellent Butter Chicken and Lamb Rogan Josh. The final mains course was a platter of British favourites with cracking Yorkshire Puddings! The desserts were also good but a struggle to eat much after the amazing food we'd already had. The drink service was great and a nice selection of cocktails and gin mixers, plus spirits, house wine and sparkling wine. The music was brilliant with a mix of 80s retro classics. The staff were friendly and were helpful in arranging the birthday girl's table decorations and bring out the birthday cake. Although this evening brunch is on Entertainer, we'd happily pay the full charge of 399 AED per head for this. It's not often that everyone is so happy with so many aspects of a brunch!More

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
