It's always hot in Dubai, even in the evenings, so be prepared to sweat through dinner if you choose to eat outside. This is a nice place to eat if you find yourself eating dinner at a mall. We were transiting through Dubai from central Asia and have stopped here several times before. You can view the fountain show from... More

I'm Italian. There is NOTHING Italian here. But ok. There are so many fake all over the world, one less one more. We got a dessert. Cannot say anything against the waiters, good smiley. The tables are dirty, chairs and other seats dirty as well. The food is absolutely tasteless, fat, full of sugar and nothing else. So that, I... More

Front row seat for the fountain display and first rate service from Carluccios staff. They took time to stop and chat. Will be first port of call on return to the mall.

So this review is for the Carluccio's in Dubai Marina Mall. Many of the comments (and pictures) in this location appear to be for The Dubai Mall branch. We have been to Carluccio's in both the UK and now Dubai. Carluccio's was an exciting place to go that made simple Italian food with the novelty of a deli area and... More

Guaranteed standard Italian food. Service was brisk but friendly. Annoying that they constantly push product to buy while you are reading menu or waiting for service. One of our family had to leave the restaurant to find a toilet and the staff realised and held her food hot until she returned. Would I go again? - Yes.

Outstanding food, probably the best value for money Italian in Dubai. The service was slightly slow on the day we visited with seemingly no specific zones allocated to waiting staff. This was slightly frustrating but the food was incredible.

We stayed for 3 songs.....so a bit over 1 1/2 hrs. No rush to finish by staff, which we appreciated. We chose a table with a good view of the singing fountains outside. We had cheese garlic bread, a couple cokes, lasagna, and pappardelle with shrimp. It turned out the pasta was fresh.....a very nice surprise. We know this is... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
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 to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
