We stopped here for some quick refreshment after supper. We stuck to the sorbetto as it was 100 degrees outside. The passion fruit and mango were very delicious. Friendly staff and samples helped make it a great experience. I don't think you can go wrong here.

It was late evening when we went to a little cooler. You can only eat outside so no air conditioned place to shelter from the heat. Lovely selection of ice creams, lots of options and really nice. Prices not too bad - apologies can't remember exact cost. As with everywhere we seem to go in Dubai lovely staff.

Ice cream was okay, they only have outside sitting area which would be wonderful during winter, but not during the summer in UAE.

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.
