Only experienced the extensive breakfast menu(s) but the evening events looked wonderful too. Well presented and cooked fresh in various national cisines.

I was not impressed by this buffet but the location was good, especially from the patio looking over to the sea. We went for the Asian themed night which had sushi, some tempura, noodle soup, selection of salads and some hot dishes plus 3 vegetarian curries. Food quality was OK but choice and amount was certainly lacking.

First time visiting the restaurant and experiencing the Friday brunch. Sat outside on the lovely terrace, with dj, champagne/ margarita bars, a lovely atmostphere and excellent customer service all afternoon from the staff (specifically Babila). Great selection of drinks and very good food. Can't fault it and all for a good price!

The menu had items a lot cheaper than other places we have been too whilst we have been here, and the beer and wine was a lot cheaper. Great for a lunchtime snack. I can highly recommend the croque Madame.

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.
