Loca in Dubai Marine Resort is one of the older haunts in Dubai but still outdoes many of its younger competitors. We visited for Friday Brunch which is excellent value for money for a 5 hour stint! The restaurant was fairly busy and had a...More

We went there for dinner and there were several items I had never had before. The food was delicious, the service could not have been better and the ambiance was perfect. Loved it!

Despite the popularity of Mexican food around the world, I've struggled to find a Mexican restaurant in Dubai which served really tasty food. And by tasty I don't necessarily mean 100% authentic as one would expect in Mexico. The things is, none of the Mexican...More

Great atmosphere to go with a group of friends for drinks and dinner. The guacamole is amazing and they prepare it right in front of you. Delicious food, and a big menu so you are spoilt for choice.

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
