I booked this resturant for my parent's 50th Wedding anniversary. I made it clear it was a special occasion and was able to get a table on the terrace for 10 people. When we arrived our waiter was so rude, was rolling his eyes when we asked for some information about the cuisine and generally disinterested. They forgot some of... More

Empty inside but Asian female hostess at the entrance did not want to seat an interracial couple until I spoke and she saw I was an American. Our food was just ok and the place stayed empty for the 2 hours we were there. Don't waste your time check out the other restaurants.

Can get too loud and busy considering the restaurant overlooks the burj and water fountains. The food is relatively good and pricey if you include alcohol. Appetizers are larger in portion than usual so don't over order. For better views, book in advance and sit outside in the smoking section.

From ordering the food to paying, the service was bad. The server was more interested in what was happening around. The waiter clearly had not listened, as main dishes were servered with the starter. None of the staff were attentive. I had to get napkins myself. When I did managed to ask somebody for a straw, they forgot, so I... More

Suitable for family, friends and non formal business dining. There is nice view from the terrace on the fountains. Make sure to book your table in advance as this restaurant is very successful thanks to the great Lebanese food served, the kind and efficient service. At Abdel Wahib, Lebanese food tastes the right way. You will not leave hungry if... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
