Great welcome and as I have been visiting this restaurant each time I travel to Dubai the service is always very high, the quality of the food is always very good, recommend the veal escalope. The ambience is great and the staff always have a great smile. Nothing is too much trouble. Well recommend

We were greeted by Israel Gamba (assistant manager) and made to feel extremely welcome. Food was divine and the ambience was wonderful. We enjoyed it so much that we made a second visit here during our weeks stay. Highly recommended.

I am not crazy about pasta to be honest but the way they cook the pasta in Ciao is totally different. I can tell you that I have eaten all of it and I took a bit more from my wife plate as it was really good. The service is fast and with a smile and spotless. If you like... More

We've been here several times: first two times we had very good dinner experience, food was very good, fast service. However, last time was quite a disappointment. My husband's lamb was very good, but I ordered carbonara, which I did order here before, and it was an authentic carbonara the first two times. I actually came back here specially for... More

The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant. All of the staff were very attentive and polite. The food was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. There is a fabulous selection on the menu, very difficult to decide however, decide we did, we both chose the steak and I have to say one of the tastiest we have had. As mentioned before,... More

I am always skeptic about hotel restaurants. A group of us were having a cocktail in the Sheraton Club and talked to the waitress about the restaurants that were close. She recommended Ciao highly. We agreed and defended for an 8pm reservation. The first, abet certainly important thing that we noticed, was they were ready for us and actually eager... More

I've been surprised by the service of Daryl and is the friendliest ( though he is the only waiter i saw working in the restaurant aside from his manager). The food was two thumbs up! I will come back here again with my whole family.

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.
