I had the cheesecake. It was very good. My partner had the penne arbibiatta and really enjoyed the dish. It was moderately to expensively priced. Would visit here again.

Has a great view and atmosphere. The food is very good. The staff is friendly. They open from the early hours of morning which is good for an early breakfast on the marina.

Love the food and the setting perfect for business breakfast or lunch in DIFC. I tried their rocket salad, salmon avocado salad, Lavant breakfast, shakshouka, club sandwich, bresaola sandwich and a specialty chicken dish that I forgot the name of.

Recently refurbished and doubled in size this Bateel has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating areas. Nice terrace overlooking the marina - smoking and non-smoking areas. Menu, as other Bateels, is a mix of local and international dishes.

I have visited cafe Bateel in various places, many times since living in Dubai. It belongs in a handful of places that every time you go, you know the standard will be the same- EXCELLENT!!! However, upon walking in to this particular branch, I was made to feel exceptionally uneasy by one member of staff who looked me up and... More

We treated ourselves to a breakfast out to start the week and were not disappointed. Eggs and turkey bacon, yoghurt and granola and excellent coffee to boot. Slightly less attentive service at 7.30am to 11am on a weekend but overall recommended :-)

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.
