If you’re looking for some local food, this is great. Big portions, and diverse in taste. We ate and drank our way through a number of different tastes and left happy.

Seven sands has everything you want in a restaurant: friendly staff, beautiful aesthetic, and great authentic Emirati food! Also in a prime location where the beach and other shops are footsteps away. Parking is also very easy.

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

Description
Welcome to Seven Sands. A gastronomic pleasure inspired by the rich culture and history of the Emirates. Since the beginning of time, food and eating has taken its place as the central activity of all of mankind and one of the most significant trademarks of any culture. Like pizza is to Italy, truffles to France and saffron to Persia, we want the world and our guests to discover the UAE through our cuisine. At Seven Sands, food is never only about satisfying the appetite. It’s about sharing, about honesty, and above all, it’s about identity. We couldn’t agree more. Owned by Dubai World Trade Centre, the Emirati cuisine specialists, Seven Sands represents a blend of ethnic flavours and inspirations. With an unsurpassed reputation catering to royal events and celebrity galas, there are great expectations surrounding Seven Sands.We hope to live up to every single one of them from starter to dessert.
