If you like to taste local Arabic food, this is a place you should consider. We went to this restaurant twice and had great dishes. Besides the food we enjoyed also the view from the deck and the friendly service.

We were looking for an authentic local experience which lead us here. Good food, and good value. Very friendly staff and quite attentive, but needed less of a western interior fit-out for the benefit of atmosphere to match the food.

Seven sands stands for the 7 Emirates/city. They offer local Emirati food. The style and decor of the restaurant is modern, which goes well with where the restaurant is located in Dubai JBR. Food is lovey if you are into local Emirati food.

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.
