Returning to this restaurant did not return my previous impression. It seems it has not been cleaned ever since.. The menu is stale and unchanged but the cook might have been replaced or perhaps fed-up on the day, the result was fish that could have been cooked in pakistan. Service girl bear a permanent grunt of the face and overall... More

Stopped off here as the place looked really interesting (an old Dhow converted to a restaurant moored on the creek). The service must get the first mention, it's really good very attentive and helpful group of waiters. The food itself is good well presented and a reasonable price especially if you are used to Dubai prices. As it was my... More

It is an old Dhow (Boat) converted to a restaurant. You can dine on the upper deck or down in the cabin. Arabic and Mediterranean grilled meat is the specialty. Try their mixed grill consisting of lamb, chicken, beef and fish.

Very nice service, lovely food, good price, very large portions so beware. We sat out on the deck looking over the water. You felt like there might be an old lady out back doing all the cooking. The food was just as good as somewhere we ate on the waterfront in a more fancy location for twice the price. Taxi... More

We were staying at the Holiday International hotel and stopped here for a dinner on Wednesday night. It had just rained so it was a little tricky getting to the restaurant with the nearby roads flooding. The restaurant was pretty quiet and we got a table facing the lagoon on the upper deck. I thought it had very nice ambience.... More

The prices were reasonable, but the food was so-so. We ordered greek salad and hommos. Both were delicious. For main course we had steak, which was a disappointment. It was a thin piece of meat which was cooked too hard. It looked like something we would get from a fast food place back home. When this is said, maybe they... More

The setting makes this restaurant worth a visit, as it is located on a Dhow boat, typical of this gulf area and with an history. The fish dishes are reasonably good with decent prices but the location really makes this restaurant stands out from the others.

We stumbled upon this restaurant during our weekend in Sharjah and we were pleased we did. The views of the waterfront are excellent and the decor and atmosphere made it for us. The food is fine - typically Lebanese with prices slightly higher than the High Street. The fruit cocktail was disappointing- overall worth a visit!
