Food was outstanding esp crab legs and surf and turf. Both the fish and steaks are amazing. On this trip we brought friends who had never been and our servers Kiran and Esentur went above and beyond, giving us recommendations and stellar service. If you're looking for a date night or special occasion dinner, Surf and Turf is a great choice.

Had a lovely dinner here with friends on our recent stay at JBH. Hear many mixed reviews of Rockfish from other guests so finally decided to give it a try as we will be staying at Al Naseem this summer when JBH is closed for refurb. The menu offers lots of Crudo for starter, some strange combinations that didn't really sound that appealing. I had the tuna which was actually very nice. For main the surf & turf, although far too expensive was also very good. Dessert, which was a chocolate dish of varying textures, was a nice end to a lovely meal.

Service was fantastic. We had an eccentric Egyptian waiter who was very knowledgable about the menu and most helpful.

After dinner we moved along to the couches at Drum Bar where I had a Hendricks and Ginger Beer (which was served in a 39p price marked Barrs can) for 80 AED!! I drank it slowly :)

A great place for lunch with its proximity to the raked sandy beach, overlooking the Burj (alArab) and even more elegant in the evening. The charming Turkish manager and smiling multi-cultural staff are helpful but unobtrusive; the gin trolley is wheeled around with great panache by a knowledgeable cocktail mixer who decides what type of gin cocktail you might like by chatting with you. The best dish on the menu is cod baked in salt, which comes whole to the table and is filleted with great dexterity in front of one. Watermelon is probably the best dessert.

Dear Ms. Natalia S,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on TripAdvisor.

It was good to know that you were impressed by the location and the view of the restaurant which we offer, the service which was provided to you and of course our most famous gin cart.

However, it concerns me that you found our food selection medium-quality. I'm very positive that you need to come back and try a different dishes in our menu and definitely second chance is always the sweeter one.
