The food is very average for their prices but we had no problem with the level of service.
The main reason I guess people come here is for the views of the fountain out on the veranda which is were we sat. It was very nice to look at but that was it, nothing spectacular to be honest.

This is sits directly in front of the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain, and offers an absolutely breath taking view. With the water fountain running periodically, you can’t ask for a better seating and show.

We came here for the sheesha (hookah), and left very happy with the service. The view was the cherry on a sundae; it really made our experience so much better.

I don’t think anyone can find a better place to sit and relax with good hookah in Dubai than a spot like this.

Been to this restaurant in the past a few times but this time round it was a disgrace!! The food came out cold and mean actually hard and cold like some left overs, then when I complained they said they will serve the whole meal over again but only bought out half the meal and then refused to acknowledge that the complete meal had not been replaced. My two children were not able to eat anything as the food was too hard!! Definitely avoid this place it’s not what it used to be, the food is bland and the customer service is just appalling.

Service is really bad. Hostess started speaking on the phone while showing us our table , so she literally left us in the middle of the room , chatted nicely for couple of minutes and then returned back. Waiters are not even half nice as in other restaurants around the city . Food is good . You can see fountains from balcony but have to book 3 days in advance to get first row seating . And also I won’t advise it as when show starts everyone is literally over your head . Basically every half an hour. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge but service was so bad that we would never consider to come back . Especially in the city with so many options and famous for its service.

The restaurant is very good with nice service & food. It has a great view over the fountain and the Burj Khalifa. Visit between 20:00-22:30 to enjoy the experience of the dancing fountains. Make sure to book in advance, at the balcony, in order to have a good view. The food is quite good and not overpriced given the location. It doesn't have a great variety or any extraordinary cuisine, but the food is good. Try the hummus, it's very good. Pay attention to the prices, as they do not include the VAT.
