The best restaurant with a view to the Dubai Fountain and Burj Al Khalifa lights.
It's a pity that the balcony railing has the same height of the person point of view when seated, so to see the fountain show, one has to stand up... Maybe install a higher wood floor?

Great location on DUBAI Mall fountains. Good food and service. Friendly staff.
Good for business dinner. Date night (romantic spot).
Good for visitors as well, thanks to the location/view of Burj Khalifa and DM fountains.

45 mn to choose and eat with Starters and Main Courses !
They want to have a maximum of clients and push you to the exit.
The view is amazing but there is a lot of restaurant around which have this view too.
Never come back again.

We went there for a BD celebration and that was not the right choice as outside tables come time limit of 2 hours, all the dinner waiters were rushing us and this amazing food and wine was not fully enjoyable.

We reserved a table outside to see the water lightshow. I asked for a starter without mayonnaise, but had to explain why I didn’t want mayo and it was almost impossible to get without. We waited at least 40 minutes for our main course and when it finally came, it was really disappointing. Canned tuna and uncooked pasta. Paid around dhs 600 for two starters, two of the lowest priced main course and one water. What a disappointing visit...

Food delivious, staff friendly and attentive. Excellent ambience. First time experienced minimum order requirement for outdoor dining, (must have starter and main) which is very strange. Allow customers to have the Dining experience of choice, this Should not be a requirement of such an establishment. Otherwise fantastic evening ( we had 3 courses and drinks) :)

Obwohl ich die Preisliste in diesem Restaurant kannte buchte ich einen Tisch IN ERSTER REIHE für den besonderen Anlass.
Dort angekommen, wurde schnell ein Tisch in 3. Reihe gestellt, da war das Essen auch nicht preiswerter, aber die Sicht auf die Fontänen und den Burj Khalifa schön verdeckt.
Ich habe mit den Kellnern diskutiert es half nichts. Wir waren im Business Outfit alles hat gestimmt. Sehr unfreundlich, deshalb habe ich zum
Ersten Mal auch kein Trinkgeld gegeben. Ein Hauptgericht zwischen 40-100€ und das ist es mir mit dem Blick nicht Wert gewesen... die billigste Flasche Wein 100€!

The restaurant called requiring a credit card to secure payment(no problem) and one appetizer and one entree per guest mandatory (unusual). The table location requested was provided - very nice. Not so nice - the food. After waiting unusually long for initial greeting by server we were informed there was NO pasta available which is over half of the entree selections. Supposedly the “pasta machine” was broken. We ordered the Aragosta di Scoglio alla Griglia (lobster), Filetto di Salmone,vegetali grigliati e salsa allo yogurt (salmon), and Filetto di tonno, Caponata agli agrumi (tuna) - all dishes were bland with absolutely no flavor other than charring from the grill. Additionally, while being disappointed by below average quality of food the table next to us (who were seated after us) was served pasta! The best part of this restaurant is the location to the Dubai Fountains.

Because we were a bit early, we were seated at a table inside the restaurant, while waiting for our outside table to be ready. The service was good and the diner tasted very nice. The view directly at the fountains obviously was a very nice extra.
