We requested and were given a great table next to the railings out on the terrace. We had an excellent view of the fountains and the Burj Khalifa light display. Very good service and the food was excellent.

Food was solid without being spectacular, given the price I expected something better. I'd return if I was in the area, but wouldn't go out of my way to book again.

Obviously a great view form the terrace of the fountains, however the tables are quite close and smoking is permitted.

The restaurant was lovely and sophisticated and the service was excellent. The views were amazing just what i wanted for the evening with my business colleagues
However, the food and drinks where extremely expensive.
One other thing to note is: My confirmation via text stated that... children below 12 years were allowed from18:00 until 20:00 in the terrace seating. We had children all around which was unfortunately not what we wanted as there was a baby in a highchair next to us. Very disappointing to say the least.

The food was amazing, the view of the fountains incredible but try to book at the terrace, front line. The waiter was very helpful. The only inconvenience was the obligation to order for each an appetizer and an entrée which ended up with us not being able to complete our meals...

Restaurant accepted our booking for lunch, but when we arrived, we were turned away as the restaurant was booked out for a private function. They didn’t care; barely an apology. Pathetic service and care for their customers. Idiots.

Great food as always, but the service was a little lacking. Completely ignored one guest when topping up wine. Did not tell us what the specials were, we had to prompt them and had to eventually ask. Couldn't understand one waiter whatsover. Struggled to get to our table despite advising them that we were with a guest who is a wheelchair user. Sad the service let the evening down, but the food was outstanding as always.

Very very expensive, very very average food, bones in salted fish, maitre'd didn't care. Entrees - tuna tartare had chopped up watermelon in it, seafood cerviche all mixed up so individual flavours lost. Not as described on menu. Only good thing was view of fountain (booked 'ring side' table).
Sadly it falls into category of restaurants that have a special location so the food quality does not seem to matter as the guests come for the location.
Bateaux cruise with dinner following night for similar cost, food was great and it included an evening cruise!

We were able to reserve a table on the terrace at sunset. The view of the Dubai Fountain was spectacular. The food was very good. There were a few problems however.
We felt rushed. We had a 6:45 reservation, arrived 15 minutes early and were seated right away. Ordered drinks and appetizers which came out quickly. Before we got half way through the appetizers, they were making room for the main course and asking us if we were finished with our appetizers. We weren't. Then, every time the fountain show starts, people seated inside come out on to the terrace and stand on top of you while you're trying to eat and enjoy the show. Two mid-priced appetizers, two main courses, 4 glasses of wine, AED 1100. Just over one hour at the table. We also had a Emaar gift card that they pretended not to know how to use and kept declining . Emaar customer service said that they were trying to charge the full price of the meal to the card, even though I told him at least 3 times that it was for AED 500. So, go for the show, expect to get bumped around a bit and paying a pretty stiff price. With that in mind, it was still a net positive experience.

Good views of the fountains and Burj Khalifa light show, but cramped seating, expensive pasta and service staff rush you through your 2 hour slot. Food was tasty but not worth the premium price. Does serve alcohol.

We were in Dubai for only 2 days this time but we had to continue our celebration of our 25th wedding anniversay and of course book our dinner at Bice Mare. We love everything there from the wine to the food and the beautiful view. We just love this place and have already recommended it to our friends. We will be back soon.

A terrace table is a must to see the water fountain show, and the Burj close up. Food very good but very expensive even for Dubai.

Disappointed on the reservation. We made a reservation for a table outside and it was excepted. When we got there we found out it was inside and couldn't view the water display or enjoy the cool breeze which is rare in Dubai.

The food was delicious!!!!

Without a doubt the best location for dinner in Dubai to see the Dubai fountains, food is excellent but the atmosphere is second to none.
If you want a memorable occasion this is the place to go, and make sure you get a table outdoors on the terrace.

Diners smoking on the balcony isn’t nice when you are eating close by
Views of the fountains and khalifa are great
