I have visited Cafe Bateel twice during my recent business trip. They got great selection of food including salads, cakes and coffee - exactly what I needed for my short business lunch. Food was delicious, could be delivered a bit faster but still OK. I highly recommend to visit the place

We headed here for breakfast on a Friday. Sat outside on a full porch; they do a good job of creating shade with umbrellas so no one has to sit in the sun, and it really doesn't feel crowded. The food was very tasty and fresh--I had the shakshuka (definitely recommend), green apple juice, and a flat white. They'd clearly... More

Chose Cafe Bateel as a spot for brunch one afternoon whilst strolling around the marina. Of all the nearby eateries, it was noticeably busier with a mix of nationalities. We sat out the front and staff were very attentive. A small group of very rude Eastern Europeans sat nearby and were particularly rude to the staff who dealt with them... More

I go to Cafe Bateel only for two reason, the first one is for their Arabic coffee and the second is for their French toast which by far better than any other French toast I ate.

The first visit for lunch in quite a long time. Thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. We ordered 3 different salads. The small size was easily big enough to have as a main meal. The ingredients were incredibly fresh and really tasty. The staff were very polite and attentive. Would highly recommend for lunch or dinner and their bread is fantastic!

Frequently visit this restaurant for breakfast. The omelettes are great and the staff is wonderful. The view of the marina is very nice from here also. Very pleasant experience!

My husband and I visited Cafe Battle for the afternoon tea on a surprisingly rainy Saturday afternoon in DIFC. The restaurant itself is very nicely fitted, the staff greeted us and asked if we were joining them for afternoon tea. We decided to have the Classic afternoon tea, which arrived with fizzy date juice (not to our taste!) and an... More

Just around the corner from our hotel, this was a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a coffee and pastry. Much more economic than the our hotel. Beautifully clean and delightful attentive staff.............................................................................................

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
