Food was great, would have given it 5 star if the four waiters hadn't stood watching us eat. They need to think about so many staff in such a small area. Other than that I would go again.More

We loved this waterfront restaurant...so much so that we came back a second time. Both visits were for lunch and we could not have been more pleased...crisp salads of various kinds, excellent hummus with grilled lamb on top, kebabs. All of the food was delicious....More

This is a nice location for lunch as you can watch the boats on the Dubai Creek. It is also conveniently located near the textile souk. The food was average, our salads swimming in the dressing. So I would not go there for the food.

Surprised at the recent reviews. We happened onto this place and were very pleased. The Greek salad was exceptional,as was the chargrilled lamb. Hummus was good,the only slight disappointment were the cheese spring rolls. Good portion size,great views. Would return.

Lovely location on a shaded deck over Dubai Creek. Our middle eastern hot and cold starters were perfect with our soft drinks. We were satisfactorily welcomed by staff and enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Definitely would go again for snacks and drinks.

place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
