it's a nice place to have lunch or dinner in while you are in the JBR. but remember to take some photos before you leave! the Arabic writings on the walls are all poetry or Palestinian sayings.

We went for lunch when the restaurant was empty. However, were were disappointed with the service since we had to keep calling the guy. The food was also average. We had local delicacies. The only thing we liked was the chicken shawarma and hummus platter. Rest were really average.

I was looking for a traditional middle eastern meal on a recent visit to Dubai, however my husband prefers Mediterrean food. SimSim had a good selection to suit us both. I opted for the falafel and he had steak. The place itself is decorated beautifully with a selection of quirky stools stuck on the wall as decoration on one wall,... More

Conveniently located close to the marina, this restaurant is a welcome change from all of the big international chain restaurants typically found around this area. The food was great and the staff really friendly and accomodating. My only regret was finding this restaurant close to the end of our trip, but still managed to squeeze another dinner with my family... More

Excellent restaurant with great food, service and good prices. Located on the marina so a great location. This was easily the best of the 3 Iftar buffets which I had during my Dubai stay. Great food and loads of choice. 99Dh

The lentil soup was the best as well as the mint lemonade. This place is a must for those who are visiting Dubai! It is right in the middle of the Dubai Marina area

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.
