The ambiance and food were fantastic. This was the best place to eat at the hotel and experience the grand architecture and palace grounds. Eating ocean-side in a cabana after sunset was the perfect ending to our trip. It was truly dinning in a palace with royalty. Try the short ribs and mocktails! Book a reservation in advance. We shared... More

Came for cocktails with my partner. Great hotel, great location, beautiful setting. Cocktails were quite pricey for not tasting very strong. Nice but couldn't taste the alcohol. There was a female DJ playing. The music was good but not a great mix as all sounded the same & a little boring. She seemed bored herself & seemed to be having... More

The place layout is really great with amazing view especially these days when you can dine outside, if it's a special occasion then take the romantic dinner table which stands alone with privacy, waiters and management are very friendly and professional, food is really great and well presented, prices are highly overrated that it needs to be revised as other...

A surprise for my aunt who was visiting as she had been to Emirates Palace before but had no idea there was an outside. Booked a table very easily and the surprise was worth it. We had scallops and prawns to start and then salmon with hollandaise and spinach and seafood paella risotto. Had no idea the portion size was... More

Superb food in magical beach side setting. Some portions are enormous OK if you have a good appetite but you can share. Service impeccable as expected at the Emirates Palace.[ Nice to see Charmaine & Brenda again.]

We had been past the BBQ al Qasr previously and smelled that unique bbq smell that is just so compelling. We went back as soon as the temperature had dropped enough to dine outside and found to our dismay that it isn't really a bbq restaurant at all anymore. The food is prepared in a kitchen, not on barbecues outside... More
