The ambiance is great and the ski view is beautiful. The onion soup tastes good but should be thicker, the pizza was dry. Overall it was a good experience.

Sitting by the window with a glass of wine whiling away an afternoon! Great wines and good views! It seems there is a smoking pit in the middle but we just sat at the window so no problem. Didn't have food this time but last time was fine!

Lovely great drinks in front of the artificial snow ski pool jn the middle of heath and in the heart of Dubai at Emirates Mall. The food and appetisers are of top quality. It's a place that you can go by your self, friends and business colleagues. Just great to lay back and have an amazing time.

Always a nice bar to visit. Good selection of drinks and bar snacks, haven't tried the main menu items yet. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Only downside is it can be quite smokey at times.
