Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My first visit to Gaia and it won’t be my last. The food was excellent, service also very good but given it is not cheap you would expect nothing less. We shared starters all of which were good, the baked feta and tuna being standouts....My main of sea bass was exceptional. Wine list prices on the high but this is difc. Well worth a visitMore

Food quality wise excellent restaurant 5/5. The crowded atmosphere lowers it down to 4. Must tries: Chilean seabass, watermelon salad and frozen yoghurt dessert. A bit pricey, even if in Dubai but you won’t regret

This is a very cool restaurant in Dubai, amazing Greek food. The filo pastry was definitely me and my family's absolute favorite. Don't even think about coming here if you're not going to order the filo pastry. Some of the dishes here were not to...my taste, but of course, this differs from person to person. Great restaurant though.More

I expected perfection in everything from Gaia. Unfortunately, everything was completely different. Yes, I can't say anything bad about Gaia's interior because it is mesmerizing. The food is also very tasty. As I can see from my experience traveling to 45 countries and over 400...restaurants, the service staff influences the success of the restaurant and the company. So I didn't see any superiority in service. Hopefully next time it will be better. Gaia, thank you for the delicious seafood dishes.More

By far the best restaurant in Dubai in terms of both food and service. We go to Gaia regularly and it never disappoints us. Location is elegant, food is fresh and tasteful, service is amazing. Kudos to the whole Gaia’s team!

Has to be the best restaurant in dubai. That sea bream is another level of experience. And the food and vibe is amazing. It’s pricey but it’s top notch, even on a global level

Went here in the evening with friends. Beautiful neighborhood. Food was fantastic. We felt like we had almost everything from the menu. Salt crusted fish, shrimp and the dessert was so delicious. Thank you Izu. Will be back

The journey start with the first trial for booking. For a 11 pm booking we have been ask for credit card details including a CVV number on the phone ( illegal) and of course the lady informs us they don’t accept American Express. Based on...our comments she finally accept to sent a mail with a form to fill. Mail we never received. Second attempt in the afternoon and with the very professional Lola all goes smooth without credit card ( I forget to say 250 aed charge no show was the morning reason for credit card). We came on time seating 11.05, nice table as usual. 11.17 a lady came to inform she need to take last kitchen order! Nobody ask if we want any aperitif of course…. Food very good as usual. Service a disaster where disappear the stylish well trained staff? No attention on table, need ask for nearly everything passing over the plate or front of face ….. 12.10 after getting appetizer and main without 1 min rest in between someone came with desert menu ( we still eating) for last order before closing and 12.20 last order for drink! At 12.40 they turn light half on and full on at 12.50 full on. We move out ad we don’t want the 2 bouncer at the entrance come to quick us out. As I say hood food but is it the experience we look for a Friday night dinner? They could at least inform us before booking to give us the choice instead to insist on a cvv for a credit card on the phone. To avoid!More

We had an Awful experience. Rude attitude strikes one at the very first moment they enter this resturant at the reception.Despite the earlier booking, “Nevene” was very rude to us stating “ So you came for desserts so no table for you while she just...confirmed booking before we arrive in-which it was stated that we are coming for desserts. Though she said this table by the bar is occupied by another customer though no one was sitting,her colleague offered the same table to other guests who arrived after us” When we reached out for the manager “ Mr John” to assist. He was literally shouting at us with a very rude attitude as “Nevene” briefed him. Without listening to us, he immediately started shouting and saying u cannot blame us “ instead of apologising!!!!!! What really a waste to hire such unprofessional staff to ruin any guest experience and Night. This is NOT the 1st time we face this attitude from staff. Unorganised team, bad Management and Not recommended for any visitor untill those issues are addressed and well trained staff replaces this arrogant attitude of current one.More

I want to share that I had a bad experience in this place, we went to dinner to celebrate a birthday with my family, the waiters and the general service was terrible, they went through to serve, they did not change the dish, the worst...of all is that when we ordered a fish and pasta we had been waiting more than two hours for the food and we asked for the bill to leave and they had not put it in the system so I would never come back two hours waiting to eat and they never brought the food.More
