Inside the restaurant you have a nice decor of mexican style. Starters are good but main course needs slight improvement in taste and quantity. View from this hotel is good

My order was delivered in about (1) hour, the nacho chips were still warm and so was the burrito. I got a whole bag of nacho chips, very large salad, (3) large portions of salsa, refried beans, guacamole and a large burrito. The portions are enough for two meals for me. The guacamole was very tasty, the salsa had good... More

We have been coming here for years. Really good Mexican food at an ok price. Service can be a bit up and down. Great location on the JBR walk. The Fajitas are always very good.

The brisket tacos are a hit, and make sure you have a margarita. Food was done in good time. The guacamole was alright, needed some more spice. Nice place that is open even for late lunch.

Very good, delicious meats. The location is JBR which is an attraction point itself. Personnel is polite and professional. The preparation of food takes some time but it is worth

I have tried a number of Mexican places outside of Mexico / American south west and for being so far away from there the food was ok. Not the best o have ever had but then again all things are relative. For UAE I would give it a 4. If this restaurant was back in the US probably a 2-3... More

Came here for lunch as menu outside sounded promising. Worst meal since arriving in Dubai. Was dry. Chips undercooked. Restaurant was empty and we were the only diners , should have been a tell tell sign. Staff pleasant enough , but failed to ask if food was ok , even when they cleared plates still full of food. Wouldn't come... More

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.
