This restaurant offers the best lebanese food I have had in Dubai. Moreover, it offers the best view of the dubai fountains. Make sure you reserve a table in advance, especially if you want to sit on the balcony to watch the fountains. My favorites are the hummus with pine nuts, mixed grill, and fattoush salad.

This is a great place to take out-of-town friends and family to eat with a wonderful view of the fountains. The Lebanese food is good and the serving sizes are quite large. The fixed price menu gives visitors a good chance to sample a variety of starters and grilled meats but if you order for every person, you will find... More

Managed a balcony table so we could see the Fountain Musical Display on the Dubai Mall Lake. Food was good without being exceptional, service was very attentive, atmosphere was nice. Great place to watch the water display. Not cheap, but it was worth it to watch the display.

Highly recommended if you want to have a great oriental dinner with an overlook over the fountain and to see the show. The grilled dishes is great as well as the sweets (try ice cream with cotton candy: ghazal el Banet). You can enjoy the shisha as well.

We had Christmas dinner here and the service was prompt and staff friendly, but nothing beat the spectacular views of the dancing fountain and Burj Khalifa lit up at night. To enjoy the sights it's best to book a table for the evening/ night to enjoy the scenery. The food was pretty good as well.

We came here for my sister's birthday and had a lovely dinner with a gorgeous view. Using an Entertainer voucher enabled us to buy one main and get one free so we had the mixed grill and the sea food grill. The fish was cooked perfectly and the meat was very tastey (not dry at all). We also had some... More

Had a business dinner on the outside terrace - food was between good and very good and service very nice. Terrace is situated so that one can watch the dancing fountains as well as the light show of the Burj Khalifa. Very neat place for both business as well as couples.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
