First and foremost, dont mention to make a reservation for the outside seating area in the balcony / terrace which has limited seating if you want to enjoy your meal , amazing view and the musical dancing fountains. They have a fixed menu as well as Ala Carte. Our waiter was Nizar who suggested us the dishes which had some... More

Good Lebanese Food+Chance to sit outside and watch the Burj Khalifa View+Dubai Mall makes this place crowded. Despite this, service is outstanding to dispatch the dozens of customers awaiting for their food or to be seated. Food is good, although the amount of people makes it difficult to serve it on time. Great place, really.

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.

Thank Barry T

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.
