We had a great dinner after a long day at Dubai Rugby 7s. Fresh and tasty food and very friendly staff with good English skills (at least our waiter). We had some pasta and salads and the lobster float to share as a starter. The ice tea is also good. If at Dubai Mall, this is a good quiet place... More

I actually meet this Resturant at Dubai mall. The food is good and the drink is much much delicious. The taste of pizza is good but the price is a little expensive. It prepared after 15-20 minutes but it is hot enough. The service is good but they don't care to everyone.

This restaurant is very busy and there are plenty of staff by the entrance trying to attract more customers and get them seated. But that is where the sense of urgency stops. Once you arrive at your table you are given a menu then expect to wait up to 30 minutes for a drinks order then possibly another 30 for... More

The restaurant was not very busy compare to the others around so that should have been our first clue. Ordered a simple pizza and dessert and it took a very long time. When the pizza arrived it was cold (not even a little bit warm). I asked for chilli flakes and Parmesan and by the time it arrived we had... More

Sat outside in the warmth of the night. Tried the Buffalo cauliflower as a starter as it is was a special, not on the main menu which was absolutely delicious, definitely worth trying if you can,a little bit of heat coming from the ever so light salad leaves, for me a winner. Then onto a main of arugula & quinoa... More

Firstly, CPK is one of my favourite restaurants! But this experience was simply way too poor. Service was incredibly slow, even though they weren't that busy. Kids meals came out first, and after another 30 minutes I asked where our mains were. I was told they 'burnt' the pizzas and had to remake them. No apology and no discount offered.... More

They have a huge menu and all the food we ordered was yummy. Amazing food and it helps if you are sitting outside in the evening and then you can watch the dancing fountains.

Decent food it nothing special. Would not recommend or return to this restaurant. Plenty of other nicer restaurants in the mall. Do not choose this one.

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.
