Good view of Dubai Fountain from restaurant

Family of 4. Where will we be able to watch the Dubai fountain and have dinner?

Any suggestions on Souk Al Bazar restaurants?

See on the web that they have a partial view on the fountain.

Hi

If you follow the signs out from the Dubai Mall there is a small bridge ahead of you. Cross it and you will arrive at Urbano.

We sat outside last week, they have quite decent aircon and have a good Italian menu with great ice cream.

Two of us had three courses with Coffee for £55

People on the forum have suggested higher vantage points however we enjoyed our evening.

Thanks for info.

Price not that bad.

Our poor South Africans have to x2 everything so Dubai is quite expensive for us.

Hi I watched the fountains in August... If you don't want to spend money on a meal. Go into the Dubai Mall pick up a mall brochure/map look for Nando's and there are double doors out of the mall to concrete sitting areas to watch them.

Italian Urbano is probably the most reasonably priced of the restaurants with views over the fountains. But it is located towards the side of the souk al bahar so not the best views of the whole fountain. Next to it is the Lebanese seafood restaurant Sammach; good prices for what they serve.

For the best views of the whole fountain the rather pricier Rivington Grill or the more deli-like Baker and Spice have spectacular views from their terraces. Ask for a table near the edge of the terrace overlooking the water. Dean and Deluca is more of a coffee shop but also has great views; and is a cheap alternative as you can grab a coffee and dessert there to watch the show. Their sandwiches and salads are not really worth the price.

From the Dubai Mall side the Wafi Gourmet and Carluccio's both have great views of the entire fountain too. They have outdoor seating areas by the fountains.

TGI Friday's also looks over the fountains. If you are really on a budget you could grab some take-out from the food court and eat it on the promenade area, there are plenty of benches.
