    great location to see the fountains and Burj Khalifa. The food is very good, but overpriced and the price of the wine is outrageous. I guess you pay a premium for location. I enjoy taking guests to this restaurant. they are always impressed. I had Turbot last night which tasted lovely, i know its an expensive fish but the portion was tiny!

    Great location with the best view on the fountains. Terrace is a bit crowded as everyone wants to sit outside for the fountain show. Staff was quick and attentive. Food is delicious. I had carpaccio and cacio e pepe pasta with truffles plus couple glasses of Prosecco. My friend had fried calamari and lobster pasta plus a glass of Prosecco. Portions were big enough. I live in US and we get same portion size in a good restaurants. Portions are bigger than in France) The bill with included 10% service charge came to $300 for 2 which isn’t bad given the location.

    As a first time tourist, I wanted to see the fountain show for the first time. I asked in advance for a table beside the balustrade, but was placed in a middle row of tables, where from was a vir hard tô enjoy the view, that was the whole purpose of the night. Anyway, the food and service was great!

    Food average and extremely overpriced compared to other similar in Dubai. Service severely lacking along with ambiance. Cigarette smoke wafting in from outside as we eat , music terrible and just not suited to a dining “experience”… not worthy of the hype or price.

    Ridiculously overpriced. They didn’t have the fish I wanted so I ordered a Salmon which would have sold at any other Dubai restaurant for 1/3rd of the price. Very ordinary. Pastas were good. But seriously not worth the inflated prices. Meal for 2 Adults and 3 kids without alcohol and desserts was about dh1400!!! Service was rushed and took forever to get attention of servers. Had to ask for a bottle of olive oil 3 times. Meal took ages to arrive. There are many other restaurants in Dubai with similar quality at 1/3rd the price. Not recommended.
