Expert review of Bateaux Dubai

A nightly dinner cruise up and down the Dubai creek.

A long favourite among residents with visiting relatives to entertain, Bateaux Dubai is a dinner cruise that goes up and the down the creek each evening, offering guests a rather different view through its large windows. 

Food and drink: 

It's generally European dishes that are cooked in the ship's kitchens, with various lamb and fish dishes finding themselves on the menu. The quality is some way from Dubai's premier dining establishments, but the boating experience should make up for this. 

Ambience: 

Bateaux Dubai is almost purely an evening for tourists, where meals are soundtracked by the clicking of cameras. 

Service: 

Usually excellent. Given that you're sat on a boat, it's difficult for the waiters to ignore you.  

Location: 

The cruise sets off each evening from Al Seef Road, opposite the British Embassy in Bur Dubai at 8.30pm.  

Price advice: 

Expect to pay around 300 dirhams per person.
