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.
