Default Nice Outdoor location for lunch in Dubai?

Hi

Trying to find somewhere nice with outdoor seating for lunch today.

Any suggestions? Any type of food but will need to be licenced as the good lady has been working hard on flights and wants a glass of wine!!
willing to go to any location (im in the greens).

Used to like the creek yacht club but would like somewhere else.

thanks in advance

Last time I was over I went and sat outside Mango Tree in Dubai Mall. Look out over the water, they do a 70/80 AED lunch time special and the food was great. I would recommend it.

Or at the Madinat? BBC, Barzar etc etc etc?

Or at Marine Resort in Jumeirah? There are a few good places in there.

Rosso at the Amwaj Rotana on JBR?

I was in that Rosso the other week , decent bar and great outside area .

What have they done with that traffic around that area , it's a proper mess , it's getting worse . Took me 30 mins to get round from the SZR to the Sheraton .

It's crazy isn't it. They're trying to cram the tram into it. It is just absolute chaos.

Rosso's decent but I never go because it's in the middle of a traffic nightmare.

Good bar though .

Besix and Alstom are back on it and it's moving (the project, not trams).

Yeah, good bar, the outside sofas are lovely this time of year.

I remember when the head guy from Alstom flew in and told the RTA that he was going to rip everything out that they'd put in if they didn't get paid !

Big balls but they still didn't get paid !

I interviewed a few of their seniro contracts guys in the UK who would regularly be in Europe for HO meetings, to be sent back to UK power projects with some nasty jobs to do.

One bloke said it got to the point that he was sending these bastard terms letters to other firms PP'ing his boss so the flack went straight past him!

Tight, contractual bastards.

They are good at that aren't they. Contracts are very tricky to enforce in GCC, having just been shafted for $50k, I know.

These guys were ****ing ruthless. The controls that the HO in Europe (Is it Switzerland or Austria? Somewhere like that, I forget) put in place are just brutal.

Still, they're successful at what they do and I don't believe for a minute that big businesses got to where they are by being generous 1005 of the time.
