Wife was in Buddha Bar with friends last night and thought it was outstanding.
My current favourite is Nobu.

There's a hotel at the Barnasti end of the marina (before you cross the bridge heading for Barnasti), which has an outdoor restaurant, with tables and alcoves covered by canopies. Can't remember the hotel name or the menu, except that I had excellent mezze there, and it was quiet, relaxing and authentic.

Overrated, expensive and bad service is my judgment.. :thumb down:

Al Hambra in Madinat Jumeirah is one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai. Tapas to die for..

The Meridien next to the Habtoor Grand has a really nice outdoor terrace bar / restaurant. Think it's Mexican and it's bloody lovely.

It's called Maya - Maya
