The table wasn’t laid when we arrived, they didn’t have a table ready for us when we arrived and we were placed on a table for 6 people when there was only 2 of us. We asked for outdoor seating ahead of time and they didn’t fulfill this. The service was poor, we asked for a sweet cocktail and the waiter pulls his phone out and Google’s sweet cocktails in front of us! I was under the impression for a nice restaurant they would be able to think of a few cocktails. The food was fine but nothing outstanding and I thought it was incredibly expensive for the service we received. I wouldn’t go back there again or recommend it

Der Abend war perfekt für uns. Wir hatten ein sehr gutes Essen. Auch das Personal war sehr kompetent und hatten ein einwandfreies hygienische Verhalten.
Lediglich der Restaurantleiter nahm es mit dem Mund Nasenschutz nicht so genau schade.

The service and views were fantastic. However the food was extremely disappointing! I ordered a salad for a starter, which was basically a bowl of lettuce leaves, no sweet potato as stated in the menu and only one piece of avocado. My husband ordered the ribeye steak, which was so fatty and chewy and he actually said it was the worse steak he’s had in his life.

It’s the location you go for here - outdoor seating to see the Fountain Show with a first class view. Food is good but a little on expensive side. This is for a Treat Night. Service great. It’s mainly fish so make sure you like

Excellent food. Lots of clients come to see the fountains from this magnificient terrace, but believe me: the real spectacle is on your dishes. Pay attention to it. Then, later, the Fountains.

Le BiCE Mare est remarquablement bien placé pour assister aux spectacles de fontaines du Burj Khalifa.
La cuisine est de qualité. Le poisson du jour du nous avons choisi était excellant.
Le prix est peut-être 10 à 15 % plus élevé. Mais c'est prix pour avoir La meilleure vue sur le Fontain Show Dubaï.

Abbiamo cenato in terrazza che guarda sulle DUBAI fountains: atmosfera molto bella, io ho preso un polpo di antipasto ma non era un granché , coperto di pan grattato, poco gusto e secco. La calamitata invece buonissima. Bevuto 1 bicchiere di vino e acqua. Speso 153€

We were traveling through Dubai and wanted a nice meal and a view of the fountain show. The food and wine were delicious and the staff was attentive. They honored my request for a table with an excellent view. We saw the show 3 times during our meal. It was exactly the experience we were hoping for!

Third visit to the restaurant, waiters were disappointing from start to finish they paid no real attention to our table during our meal. Meet and great and bar staff were welcoming, waiters unfortunately were not in the same place.

Disappointing visiting this time.
