    My husband and I had been looking forward to going and booked a table from 9pm-12am for dinner. The hostess that sat us could not of been more unhelpful if she tried! We asked if possible to move tables as we were wedged between 2 tables of 8 people, and the place was very quiet. She said no we would have to go and ask ourselves - no idea why she couldn't be bothered to do this for us....

    Rest of the staff were lovely and food was OK. we only saw 2 acts the whole evening. When we asked about lack of entertainment we were told the acts choose when they come on??!! Then we were told it was normal!! Not what we expected.

    The highlight for us was at 11.15pm when all the staff seemed to frantically get ready for midnight with the switch over of tables. Big ice buckets started coming out and were being placed at the base of all tables and some tables that had people sitting at we're actually being dressed ready for midnight! The management need to seriously think about their offer. If you want people to come for dinner allow them to sit and enjoy for the time allotted and put some acts on. If the handover of tables is too tight for you and your team, change the timings.

    The icing on the cake was when a group of 10 people were seated next to us at 11.15pm and the table was way too small for them so they were all standing leaning on our table while we were trying to eat our main course. Truly not their fault but the lack of common sense coming for the hostess/management. They were soon moved on but why did you put them there in the first place!

    My advice would be to go there at midnight onwards. Total waste of time to go before as you are made to feel very unwelcome for the last 30 minutes. You also may actually get to see some acts. Lots to be desired.....

    Maybe I have been to too many good places with takes on the concept of dinner, show and club to appreciate this here in Dubai. The show is very sparse in appearance maybe 15min in total from when restaurant opens to night club closes. Destino Ibiza runs a show for 4hrs in comparison. Quality of the show makes the whole thing seem cheap but dressed up well. I can appreciate the effort. Certainly people behind it have tried, the setting is great, service of waiters and bar staff is great. Security is too much and way to present. Whoever produces the show should go somewhere a little more provincial where it takes less to impress. I wasnt.
