Sammach has landed itself quite a location, with ringside seats to the spectacular Dubai Fountain. The regular water-show performances provide decent entertainment, which is probably a good thing as service can be slow here. The fresh seafood market is packed with huge, fresh-looking fish. A good option is the mixed grill, which can be modified to suit your preferences, while a nice selection of hot and cold mezze is recommended while you wait.
Open daily 11.30am-11.30pm. Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai, (04 426 7311).Other location: Jumeirah Beach Centre (04 349 4140).
