Cabana is an overlooked gem. A splendid pool bar hovering in the midst of Downtown, it offers a heady combination of urban chic and chilled beachside hangout. Visit at night and you can glimpse the Burj Khalifa twinkling in the distance while lazing on a sun lounger. Sublime. Handily based in The Address Dubai Mall, the bar’s menu lives up to the hotel’s abundant elegance. The main meat and fish dishes are well worth the heavy price tag. With quality ingredients cooked to perfection and presented with flair, this is almost restaurant quality. The cheaper bar bites retain the high standard and coupled with the idyllic location, Cabana could cater for everything from a midweek drink with mates to a low-key first date. Our only complaint is that on our last visit the staff were disappointingly snotty, but otherwise this place can’t be faulted for either its food or vibe.
Open Sat-Wed 9am-midnight; Fri-Sat 9am-1am. The Address Dubai Mall, Downtown Dubai, www.theaddress.com (04 888 3444).

Nice setting with a chilled out feel.
The quality of the food was excellent, but the choice was poor. Prawns, chicken, roasted veg and shwarmas but the trays were often empty and not a lot of food was prepared when we first arrived.
Drinks choice was limited - wine option was chardonny, two types of cocktails and beer. We couldn't understand the cocktails and on the menu they were all the same price but they said we only had the choice of two. The drinks weren't particularly free flowing, not a problem and we are comparing it to other venues where we have been where they make sure you always have a drink.
They had a dessert station offering crepes and a couple of other different desserts, which were quite tasty.
I had booked the restaurant on a 3 for 4 deal that was advertised on the website, but when I went to pay they said I had to pay for four and nobody was aware of this deal. About 20 minutes of discussions between the staff and was finally charged the 3 for 4 price.
Ok, but won't go back again.
