Tourists going to the Creek might see brightly lit old-school designed dhows lining the pier, but one sleek boat stands out from the rest: the Bateaux Dubai. The floating restaurant is understated but serves up excellent food across a range of contemporary and international cuisines, and does it in style. Designed with glass walls and ceilings, and a classy interior, diners get a view of the Creek not often seen while they go through a well prepared four-course meal – canapés, a starter, main course and dessert. Service is impeccable, with staff members more akin to those in a five-star hotel than a cruise boat on the Creek. Dinner cruises depart at 8.30pm and last two and a half hours. Bateaux Dubai is a treat – serve it up on special occasions and see Dubai in a different light.
Open daily 8.30pm-11pm daily, boarding starts 7.45pm. Al Seef Road, opposite the British Embassy, www.jaresortshotels.com (04 315 4777).
