Bayt Al Wakeel

MENA

  • Bayt Al Wakeel
As locations go, Bayt Al Wakeel takes some beating. Situated just around the corner from Textile Souk, and jutting out into the creek on stilts, diners here are treated to picture perfect view of Dubai as abras cross the water and larger ships cruise past. At night, this view is particularly impressive, with the boats’ lights twinkling in the water. Dining al fresco, therefore, is a popular option, but don’t worry too much if you have to dine inside amid the historical building with large wooden doors. Due to its creekside location, Bayt Al Wakeel is popular with weary tourists, and often gets busy. The staff are often rushed off their feet, which will give you more time to admire the view. The menu is simple and fuss-free, with plenty of grilled meat and fish plus hot and cold mezze on offer. While nothing really stands out, this restaurant is more about the setting. Bayt Al Wakeel

    It's in a nice spot but has become a lazy tourist rip off on the water. It is over priced for what it is, and has truly terrible service. I can only imagine that the positive reviews on here are either friends or employees of the restaurant, or haven't been there for a number of years.

    Went there without reservations and even tough there were a lot of free tables we had to wait around 30 minutes for them to sit us. The waiters are very moody and they basically just throw the dishes at you. The food wasn't the best and they didn't have falafel. Another tourist trap in the city.
