From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
We can’t quite make our minds up about BiCE Mare – as with all the restaurants in the Souk al Bahar area, the venue is fantastic – especially the outdoor terrace overlooking the fountains – and the interior is quintessentially (think crisp white table clothes, black and white photos adorning the walls, glinting glassware) Italian. Where the restaurant does sometimes stumble is in its service (the staff have the best intentions, but can suffer from ADD) and the inconsistency of dishes – some are sublime, others are wholly forgettable. Our tip is to avoid Italian ‘classics’ – pizzas and pasta – and sample the seafood (a given, really, considering the restaurant’s name). The signature seafood linguine comes packed with fresh mussels, prawns and clams – highly recommended. The restaurant also does an a la carte seafood brunch on a Friday which as an antidote to Dubai’s manic obsession with ‘more is more’ style affairs, offers a little relief in the weekend scene.
