Is there any Mexican restaurants, check in the Dubai explorer. I've been to Trader Vics its excellent, top staff, top service, great food, and unreal bar, not that I spent much time at the bar

How many do you want?

Verre (Gordon Ramsey) - Hilton Dubai Creek (Deira Creekside)
Fire & Ice - Raffles (Oud Metha/Wafi)
Pachanga - Hilton Jumeirah (Marina/JBR)
Sloanes - Grosvenor Hotel (Marina)
Mezzo - Wafi (restaurant centre not mall)
Yum - Radisson SAS (Deira)
Salmontini - MoE
Smiling BKK - Al Wasl Road
Bussola - Mina Seyahi
Zheng He's - Madinat/Mina Salam
Noodle House (loads of venues across town)
Frankie's - Marina, opp Oasis Beach Hotel (going there tonight)
Shoo Fee Ma Fee - Madinat


Pachanga is Argentinian, but the only Mexican I can think off is Mama Bonitas in Umm Sequim


Just ask if you want a recommendation for a specific type of restaurant or area. We eat out a lot and the husband some times works as a freelance restaurant reviewer.

Which one? There are two - one in Madinat and another in Crown Plaza (SZR). I wonder if it has improved as the last time I was at the Madinat one the food was dreadful. Do they still have that awful band?

Funilly enough, the best Trader Vics I have been too is the one in Muscat. Even better than the Mayfair one.

He doesn't do it full time, as he has a good job, but writes odd articles upon request. I think he'd love to be paid to eat good food and drink fine wines!
