Sammach (The fish restaurant), Dubai…go only for the view of the Dubai Fountain. Don’t eat here

Souk Al Bahar sits on the Burj Lake overlooking the iconic Burj Khalifa, the Address Hotels, and the Dubai Mall. On the perimeter of the Souk are an assortment of restaurants, most with outdoor seating and a view of the Dubai Fountain

We had dinner in a waterfront restuarant called Sammach, The Fish restaurant, just to see The Dubai Fountain. Sammach is a Lebanese  restaurant with emphasis on seafood. I was amazed by the crowd standing around outside the restaurant waiting for the show to begin.

The food quality is terrible and the service was just a joke – attempting to order something is like trying to land a two-metre marlin. So beware: you will get charged an exorbitant price for a sub standard meal with ‘couldn’t care less’ service at Sammach!!!

Go to Sammach only if you want a good view to admire Burj Khalifa and see the fountain. Then again, buy a drink. Don’t eat there. The food’s no good and you pay an arm and a leg. In fact, the headline for this posting should be “what a rip-off!” This is certainly the true truth as I say it as it is…
