Overview
More
"Alexandra" is a 90 Foot Traditional Arabic 'Dhow' that has been refurbished into a quality floating restaurant. Alexandra is not purely a restaurant, its more of a holistic experience. The first component of the experience is the cruising through Dubai Marina and in the lagoon created by the palm Island. Seeing 'new Dubai' from the water really puts things in perspective in a way that a walk or a drive doesn't. A second component that makes Alexandra a bit different is the live entertainment we have onboard in the form of a 'Tanura' show - something that is different to what is normally offered onshore. Lastly, we try our best to keep a very diverse menu with no corners cut on the catering. Our menu has 1 beef dish, 1 fish dish, 1 chicken dish, 4 sides, 5 salads and 5 kinds of desert as well as a clear seafood soup. We hope this to satisfy any foodies that may stumble into our venue.

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
