We went to Aura restaurant of Lotus Hotel Apartments and Spa at Marina to have a Christmas Eve dinner with the family.

Ambiance and Look

The weather was amazing during the time of visit so we seated outside. There’s nothing special with the restaurant look and ambiance except for the background music playing while dining and the great Marina view.

Food & Menu

Nothing’s special about the menu. The choices are limited. The only thing the boys love was the Biryani rice and for me was the bread selection and the roasted turkey.


I paid AED 85 for each person, worth it for the Marina/yacht view but not with the service and food.


Staffs are just ok. The only polite was the one who serves the turkey and the one who serves the drinks.


Honestly, it is relatively costly with the food and service we got here. But with the view that’s perfect for photo ops, it was good.
