The decor and ambiance is lovely. The selection of bread is tasty along with the truffle pasta and lobster spaghetti. Our server was friendly and helped us try Greek liquor for the first time. Quite expensive but worth it.

By far one of the best restaurants in Dubai. Everything from food to service to atmosphere was incredible.. The must try dishes are the wood baked shrimp, Greek salad, baked feta, lobster pasta, and baked potatoes with truffle. Finally top it off with a frozen Greek yogurt. By far the best experience and dinner in dubai.

The famous Gaia is located in the DIFC. Beautiful interior design.nThe menu is mediterranen -Greek specialities, from vegetarian dishes, meat and fish. A large selection of Mocktails and cocktails in addition to a good selection of wines in the wine list.nThe service staff is friendly and competent. A reservation is required, at least 3 days in advance.

if you're looking for a restaurant where you can take pictures to post on instagram, you've come to the right place.nIf you love food and want to eat something good, change places.nThe main problem is that the menu has very little variety, I tried the octopus and it was good but otherwise everything is substandard. Even the dessert failed. Context not in line with the proposed prices.nContext cozy, well furnished and very spacious tables for two people, in short, everything good except the main thing, the food.

I have never eaten this tasty even in Greece! GAIA restaurant is just gorgeous! From the simplest tzatziki to garides saganaki (tiger prawns) the food is on top of the world best restaurants. Would not recommend any specific dish because you have to try everything! The wine list is one of the best in the city. The personnel is so well trained and attentive that you just relax and enjoy the delicious meal and the atmosphere. The visiting audience are also well prepared;) being dressed as to some royal ball.

Elegant decor and ambiance. Mediterranean cuisine with Greek emphasis. The food is delicious in general. You may still go wrong with some dishes but the overall experience is great.

One of the liveliest places I've been to in recent memory which also happened to have some of the best service and best food. Packed to the gills on a Friday night, the staff didn't put a single foot wrong the whole time. I was thoroughly impressed. The food is nothing to scoff at eitheru2013 every dish we had was cooked to perfection but I have a special soft spot for the Seafood Orzo. It also happened to be my wife's birthday and the staff, once again, went out of their way to make the whole dinner even more special. The ambience needs special mention because I love how it differs from the dark look most modern restaurants seem to default to.nnGaia is an easy recommendation and will definitely be a place I visit every time I'm in the city.

I had high hopes for this restaurant.. really thought I would love it but unfortunately I was really disappointed for couple of reasons.nThe host had an attitude, lacked common courtesy and was not hospitable as one would expect.nConsidering the large bill we paid, the food was overrated and below average.nProbably the only good experience was with the waiter assigned to our table, he was sweet and helpful.

Came here on a Saturday night for some signature dishes and drinks.. and it was still bustling! Resos recommended. Food was great, but also rather expensive (worth it though). Staff were very nice.
