Caramel is one of the most superb venues in Dubai. Impeccable food, great music, excellent crowd- definitely one of a kind in the middle east.

I was here on Friday evening after not visiting Caramel in about 1 year. It wasn't very busy outside or in the bar area at 10:30 when we arrived. The restaurant looked full and the majority of the patrons were local and Saudi men. We had some snacks including the mini burger Sliders. Very good indeed. The food seems to remain consistently good here and is perfect bar snack type food.

What I found odd was that they had a young guy managing the guest list to the entrance to the outdoor area. We were joining a big group and he stopped us for questioning. The outside was empty except for 2 tables. It's a bit ridiculous but I suppose he's just doing as he was told. I'm not sure but I think Caramel has a much better vibe during the weekdays as you get the after work DIFC crowd. The crown on Friday was not appealing.

Absolutely loved this restaurant, loved the background music, the dim lighting, just up our street. The portion sizes where massive, we had the chicken lollypops for starters (amazing) and my husband the prawns which he also fully enjoyed, we both had the Steak and Frites for main course, steak was delicious. Service was quick, and polite, we will definitely be going again!

Finally went to Caramel last night around 10:30pm for few drinks. It had quite a few people even though it was Monday night.
I was certainly impressed with customer service, especially the bartender. Drinks were good but bit pricey. But i guess everything in DIFC is expensive, so is this place. Decor is very similar to all the other bars and lounges in new Dubai, nothing special.
Overall a good experience.

Attracted by the photos of an open air lounge terrace and happy hour promotions, I went there with high hopes.

But it was a big disappointment.

First, when I arrived at 18:00 h, I leaned it would open only at 19:00, despite their own folders advertising promotions starting from 18:00.

Second, no open air terrace any more. They turned it into a gloomy looking tent. This while the evening temperatures in May were very mild.

Third, when one orders a drink of AED 39 and gets a discount of 4 dirhams on that, it can hardly be called a 'happy hour promotion'.

Fourth, several small omissions that should not be made by a place of this standard. When you have a beer, the bottle and glass should come with small blotting mats. And some nibbles would be nice also. Hard rock music from the loundspeakers does not fit a loungeplace.

But worst of all, when the bill arrived, they suddenly had added 10% to the price as a 'Authority charge'. I think no customer likes to leave with the feeling that he has been tricked into paying too much, and this is just what Caramel has done.

I will not go there again.

This trendy place Caramel Restaurant & Lounge, consisting of a lounge bar, a restaurant and lounge with a DJ. Quiet tonight because of Ramadan and the restriction of alcohol, but outside this period must be reserved primarily for a table on weekends. The first thing you notice is the little light (illumination of the sieved), then to read to forget. The tables are simple, with easy chairs but without much fuss, like covered. The kitchen is rather international merger. Servers (keynote speakers) are very hospitable and slinky skirts for girls .... we will say that it sells.
As flat, I opted for the "Steak & Frites", excellent cuts of beef sliced ​​served separately with a pepper sauce and another with balsamic vinegar, served with French fries with cheese and spices. Excellent meat, tender fried to perfection and very interesting with the mixture. Beautiful presentation of the dish.

In the end, pleasant evening, good food and hospitality.

Areas for improvement:
- A bit expensive compared to other restaurant, but you pay the "hipness" .....

I did the DIFC circuit last night; started off at Gramercy for some pre dinks then came over to Caramel for dinner then checked out Zuma bar scene. I do not know how they have them but Caramel has the best chicken wings in Dubai. If you want American style chicken wings this is the place to come, they are excellent. I also had the slider burgers which were great too. This place was pretty busy last night, you have to love the the waitress outfit, it is like being in Vegas. Definitely will be coming back to get my chicken wing on.

I think I know the menu off by heart! That's how good the food is at Caramel. A week dose of their TNT shrimps and chicken lollipops is a must and their risotto is one of the best in the city. Word of advice, save room for dessert. Between the passion fruit delight, baked alaska, creme brulee and chocolate fondant - you will have a difficult time deciding which one is your favourite!

This place has a very nice atmosphere and the interiors are pretty cool. The drinks are a bit pricey, but all and all it's a nice place to go with friends, colleagues, even your parents(if they like to drink). Never had food from this place, but that was because I only come here to drink!

Has always been one of my favorites since working in DIFC. Food is passable, but it's a nice place to wind up your day with a few drinks or a cup of coffee while enjoying the company of your colleagues

Honestly I find the food at Caramel very disappointing, especially considering the price. The lounge area is nice & the cocktails are great, but it's not my favourite place in Dubai. Not to mention service is quite slow. It's great on Tuesdays for Ladies for a little pre-drink or on Mondays for the Guys for an after work special.

I have to disagree with Dannielle, the vegetarian selection is awesome and there is plenty of choice for us herbivores on the menu. The mac and cheese is delicious, as is the vegetable risotto, The vegi sushi is lovely too. Dont get me started on the desserts!! The apple cobbler is my favourite, not far behind is the strawberry meringue. This has to me my one of my favourite bars/restaurants, and my favourite place to be on a tuesday as us ladies get 50% off all cocktails!!

Very impressed on my first visit here. Due to Ramadan, I guessed it was a little more subdued than it otherwise would be. Busy, but not crowded. "Outdoor" area is really nice, likely due to the massive air conditioning units lining the walls. Closes at 12:30 during the Holy Month.

They are doing a summer deal at the moment. Ladies get 50 percent of drinks from 7 to midnight every night. Good for beating the heat....
