We were invited for dinner at Madeleine Cafe and Boulangerie to try out their Weekly Specials and we were surprised that they reserved us a seat at the corner of their terrace to watch the Dubai Fountain Show. This was a special treat considering we had a clear view of the Burj Khalifa Lake below.
The restaurant brings back items that have been offered in the past to spice up the menu and to have something fresh to showcase to their patrons. These specials are posted on their menu board and include a 3-course set.

Beautiful Dubai Fountain View at Madeleine Café Terrace
Both times we ate at Madeleine, we sat inside. This time was different as we had a table in a corner of their terrace which is one of the best seats in the house. You get an clear view of the water fountain show on the Burj Khalifa lake. Arriving at 7 pm, one of the shows has already started. Not to worry as a different song with an orchestrated fountain display comes up every 30 minutes.

Dubai Water Fountain
The Dubai Water Fountain is the largest choreographed fountain system in the world. It is one of the amazing and FREE tourist attractions in Dubai where you can take your family and friends who are visiting this Emirate. It has daily evening shows that start at 6pm to 11pm, lasts for about 5 minutes, and plays a different song/display every 30 minutes.
We spent hours enjoying dinner and watching the beautiful fountain display. What a nice spot it was and we couldn’t be any more thankful that they reserved us a table with this view.
The fountain show!
Great attraction for families and friends
It was a pleasant dinner experience as we enjoyed the food and the water fountain below. We spent more than 2 hours admiring the view and the beautiful evening.
