Although the mall is small compared to the other malls of Dubai, Mercato still remains one of my favorite places to go to. It size makes it extremely unique since you can always enjoy your time - it is never over crowded :) It has all kinds of shops for kids, furniture, designer brands, boutiques, music,and so on. You can also enjoy a great meal or coffee at the food court, Italian Restaurant, Starbucks, Paul and many others. To top it all of, there is a Spinneys on the ground floor for you to do your household shopping.
Mercato is one of the most convenient places to go and spend a couple of hours!
