Dubai Dining

Dining in Dubai, from Michelin star luxury to al fresco bites, you will find a world of flavours vies for your taste buds

The many Dubai restaurants and cafés mirror the melting pot of different cultures and nationalities that make up the city. Most of the more popular Dubai restaurants are in hotels, and you should be aware that these are usually the only establishments with alcohol licences.

That said, there are plenty of exceptional independent restaurants in Dubai. Cheapest are those venues which offer tasty fare from the Indian subcontinent. Costs can creep up significantly for more specialised international cuisine, although dining in Dubai is normally good value. The one major exception is alcohol, which bumps up the bill significantly.

Celebrity chefs such as Gordon Ramsay and Marco Pierre White have opened restaurants in Dubai. With leading Dubai restaurants such as these, you’ll always need to book beforehand.

Finally, for dining with a difference, it is well worth enjoying a dinner cruise on a traditional wooden dhow on the Creek.
