Eating in Dubai

Travel to Dubai not only for its futuristic architecture, traditional souks and desert landscapes, but also for its food. Dubai’s kitchens are diverse and innovative. This list collects the city’s best places to eat.


(; The Palm, West Crescent)

It may be hard to concentrate on the food at this marina-adjacent al-fresco pavilion, with to-die-for views of the Dubai Marina skyline. Come for nibbles and cocktails in the bar or go for the full dinner experience (paella, grills, pastas). A new addition is the ultra-swish Champagne Bar. Ask about the free boat-shuttle when making reservations.

(; Al Fahidi St)

A grand old tree, white wicker chairs, turquoise benches and crimson bougainvillea create a sun-dappled refuge in the courtyard of a former pearlmerchant’s house. The menu includes Emirati specialities, including raqaq (traditional bread), chicken machboos (spicy casserole with rice) and saloona chicken (in a tomato-based stew).
