Dubai is an amazing place and somewhere we return to again and again. There are so many things that attract us to this city, including the ridiculously high standards of the restaurants – including the food and service – as well as the gorgeous weather and of course the feeling of opulence which so many of us seek out when on vacation.
We tend to eat out as much as possible when we are in Dubai and split our time between returning to some of our favourites places as well as experiencing new places to dine out together. There are always new restaurants popping up featuring cuisines from all over the world and it is something that keeps us coming back again and again.
So which are our favourite restaurants, I hear you ask? Keep reading to find out…
Located in Dubai Marina at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa, Zengo offers this most decadent sushi and Asian inspired cuisine you could ever wish for. The views of the city and landscape are stunning and although we generally prefer to dine outside there, we have been known to eat indoors at Zengo too. There’s a resident DJ in place until 2am if you fancy parting the night away and the cocktails are sublime! Just make sure you book ahead through this website as it is a popular place…
This beautiful spot at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam resort is Chinese cuisine at its best – headed up by the infamous chef Lai Min Wei. Zheng He’s has a contemporary and airy feel to it and offers. among other things, a seven course tasting menu including perfect peking duck. The Emperor’s Express Menu is great value to do, served at lunch and all round, this is an absolute gem.
Pierre’s Bistro & Bar
Would you like to try some Michelin star dining? Then Pierre’s Bistro & Bar is the place for you. There are plenty of fun touches to the decor of this place but really it it all about the food. There are pasta plates galore as well as sublime sea food and so much more! Make sure you leave room for pudding too as it really is divine.
Irish Village – Studio One Hotel
I had to include the Irish Village in this post, because, surprise surprise, I was born in Dublin and lived the first half of my life on the Emerald Isle. The Irish Village offers some fabulous hearty Irish foods from traditional stew to cottage pie and more. All enjoyed with some traditional Irish music as well as decor and props to boot!
Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen Dubai
This is a theatrical dining experience to the max, located on the ground floor at Ceasars Palace Bluewaters. Try the ‘Hellicious Brunch’ and finger-licking food from salads, soups, sandwiches and pizzas for lunch to an enticing a la carte menu. The HK grand shellfish tower for two is a show stopping centrepiece for a special meal and the Wagyu meatballs which come in a slow-roasted tomato sauce must be tried!
