Dubai is a fantastic city with plenty to offer tourists. In terms of cuisine it’s like any other major city in that you can find cuisine from nearly every nationality fairly easily. Where it differs, however, is that this can often be done from the luxury of a 50 floor skyscraper or alternatively at the marina both offering unrivalled views which are hard to beat anywhere.
For when the belly rumbles
For seafood lovers make sure to check out Pierchic — winner of several awards this isolated restaurant at the end of a pier offers unrivalled views across the azure Gulf as well as some of the best seafood in all of Dubai.
If you fancy a spot of Indian cuisine, then one of the best Indian restaurants in Dubai is Asha’s and is certainly the place for good quality grub. The kebabs are tender and juicy, worth every dirham.
Anyone who’s looking for a romantic dinner date should check out Majlis Al Bahar. Based on Burj Al Arab’s private beach, the restaurant is a simple setup of candlelit table on the sand offering you awe-inspiring views across both the coast and the city.
For something a bit different why not head to Nobu. The restaurant offers modern Japanese cuisine with Arabic influences. You’ll find a sushi bar hidden away as well as various private dining areas.
When you have the thirst
If you’re looking for cool bar with views then 360° bar is for you. As the name suggests this quirky bar offers panoramic views of the Dubai skyline, set amid the luxury of the Jumeirah Beach hotel. The cocktails are fantastic, and there’s also shisha on the balcony. Make sure to get your name on the guest list as this place packs out!

Dubai is no stranger to glitz, of course, and to fall in with the trendsetters and disciples of cool, try the Cavalli Club owned by world renowned fashion designer Roberto Cavalli.
