Tips for top restaurants in Dubai – luxury and cheap
When I was choosing luxury restaurants, I avoided the most expensive one. I have made a selection of restaurants not only according to meals, but also based on the location and atmosphere. So you should understand the naming „luxury restaurants“ rather like a tip for a top restaurants in Dubai, where you can have a nice romantic evening. At the same time, I picked out from hotels, so you can have a glass of wine in these restaurants as well.
If you want to combine good food, drinks and atmosphere + amazing view, I recommend to go through tips for Dubai rooftop bars. I have described some top bars, which offer very good cuisine. And some top hotels in Dubai.
On the contrary, in cheap restaurants in Dubai, I avoided the cheapest bistros and I focused on quality food for reasonable price. This is ideal choice for example for a lunch.
Top Restaurants in Dubai – our choice
Little Miss India – hotel Fairmont, Indian restaurant
Indian restaurant on the palm island of Fairmont the Palm hotel – here you can stop for a meal, for example when you are leaving the Atlantis Aquapark.
Little Miss India has authentic Indian cuisine, dishes from 80 AED, water for 14 AED, beer 55 AED. Since you are at the hotel, you can buy an alcohol too. It is the stylish restaurant with beautiful surroundings and vegetarian food as well.
If you are interested in cheap Indian restaurants, I recommend you to visit Deira in Dubai.
Quattro Passi – hotel Five Palm, Jumeirah – Italian restaurant
In the beginning of the palm island there is a Five Palm Hotel. I suggest you in there the Quattro Passi restaurant. It is offering an Italian cuisine, seafood, excellent desserts and nice surrounding.
Lunch menu with wine cost 160 AED, main meals around 150 AED, non-alcoholic drinks 23 AED.
They offer also „special“ which is very interesting. It includes lunch + massage (45 minutes) for 399 AED or dinner + massage for 499 AED.
Armani – hotel Armani in Burj Khalifa – 3 great Dubai restaurants
Hotel Armani has several restaurants, all of which are very good. The Armani Ristorante is a great Italian/Mediterranean restaurant. Armani Amal is Indian/Asian restaurant.
Armani Mediterraneo is my favorite one. It has a big evening buffet tables, where you can sit for whole evening and enjoy delicious food and drinks. Here you can find seafood and all kinds of meat. I think, that probably everyone will choose. I recommend you to book the place on terrace. You will have a direct view on dancing fountains and beautiful skyscrapers. You need to book it, either in person or on the web site.
Prices for a dinner: 280 AED with non-alcoholic drinks or 380 AED with alcohol ones.
Cheap and good restaurants in Dubai
Fish Hut Seafood Restaurant – Al Barsha – Dubai fish restaurant
A fish restaurant in which you can choose which kind of fish do you want to eat and the cook will prepare it to you. There is also a wide selection of shrimps and salads.
I suspect, that Fish Hunt has three restaurants in Dubai and it is always a good choice.
Al Barsha is also very pleasant and simple restaurant with a lot of people at lunch time here.
You can try great food from 20 AED. There are also very cheap and excellent puddles and humus.
Operation: Falafel – Jumeirah beach residence – Lebanese restaurant
Great Lebanese food, shawarma, falafel, salads, humus, sweet dishes, soups and a lot of more.
Good meals cost around 20-30 AED, but there are also cheaper meals and tasty sandwiches.
