With cuisine drawn from all four corners of the globe, Dubai is fast becoming a dream destination for food lovers. Here are some of our favourite restaurants that offer incredible flavours from around the world. 

 

Mediterranean – Scape 

Elegantly unfurling like a fan, and seemingly floating above the crystal waters around the Burj Al Arab, Scape immerses you in the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera. A chic dining destination with glorious ocean vistas, Scape serves an authentic taste of the Mediterranean, from the freshest sea bass to the daintiest madeleines with strawberries and basil sorbet. Visit before sunset to toast the day with a perfectly mixed sundowner.

Japanese/Argentinian – Summersalt

In what may seem an unlikely culinary alliance, Summersalt masterfully harmonises the poise and precision of Japanese cooking with the bold, unapologetic flavours of Argentina. Think plump, corn-fed chicken breast with indulgent teriyaki truffle sauce. Framed by the shimmering shores of Madinat Jumeriah’s private beach, Summersalt presents innovative fusion dining to be savoured beneath endless azure skies.

 

Polynesian – Sugarmash

Journey to the South Pacific by way of Sugarmash, a sun-kissed restaurant bordering Jumeirah Al Naseem’s swimming pool. With its laidback Hawaiian vibe, Sugarmash is the ultimate spot to unwind over seared ahi tuna or huli huli chicken. Perhaps Sugarmash’s best-kept secret is its signature mocktails such as the tropical Future Explorer; a refreshing muddle of pineapple, ginger beer and anise-infused honey.

British – D&A

Bringing all the personality and charm of a classic English gastropub to the exotic climes of Dubai, D&A (Dhow and Anchor) showcases the best of British with a contemporary twist. D&A’s menu is a roll call of comforting favourites like wild rabbit Scotch egg, fish ‘n’ chips, steak, and of course, Britain’s adopted national dish, chicken tikka masala curry. You’ll find the award-winning D&A at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

 

Italian – Alta Badia

Explore Italian cookery beyond the classic flavours, with the rich, rustic dishes of the Dolomite Alta Badia ski region. Here, traditional Ladin cuisine is inspired by age-old recipes and rooted in seasonality. Explore with a dégustation menu or sample à la carte dishes, from pistachio-crusted scallops to beef cheek tortelli with parmesan and black truffle. And don’t miss desserts bursting with the flavours of the mountains, including rosemary ice cream and raspberry sorbet.

 

Latin American – La Parilla

La Parilla unites a fiesta of flavours from across Peru, Argentina and Mexico. Hearty, grill-sizzled prime cuts, crisp, generously stuffed tortillas, and salads enlivened with feisty chimichurri, delivering flavours that dance across your palate. The carnival doesn’t stop on the plate at La Parilla. Vivacious live music accompanies your meal, as you gaze out at Burj Al Arab from the 25th floor of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
