Celebrate togetherness and compassion with your loved ones this Ramadan over an iftar feast. Break your fast with meals in our signature restaurants and cafes which offer special menus and dishes during the holy month. Here are our top picks.

Majlis at Terrace Between the Towers

Tuck into festive delights with the soothing harmonies of an oud performer in our first majlis, a grand pop-up tent in which you can book a private iftar feast with your loved ones. Enjoy an evening under the stars on the terrace at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, which overlooks Dubai’s glittering skyline. Our daily menu features traditional Emirati dishes ranging from rice-based classics such as goat ouzi and seafood favourites such as samak harra to a selection of stuffed dates and Ramadan drinks including jallab and tamarind-based tamer Hindi. Cap off the evening at a live station serving luqaimat, warm fried balls of dough drizzled with date syrup and sesame seeds.


Time: From sundown till 20:30 | AED 275 per person

Dinner by the sea

To celebrate the spirit of Ramadan, reflect on the holy month and spend time with loved ones, book a private iftar meal on the beach at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. Dine on traditional dishes and themed drinks under a gazebo, which can accommodate up to four guests, or enjoy your feast with up to seven people right on the sand with a private butler. Feeling the warm ocean breeze and hearing gentle waves in the background make this festive meal extra special.


Time: From sundown till 20:00 | AED 345 per adult; AED 175 per child

 

Authentic Lebanese dining

One of Dubai’s most popular Lebanese restaurants, Al Nafoorah, is now welcoming guests at its new outlet in Jumeirah Al Qasr. Designed to transport you to the midst of Beirut, the tables are set around a charming olive tree. Head chef Ali Fouad has curated an iftar set menu to celebrate the spirit of Ramadan. You can enjoy cold mezze such as salad with toasted pita, and tabouleh, a trademark Lebanese salad made with parsley and bulgar wheat. Warm mezze plates include shish barak, kibbeh bi laban and maklouba chicken – a rice dish made with roasted aubergine and cauliflower that is flipped upside down before serving.

Time: From sundown till 20:00 | AED 285 per person; AED 365 per person with shisha

Featuring a live station serving lamb ouzi and fish sayadieh, you will also find perfectly grilled meat and a selection of Ramadan desserts.

Authentic set menus feature a roasted red pepper dip and hot mezze such as falafels and tender crescent-shaped meat pies, followed by main dishes of grilled meat, seafood or chicken shawarma. You won’t want to miss umm Ali, a hot bread pudding flavoured with dates and nuts, or mouhalabieh, a delicate milk-based flan.
