Dubai, 21 October 2020: Jumeirah Group is delighted to announce that Shimmers, its stunning beachside dining experience, is now welcoming guests with an enhanced menu of delicious Mediterranean delicacies and award-winning beverages.

Set against the backdrop of spectacular Burj Al Arab Jumeirah views and nestled on the beachfront at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam, Shimmers offers the ultimate in casual alfresco dining and the ideal spot to enjoy the refreshingly cooler weather. Whether relaxing over a late weekend lunch or catching up with loved ones over dinner, guests can soak up the peaceful atmosphere and lose themselves in the sound of waves lapping against the shore while enjoying a delicious menu of authentic Mediterranean cuisine.

At the helm of Shimmers is Chef Roberto Rispoli, a pioneering chef who has made his mark on some of the world’s most celebrated Mediterranean restaurants. He was also involved in the launch of SAL, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah’s striking new mirrored pop-up and Dubai’s culinary hotspot of late summertime which is headed by Chef Marco Garfagnini. Having spent more than two decades cultivating his talent in restaurants in Paris, London, New York and Cleveland, Chef Marco draws inspiration from his coastal Tuscan roots; with passion, tradition and simplicity the main ingredients of his dishes.

Chef Roberto has drawn on his experience at renowned Michelin-starred restaurants Il Carpaccio and Mavrommatis to create an enhanced menu of truly inventive Greek-inspired dishes, with options for sharing, featuring classic, freshly sourced ingredients such as feta cheese, green olives, lamb and octopus. To begin the experience at Shimmers, guests can choose from an array of delicious dips and pita bread including Tzatziki, Ktipiti and Eggplant Caviar before tucking into decadently light carpaccio plates such as the Sea Bass with Honey and Lemon Vinaigrette, and tantalising starters such as Crispy Fried Calamari, Roasted Saganaki Prawns and Grilled Octopus. There is also a selection of delicious seafood dishes including Roasted Sea Bass with Clams, Grilled Lobster with Spicy Tomato and Basil, and Grilled Sea Bass Butterfly. Meanwhile meat lovers can devour the restaurant’s signature Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Roasted Potato and Jus Aux Poivre, delight in the rich Orzo Risotto with Oyster Chicken, or savour classics such as Moussaka and Grilled Chicken Souvlaki. To end the experience, guests can enjoy a variety of tempting desserts, including the signature Chocolate Soufflé, Pineapple Dream – a whole roasted pineapple with coconut and lime sorbet – and Greek Yoghurt Ice Cream with Caramelized Walnut and Honey.

The restaurant will welcome guests from 5:00 pm to 1:00 am, with the last order for food at 10:30 pm and 12:00 am for beverages. Reservations can be made through or by contacting or +971 4 432 32 32.
