Who fancies the sound of dining at Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara restaurant in Burj Al Arab or how about having an all-night brunch across 14 Madinat Jumeirah restaurants? We’re jumping for joy as one of our favourite times of year is back and for eight whole lick-lipping days Jumeirah open the doors to a wide variety of restaurants for us to try, all at bargain prices!

With 3 course set menus starting from just AED95, temptation runs high as the 40 odd restaurants and bars that participate in Jumeirah Restaurant Week offer a brilliant way to savour some luxury, showcasing some of their most popular dishes.


You’re advised to secure reservations early though, as year on year this proves to be a popular time to take a well-earned break from the kitchen! From a casual family meal to date night inspiration, many mums will be booking up early again, and it’s especially impressive for visitors in town!

Some of Dubai’s finest restaurants and bars participate; so if you’re looking for an unmistakably romantic setting for that special night out, Pier Chic offers amazing seafood dishes and a 3-course menu for AED350 per head. For pre-dinner drinks, Bahri Bar offers cocktails at AED40 (along with its unrivalled views of the Burj Al Arab to boot) and you’ll be hard pushed to choose where to book amongst the list of firm family favourites like Zheng-He’s and Plaj, who all offer 3 courses for AED150 for adults with children ordering from the Kids Men.3-course menus for renowned steaks and seafood at La Parrilla, Rib Room, Pai Thai and Scape in Burj Al Arab are AED200 per person and if that’s not enough, Jumeirah Restaurant Week kicks off with a HUGE event to mark its launch! Called Madinat Jumeirah’s Big Bite Out, it starts on Thursday October 5th from 7pm to 11pm, where adults only can eat in some of Dubai’s favourite resorts including Jumeirah Al Qasr, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and Jumeirah Al Naseem hotels

Meet at one of the Madinat’s bars of your choice and head to whichever restaurant takes your fancy to create your own culinary adventure, dining on bite-sized tasters and amazing cocktails for a night to remember. You’ll be given a map of the venues taking part and will be urged to visit as many of them as possible! There will be live performances and prizes at the restaurants and it promises to be lots of fun – all for only AED395 per person!
