Where to dine in Dubai with a view of the blue


Picture this: the sound of crashing waves in the background, the scent of lingering beach air around you, and a delectable feast on your table, all with a view of the waves. Here are six of our favourite Dubai beachside dining escapes.


Satisfy your seafood fix at Fish Beach Taverna


This latest addition to the beach dining scene offers fresh, fuss-free fish paired with the finest ingredients (some handpicked from Turkey), served on the white sands. With a home-cooked vibe straight from the Aegean region, relax by the sound of the waves and take in the stunning sunset over the water with the twinkling lights of Dubai Marina behind you. What's on the menu? Finely chopped sea bass, grilled calamari, tiger prawns and their speciality: wild, cold water fish from the Aegean Sea, the Black Sea and Marmara Sea.

Go beach chic at Jetty Lounge


Located right by the waterfront near the in-house jetty (from where a regular ferry runs to sister hotel One&Only The Palm Dubai), this lounge is beach chic at its best. Relaxed sofa seating and chill-out tunes set the mood for the international menu of light bites and beverages. Pull up a chair in one of the private cabanas at the water’s edge, and nibble on Middle Eastern mezze, Mexican tortilla chips, Asian teriyaki, or European quiches, while watching the sun go down.

Soak in the waves at Shimmers


Measured solely by location, Shimmers gets top marks. Add to that a hearty menu of Greek cuisine, and you’ve landed a winner. Sitting in the heart of Madinat Jumeirah’s exclusive private beach, this relaxed eatery offers views of the azure sea, white beach and the spectacular Burj Al Arab. Try their “Real” Greek Salad with Kalamata olives and feta cheese or savour slow-cooked lamb infused with oregano.

Experience Emirati hospitality at Seven Sands


Tuck into the rich spices of Arabia at Seven Sands located in the urban-beach hybrid, aptly named The Beach. Named after the seven emirates that make up the UAE, Seven Sands takes you on a whirlwind journey through the history of Emirati cuisine, with recipes passed down generations. Dip into the Shorbat Harees, a local flavoured soup cooked with wheat and veal, or taste the Thereed, a stew cooked with potatoes, pumpkin, tomatoes and marrow, dating back to Bedouin times.

Enjoy island vibes at Barasti


This beach club and restaurant at Le Meridien Mina Seyahi is a Dubai institution. The sprawling multi-layered open-air venue has a relaxed, friendly vibe, with everything from large screens showing sports to beach loungers and pool tables, to live music and DJ tunes on offer. The fish and chips here are legendary, but there are pies and curries, pizza and gourmet sandwiches as well. A barbecue brunch is available most weekends, and Barasti also hosts numerous events and concerts.

Candle light dinner at Villa Beach


Jumeirah Beach Hotel maximises its prime location right by the Burj Al Arab, with multiple beach dining venues (La Veranda offers casual Italian; Ocean Blue is a lounge with light bites, and Al Marsa specialises in tapas). But, for a gourmet dinner by candle light, waves lapping at your feet, and unbeatable views of the majestic Burj Al Arab, look no further than Villa Beach restaurant. The Mediterranean menu features light salads and seafood specialties – steamed fillet of halibut, shellfish chowder and caviar; and saucy king prawns with green asparagus.
