INDULGE YOUR TASTE BUDS THIS EID

There are numerous restaurants with outdoor terraces overlooking the bay at Dubai Festival City Mall, providing great dining options for you and your loved ones this Eid. For a taste of genuine local cuisine, try Al Fanar Restaurant & Café — a traditional restaurant serving authentic Emirati cuisine in an ambient 1960s Dubai setting. Dive into Emirati cuisine with a nourishing, rustic menu of fragrant rice dishes, grilled meats, seafood and flatbreads. Don’t skip dessert – a strong pot of Arabic coffee and luqaimat (sweet, crunchy dumplings) is a must. The waterfront promenade is also home to one of the UAE’s only two locations of the highly-acclaimed Italian restaurant Eataly. Enjoy a beautiful gourmet meal combined with elevated views of the fireworks.
