Fresh Mexican bites and skyline views to share with your amigos
Part modern Mexican restaurant, part hip hang-out spot for Dubai’s weekend crowd, Luchador is one cool cantina. A recent opening in the Aloft The Palm, Luchador takes prime position atop the hotel and resort, with an 11th floor open terrace that boasts incredible views of the Palm Jumeirah’s fronds, the Burj Al Arab, and back along the Gulf coastline. Attracting its fair share of hombres, Luchador also does well in the food department, with fresh, made-to-order platters of tacos, quesadillas, and a ceviche assortment packing a south of the border flavour punch. Diners are encouraged to take their time and stay on for the restaurant’s evening transformation into a Latino lounge, with an in-house band and DJ spinning Español tunes until the early hours.
Our recommendation: Their signature taco platters are a must-order, stuffed with authentic Mexican flavours and lots of guac.
