XVA Art Hotel
Vegetarian and vintage delights at a charming café

In keeping with its location in the Al Fahidi district, this boutique hotel is affiliated with one of Dubai's most prominent art galleries. In addition to its nine bedrooms, each individually decorated by a local artist or designer, the XVA Art Hotel's vegetarian Café creates art in an edible form.

Beautifully presented dishes, including inventive sandwiches like eggplant burgers with cucumber, tomato, and feta, or pumpkin roti, and salads like the tabouleh are served to an artsy mix of locals and visitors alike. Join the indie crowd in the lovely courtyard dining area, and make sure to order the fresh mint lemonade — the Café's version of the refreshing drink is not to be missed.

    After a couple of hours’ walk, you will welcome this oasis in the middle of Dubai’s historic center. The XVA Cafe has very refreshing fresh drinks and very healthy meals. For breakfast they have homemade muffins and Arabic omelet. They have fattah hummus, eggplant mutabel, roasted carrot hummus, and other familiar Arabic or Levantine cuisine. We had an excellent glass of lemon. It was very refreshing but more importantly it was imbibed under the canopy of a tree, in the shade of a courtyard, and very polite and efficient service. When you are in the area, don’t miss this cafe.

  • Relaxing hideaway among the buzz
    We went there for lunch, and had breakfast also there the next morning, and both meals were very enjoyable, and of good quality. The service was great, and were served by different staff at these different times, and there was a consistent friendliness and helpfulness from the staff. The service was comfortably quick, and the ambience combined with terrific company made this a very enjoyably experience.

  • 2 breakfasts and a dinner
    We were staying at the hotel so had breakfast there both mornings .It is vegetarian so husband was worried but we had 2very enjoyable meals . Dinner was also very good , but no meat so if you have a real meat eater won't suit. Staff very accommodating and a cooler oasis out of the searing sun in the old quarter of Dubai
