Downtown Dubai Restaurants


Me and my partner are staying in Dubai for two nights at the beginning of June 2015 as part of our honeymoon. We are staying at the Vida hotel in downtown Dubai and wanted any suggestions of good but reasonably priced restaurants to visit. We want to avoid any chains and would prefer authentic restaurants and places with a good atmosphere and lovely views.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

"I'd do perhaps Thai or something else, the Lebanese restaurants at Souq AlBahar are tourist traps, in my humble opinion. Very mediocre."

I agree although I must say I was impressed by the food quality at Al Malouf. Prices are reasonable and shisha was great too. I was completely disappointed with Abdel Wahab (horrible food and shisha) while Zahr el Laymoun was mediocre.

Hi Niki T,

That's wonderful news that you will be celebrating your honeymoon with us here at Vida, if you would like to drop me a direct note on dkingston@vida-hotels.com and I will have one of the concierge team plan some things out for you.

Best wishes,
