Must-try restaurants in the UAE
After living in Dubai for two years and visiting again for New Year’s Eve, Minime and Luxury have decided to bring you our list of must try restaurants in the UAE. There are so many amazing restaurants to try out in Dubai so we have just chosen a handful of our favourites whether you are looking for a romantic meal or a worldly feast there will be something for you. Dubai is the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, with the tallest building in the world and some of the most luxurious restaurants. When it comes to eating out you really are spoilt for choice!
Luxury Late Night
Nusr-Et is the perfect luxury late night meal experience in Jumeriah Beach. This steakhouse restaurant is the creation of Nusret Gökçe, a butcher and meat specialist. Meat is the main focus of the menu, with every piece of beef and lamb cooked with flair. Signature dishes include asado ribs, Nusret “spaghetti” and Nusret golden steak. If you are looking for places to dine out I recommend using SquareMeal to give you advice on restaurants in the UAE.
Best for Brunch

Located in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Splendido’s service is an elegant spot for a bit of brunch. The restaurant has an Italian culinary heart, offering a buffet-style brunch with dishes such as grilled fish, cold mezze, salads, pastas and many further options. The food here is excellent and the location is very tranquil.
For sushi at one of the best Japanese restaurants in Dubai, Akira Back is one of the best. This restaurant is at Palm Jumeirah’s W Dubai – The Palm being one of the top spots for sushi. The sushi here is fantastic and the restaurant also serves vegan sushi such as the vegan rainbow roll – plus the views here are stunning!

They serve authentic dishes with specialties such as keg kebab and eggplant stew. Relax on the outdoor terrace overlooking Dubai’s stunning Marina, and enjoy signature beverages and tasty meze in Rüya’s vibrant lounge – a modern Meyhane in Dubai, the decor here is divine.
LPM Restaurant & Bar is known as the best French restaurant in Dubai and is always busy. The restaurant has big windows and high ceilings and the bar, taking up nearly all of one wall, is a destination in its own right. The sun-soaked artichokes, lemons, olives, courgettes, tomatoes, peppers and girolles, the freshest seafood, meat and pasta: they lead everything on the menu.
