5 Outdoor Restaurants to Enjoy This Winter
Hooray, it’s October – part of us cannot believe that we are in the last quarter of 2018 (really, where did time fly?) and the other part of us is excited for the cooler weather and endless outdoor experiences one gets to enjoy during this magical time of the year in Dubai. So here are five of our favourite outdoor restaurants to hop, skip and jump to this winter.
The perfect place for a city escape. Located in the heart of Dubai, Azure Beach is a restaurant and lounge bar and comes highly recommended. The possibilities for good times here are endless – nestled among the heavenly white sands and shimmering blue waters of the Arabian Gulf, Azure Beach sets the scene for the time of your life. There is not much that can go wrong when the spread involves – good food, sun, sand, beach, music, and friends and unlimited fun.

Located on the waterfront in Souk Madinat – Trattoria Toscana just like the name serves an authentic Tuscan menu. Italians are known for their love of laid-back lifestyle where afternoons and weekends are spent with family and friends sharing long cosy meals over endless conversations. And this is just the spot to enjoy long lazy lunches and dinners, Italian style over the upcoming Dubai Winters.

Little Miss India
Love Indian food – we too! Located in the picturesque Fairmont The Palm, Little Miss India is the latest character led, gastronomic destination in town. This quirky concept fuses a vibrant and colonial restaurant, lounge bar to tell a personal story, allowing guests to explore the incredible quality, history and diversity of Indian cuisine. The butter chicken, naan and kebabs have an added charm when relished overlooking the Dubai Marina skyline. Just the kinda comfort food one needs this winter – don’t you agree!

This Mediterranean restaurant located at the top floor of Westin Dubai, Al Habtoor City boasts of a lavish terrace overlooking the majestic Burj Khalifa (a view that never gets old). Guests can even enjoy a whopping 50% discount everyday from 5 to 7pm on their food garden menu and shisha (sunsets never looked this attractive in Dubai). Oh, and let the view not distract you from the food – the truffle pizza and tapas menu is a must try here.

With panoramic views taking centre stage this rooftop restaurant as the name suggests is high up in the sky on 40 the floor of The H Hotel. The menu boasts of fusion Asian dishes (we can never get enough of the crispy lobster). It’s the perfect spot in town to enjoy the cooler weather accompanied by some of their delicious sundowners. Their menu boasts of some interesting choice of cocktails and mocktails which sets the perfect environment for a chill night out with friends and family.
