Finally, the weather is becoming bearable. Once October arrives and the humidity drops, it’s time to get outside, eat al fresco and go for a constitutional stroll. Where, we wondered, can you do all three? The answer is in one of the most pedestrian-friendly restaurant hotspots in Dubai: it’s time to walk The Walk at JBR.

This area of New Dubai houses a plethora of restaurant and café options, spanning numerous cuisines, on a single road. And with all the tables and chairs littering the pavements, not to mention glittering view of the sea (if it isn’t blocked by the construction for the new mall), this place is positively continental.

While the first thing to hit you on The Walk may be the oodles of noodle shops, fast-food fixes and bland chains, we’ve scoured the area for places with unique character and charm (with a few healthier options for good measure). We’ve walked The Walk so you know where to find them.
