Ramadan opening hours in Dubai for restaurants and cafés serving breakfast and lunch to non-Muslims who are not fasting
Time Out Dubai staff
This year Ramadan is expected to fall from Thursday 17 May to Saturday 16 June (although we're waiting on the final world from officials). If you are not Muslim and not fasting during this period, there are places to eat and drink during the day, but there are extra considerations to be made.
If an individual wants to eat or drink in daylight hours during Ramadan it has to be done indoors and out of sight, or in designated screened-off areas within public places.
For that reason, many restaurants in Dubai will be operating alternative hours, though some are still open during the day. Here are the details you need to know. Scroll down to see the list...
