Nominated for Best Family

Cafe Ceramique is a family-friendly eatery that serves up reasonable food along with ceramic painting activities for kids and adults in a relaxed setting. Although not extensive by any means, the menu offers up dishes that are tasty and filling, if a little too fussy in places. The chicken quesadillas are particularly good and on just the right side of spicy, as is the grilled beef, once it has been disassembled from the artistic pile on the plate. If you have little ones, then you’ll be pleased with their rather good kids menu. The service is attentive but can be slightly inefficient with certain requests. Overall, a good option for decent food in a relaxed atmosphere that’s not too hard on the pocket – the kids can run riot too and no one will bat an eyelid.
Open daily 9am-midnight. Town Centre, Jumeirah, (04 344 7331).
