With a choice of dining indoors in the spacious lobby or on the terrace with beautiful views of the hotel grounds, afternoon tea at The Ritz feels like a treat. Service is friendly and informative, with staff giving a comprehensive rundown of the tea menu and three-tiered platters daintily filled with fresh scones and clotted cream, mini wraps and sandwiches. A platter is provided per person with an average number of sweet and savoury choices. If you’re really hungry, you’ll be pleased to hear that the platters are cheerfully refreshed, along with generous refills of your choice of tea or coffee. There’s also the choice of a Devonshire afternoon tea, which comes with two homemade scones, Devonshire clotted cream, preserves and, of course, a choice of tea.
Dhs70 per person for Devonshire afternoon tea, Dhs135 for traditional afternoon tea, Dhs245 (with glass of bubbly). Served daily 2pm-6pm. Ritz-Carlton Dubai, The Walk, JBR (04 399 4000).
