You might forget about Flooka amid the many new restaurants fighting for your fish-cravings in Dubai. But you shouldn't, as this Jumeirah 1 restaurant has stood the test of time and won: its scenic beachside terrace and large indoor space still attract a lot of local, largely Arabic, punters year-round. Decor is modish but traditional: seafaring paraphernalia hangs on the walls, but the predominance of wood lends a contemporary touch. Service is friendly if a little slow, and the dining options are Arabic-leaning and a little oily, but not unpleasantly so. We recommend booking later in the evening, as this is when regulars tend to roll up, as well as booking a table outside if possible – the AC inside can be a little chilly.
Open Sun-Thu noon-3.30pm, 7.30pm-11.45pm; Fri-Sat 12.30pm-11.45pm. Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa, Jumeirah, www.dxbmarine.com (04 346 1111)
