Malecon

Latin American

  • Malecon
You’d be hard pressed to find a place in Dubai with more character and charm than this funky beachside spot. There is a revolutionary vibe with graffiti scrawled on walls, grungy seating and rocking live bands and DJs. It all seems very ‘un-Dubai’, and the change is welcome. If the food wasn’t up to scratch, however, the crowds that regularly drop into Malecon wouldn’t stop by. Thankfully a menu crammed with Latin classics puts more celebrated restaurants to shame. A pan-roasted duck comes with a sweet potato salsa and a creamy mushroom sauce to produce an interesting blend of flavours. We’re also big fans of the saffron jumbo shrimps, served with seafood risotto and a mango papaya relish. Desserts have a similarly fun Cuban feel, with our favourite being a chocolate mousse filled cigar served with mango sorbet in a sweet ashtray. Come along on one of the many salsa nights and you’ll find the closest Dubai has to authentic Latin entertainment. Malecon

    I have been visiting this restaurant for at least 5 years. Unfortunately my last visit on February 2013 was disappointing. I was sold on the idea of buying a seafood platter for 2, at 450 Dhs ($123). The "platter had 1 lobster, 10 calamari rings, 1 prawn and 1 piece of salmon...in addition to maybe $2 worth of french fries. When I complained, AS A FAVOR they gave me one more prawn. I used to love this place, but it is now overrated.
