A scenic new healthy Lebanese spot at Souk Al Bahar
Time Out Dubai staff
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
It has an incredible location in a modern Middle Eastern-esque, jaw dropping setting overlooking the romantic Dubai Fountain which has atmospheric water performances every 30min (It’s Time To Say Goodbye will occasionally belt out in the background as couples promenade along the waterways), and depending on where you are seated or if you crane your neck a little, you get a view of the Burj Khalifa as the waft of flavoured shisha goes through the air. Choose from the homely inside area or outside seating area, and children are most welcome. Prices are somewhat inflated because of the location, but not unaffordable. Most dishes are done surprisingly well for a touristy spot, service is fast and friendly, but you don’t feel like you are being rushed. We’d not recommend the rice wrapped vine leaves, as they’re overly bitter and mushy but the melt-in-the-mouth cheese sticks will keep you coming back.
