Many restaurants have been gradually reopening over the last few weeks. However kids under 12 and adults over the age of 60 have not been allowed in.
But new government regulations state that standalone restaurants and restaurants in hotels are now allowing children between three and 12, as well as adults over the age of 60.
Children between three and 12 and adults over 60 are still not permitted inside mall restaurants.
Since opening, restaurants have had to operate with reduced hours, limited capacity and until now have had strict rules disallowing children between three and 12.
Some of the family-friendly restaurants that are open include Tom and Serg, The Irish Village, Maison Mathis and Bystro.
Families choosing to eat out at restaurants in Dubai that are now open - and restaurants themselves that have reopened - must adhere to the UAE’s strict health and safety rules, including the requirement that masks are worn at all times and that dining time must be restricted to less than three hours.
