Time Out Says

If you love super-fresh seafood as much as you love a bargain, then put Bu Qtair in your notebook. The words “Dubai institution” get bandied around all too frequently, however when it comes to Bu Qtair (and several others in this section), they’re entirely accurate.

A former winner of our Best Budget Restaurant category, this seafood shack started off in a makeshift building in Umm Suqeim, selling only the catch of the day.

It’s since expanded to a much larger building – complete with both indoor and outdoor seating – but it still serves up that top-quality seafood you’ve come to know and love. It’s not fine dining, but we neither expect nor want it to be.

Open for lunch and dinner, head over to this laid-back restaurant and you’ll find fuss-free dishes. Order up the catch of the day – usually the choice of prawns and whatever fish they’ve got – fried up with fresh spices. It’s served with rice and roti and it’s super-tasty.

For casual, seaside grub you can’t get much better than this. Simple, fresh and delicious. Don’t miss it.
