Jumeirah Restaurant Week

It’s essentially the biggest, boldest and frankly poshest buffet ever created, only it’s spread out over 40 of the UAE’s best and most celebrated restaurants and is served for eight straight days. And there’ll be no queues forming by the carving station.

Yes, Jumeirah Restaurant Week is back, offering exclusive dining experiences in its signature eateries tailored to suit every palate and every budget.

Starting on Thursday, October 5 and running through to Friday, October 13, it represents an unrivalled opportunity to sample all of those restaurants and dishes you’ve been promising yourself all year – twice, if you want to.

It’s all very simple. All of the participating restaurants are split into four price points – AED95, AED150, AED200 and AED350 – and for one fixed price you get to dine from a specially curated three-course menu between 7pm-11pm for the duration of the event. Although, be warned, you’ll need to book to ensure you grab a table. They go fast.

Here are some of the restaurants we think you should definitely try.
