It’s essentially the biggest, boldest and frankly the poshest foodie extravaganza ever created, only it is spread out over 40 of the UAE’s best and most celebrated restaurants and is served for seven straight days.

We’re talking about Jumeirah Restaurant Week, of course, which is back for another year.

This time around, it offers diners affairs that range from special three-course menus to full on buffets.

The deal is simple and quite spectacular, actually. 

From Sunday, April 29 until Saturday, May 5, all 40 participating restaurants will be split into three price points: AED150, AED250 and AED350. This means that for a fixed price you can pick your favourite from smoky steaks to savoury burgers to moreish s’mores of goo as well as the colourful spices of Asia and the chilies of Mexico.

With so much on offer, be ready to hear and say “oh, that’s good” and “oh, I need to try that again”, more than a few times.

Table booking is essential and we recommend that you do so fast because it’s bound to fill up quick.

To help you make the most of the experience, we’ve shortlisted options from three great restaurants that we think you should definitely check out.
