Eid Dining Guide: Family-friendly venues in Dubai
The best places for family celebrations this Eid.
The best places for family celebrations this Eid. 1. Café ceramique: Located in Town Centre, Jumeirah, Café Ceramique offers ceramic mugs, plates, and statues – to paint and take back home. You read that right. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you’ve been missing out. It’s a great place for kids because it’s fun and they can spend hours there just painting. 2. Rivington Grill: This dining concept was brought to Dubai from London. It’s known for having fresh, seasonal products, great staff, and a ‘Best of British’ menu. It’s located in Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai. 3. The Meat Co.: If you want to have an excellent steak in a family-friendly environment, go to The Meat Co. in Madinat Jumeirah. They serve complimentary bread with beetroot and chocolate. Let’s just say, you won’t regret it. 4. Rainforest Café: This is another kids-oriented dining venue. As its name suggests, it’s decorated like a rainforest - a great place for kids on Eid because it’s filled with robotic animals that move and make sounds. 5. La Petite Maison: This is, unsurprisingly, Gordon Ramsay and Jason Atherton’s favourite place to dine in Dubai. So, you can’t go wrong with French cuisine La Petite Maison. It’s located on the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai. 6. Al Hadheerah: If you’re looking to dine in a traditional, Arabian manner this Eid, head down to Al Hadheerah desert restaurant in Bab Al Shams resort. It offers a buffet, traditional live entertainment, and fireworks. 7. Chamas: 18 kinds of meat, chicken, and lamb skewers? Check. Live music? Check. Brazilian ambience? Check! This Latin American restaurant in Crown Plaza, Sheikh Zayed Road, will keep you eating even when you’re already full – it’s that good. 8. Abd El Wahab: Named after the street where it was located in Beirut, Abd El Wahab is one of the best Arabic restaurants in Dubai. Both branches in Dubai Marina and Downtown Dubai overlook skylines and the Dubai fountain, respectively.
