Asia De Cuba

Estimated Savings: AED170
Location: The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi
Our Opinion: The restaurant manages to feel cosy, yet modern with a huge focus wall of ocean colours and textures (we couldn’t stop staring at it) but the outside area is equally impressive with a vast bar area and decking that has a stunning and glittering view of the Marina by night. The whole experience is outstanding with exceptional food and awesome vibes!
Top Tip: 
Once you are done eating, pop upstairs to the bar for a boogie. It’s such a fun little atmosphere up there, you’ll party the night away, we’re sure.

The City Grill

Estimated Savings: AED360
Location: 1st Level, The Atrium, Al Habtoor City
Our Opinion: The City Grill is ready to fulfil your carnivore cravings! Come and explore the richest South African dining experience, uniquely styled with sophisticated décor, intense flavours and a generous selection of premium meat. You don’t get much better than flame-grilled cuts of tender meat and The City Grill are famed for their fiery flair in the kitchen.
Top Tip: Make sure you go hungry. It would be a travesty if you couldn’t truly indulge at one of our favourite places to get the meat sweats.


Estimated Savings: AED320
Location: 1st Level, The Atrium, Al Habtoor City
Our Opinion: A vibrant fiesta of modern Mexico and Latin America, ZOCO is an urban and soulful eatery, cocktail bar and lounge serving reimagined classic dishes alongside Latino beverages. We can’t get enough of the funky decor and the hundreds of bottles hanging from the ceiling. It has a great vibe and the food is perfect for sharing and group gatherings.


Estimated Savings: AED300
Location: La Mer, Jumeirah
Our Opinion: Masti which translates to “fun and mischief”, infuses modern with tradition and colour with flavour creating an expression of “New India”. The restaurant has an ‘indoor, outdoor’ feel to it with comfy lounge seating and a menu perfect for sharing. 
Top Tip: 
Go in the evening when it’s cooler and sit by the window for a view of La Mer and the sea.

The Croft

Estimated Savings: AED250
Location: Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites
Our Opinion: The Croft at Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites is a local favourite amongst Dubai Marina residents. It’s a relaxed British gastropub with an outdoor garden and the venue dishes up exceptionally good British food. It’s cooked with a modern twist and the very best of home-grown, organic produce for a real taste of ‘home’.
Top Tip: 
No need to dress to impress, wear your comfies and gather round the fireplace for a good chinwag with all your mates.
