A culinary abra tour, a value waterfront dinner deal and a tapas and drinks offer for Dhs149…

From wallet-friendly dinner deals perfect for pairs, to unique dining experiences you wouldn’t get anywhere else, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to dining out in Dubai.

And if you’re looking for somewhere to head to this weekend, we’ve rounded up three spots we reckon you won’t want to miss out on. This week, there’s a great date-night courtesy of Jumeirah, which allows you to check out three restaurants via a romantic abra tour. Elsewhere, there’s a value dinner deal at Madinat Jumeirah’s Pai Thai, and a tapas offer for Dhs149 including two beers at Casa de Tapas.

Here are three new restaurants to dine at this weekend. 

Culinary tour: The Hide, Zheng He’s & Tortuga

As part of their ’90 ways to summer campaign’ Madinat Jumeirah is offering diners a culinary tour via an abra of three of their best loved restaurants. It kicks off at The Hide, where diners are treated to a selection of smaller sized signature dishes including rose veal tartare with bloody Mary tonic and flat iron steak with Korean salad. Call your abra and you’ll be off to Zheng He’s for mains. It starts with an array of dumplings from lobster to beef, followed by a full duck with pancakes, carved in front of you by the restaurant’s duck chef. For dessert, the abra tour heads to tortuga, where you’ll be served churros, fruit sticks and macaroons.
