Toast to the sunset at this lively Mexican restaurant…

The winter months are in full swing in Dubai which means plenty of alfresco drinking and dining (you might want to bring a jumper these days though, as it’s getting a little chilly). One fabulous spot for just that is the loud and proud Mexican restaurant, Señor Pico on West Beach.

A fantastic happy hour runs there four days a week, offering 50 per cent off selected food and cocktails. You can avail the excellent deal from 5pm to 7pm, Sunday to Wednesday. You’ll find Señor Pico and West Beach on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah.

Half price cocktails include the Margarita Classica, a tropical mai tai with tequila, Pinky Gonzalez, a snowy concoction of light rum with coconut and pineapple and plenty more. Dishes include Pico chicken, cheesy quesadillas and tortilla chips and dips.
