This award-winning Lebanese restaurant has a new beachfront home
Sponsored: From Beirut, with love…
Al Nafoorah has consistently been recognised as one of Dubai’s best Middle Eastern restaurants, presenting a delectable menu of Lebanese classics at its home at Jumeirah Emirates Towers. But the restaurant has now migrated across town, finding a new home inside the picture-perfect Jumeriah Al Qasr.

Set on the lower ground floor, the aesthetic draws inspiration from the Berdawni Riviera, known as the city of wine and poetry, translating it into a palatial setting at Jumeirah Al Qasr. Inside, the restaurant features a warm palette with rich ruby red accents, with tables and booths centred around an impressive olive tree. Outside, there’s a wrap-around terrace for those who wish to dine alfresco, backdropped by the winding Madinat waterways and sail-shaped silhouette of the Burj Al Arab.
Inviting guests to discover the same award-winning flavours as at the original, the menu is an ode to traditional Lebanese cuisine, laced with innovative interpretations by chef Ali Fouad. Chef Ali’s Teta’s Salad is a recipe that’s been passed through his family through generations; the Al Nafoorah hummus is a must-try, and the tender lamb shank mouzat, served on a bed of oriental rice and fruity pomegranate is another culinary highlight.
To add to the authentic experience, there’s also shisha service available when dining.
You can expect the warm and sincere hospitality you would anticipate from an authentic Lebanese restaurant, coupled with the exceptional service Jumeirah prides itself on.
Open for lunch and dinner, Al Nafoorah presents a slice of Lebanon, with love.
