A guide to the seven restaurants at this lovely shoreside stretch…

Club Vista Mare is a go-to spot for sunny beachfront dining in Dubai with views over the Arabian Gulf, and mega mansion stacked Palm fronds. Since it’s opening in 2016, this stretch of beachfront restaurants have seen many restaurants come and go, so we thought it time to put together a little guide of where to go for sundowners, a leisurely lunch or a beachside dinner.

Here is a complete list of the current restaurants at Club Vista Mare.

Already open

Ibn Al Bahr

If you’re looking for the freshest seafood that won’t harm the wallet, head to Ibn Al Bahr, one of only two restaurants that has remained since the opening of 2016. A venue proudly owned by fishermen, here you can see the freshest catch of the day at the front of the restaurant on an ice display. Huge sharing plates of grilled fish are served to your table to enjoy family-style or you can choose a dish just for yourself. Think simple hot bites of crispy sardines, locally plucked clams with black pepper and whole chargrilled fish with a special Ibn Al Bahr seasoning.

Ibn Al Bahr, Club Vista Mare, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, daily 8.30am to 2am. Tel: (0)54 469 0075, ibnalbahr.me

The Tap House

The Tap House

The Tap House has something for everyone; while the dark colours, draught taps and cosy booths inside are reminiscent of an old-fashioned British pub, sitting outside enjoying the ocean breeze and sea views will firmly remind you that you’re in Dubai. Similarly, the food is a real mix of flavours, with pub favourites such as a signature burger and fish and chips alongside European salads, poke bowls and ceviches. You can also get all your favourite Asian comforts such as a pad thai, nasi goreng or a spicy prawn laksa.
