Located in the incredibly vast Jumeirah area of Dubai, within the Jumeirah Al Qasr hotel, the Al Fayrooz Lounge’s stunning Middle Eastern features and sea views are enough to make you want to stay here all day.
Serving afternoon tea and some casual dining options, guests can enjoy the likes of shakshouka, brioche French toast, and halloumi and Zaatar Manakish for breakfast, Lunch brings options such as fattoush and croque monsieur while dinner has to be a traditional moussaka. Although the décor is Middle Eastern, don’t be fooled - the cuisine here is international. Finish your meal on a sweet note with a slice of caramel cheesecake, kunafa or sticky date pudding.
The traditional afternoon tea is well worth a try too. Served on delicate cake stands and featuring the likes of scones, delicate patisserie and dainty finger sandwiches you’ll be full all the way until dinner.
As with many restaurants in the city, Al Fayrooz is located inside a hotel, making it the ideal spot if you are peckish after an afternoon siesta or just fancy a big snack before heading out into the city or beach. As one of seven restaurants located in this hotel alone, you’re likely to have time to visit them all if you are staying at the hotel, if however, if you are short of time in the city this casual dining restaurant is well worth a visit, especially for those in a rush to see the city or to get to the airport in time.
If you sit outside in the stunning ‘arabesque’ lounge you can also enjoy the traditional Dubai pastime of relaxing with a shisha that is available in a number of different flavours. Overlooking such stunning views, we can’t think of any better way to spend time in this wonderful city.
