Known for its outstanding al-fresco setting, The Courtyard restaurant in downtown Dubai offers traditional Arabic favourites, with contemporary global twists. The serene setting of the outdoor dining area is breath-taking, with Arabic style arches surrounding the scene, comfortable cushioned wicker chairs, all softly lit by the flickering fireplaces dotted around. Located in the centre of the hotel Vida, The Courtyard has become a popular destination for relaxed all-day dining, perfect for everything from a casual lunch with the family, to an intimate romantic dinner.  

The menu at The Courtyard is centred around traditional Arabic flavours that everyone can enjoy, boasting international items as well as plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. Cold starters include fresh zaatar salad, burrata and marinated heirloom tomato salad, and mezze like tabbouleh, moutabel and fattoush, or if you fancy a hot starter, opt for the lamb kibbeh or grilled haloumi. For the main event, treat yourself to the smoky grilled lamb chops, juicy tiger prawns or international dishes like beefy burgers or creamy pasta. Why not add a side of fluffy manakish with toppings to choose from including classic zaatar, cheese and kofta.  

With such a stunning setting, you could also just visit for a drink and a nibble of mezze. Sip on fresh Moroccan tea or Turkish coffee whilst you absorb the serene ambience. Or indulge in the cocktails, from the traditional Negroni to the exotic Turkish Martini, mocktails are also available. There are also several different international wines to choose from, if that’s more your preference, from a deep Bordeaux to a light and fruit Chardonnay. Additionally, and what has proved to make The Courtyard so popular, there are multiple flavours of shisha available, perfect to cap off this arabesque evening.
