Early in 2014, TimeOut said that Cargo Restaurant Dubai “could be the coolest Marina spot” of the year and it is easy to see why. Located next to the Marina Mall, this laid-back and welcoming restaurant has an impressive menu of Asian-fusion appetizers and main meals. But as opposed to alternative eateries, Cargo’s competitive prices won’t put a massive dent in your wallet.

Even so, the stylish and sophisticated decor oozes class. Inside, you’ll find marble-topped tables and wooden floorboards while the terrace’s superb view is up there with the best in Dubai. This makes it the perfect spot for a few chilled out evening drinks too, as Cargo has a selection of signature cocktails that simply must be sampled. After the restaurant and bar closes why not head to one of the nightclubs in the city to dance the night away?

Clinton St. Baking Company

This new addition to Dubai’s downtown, located behind the Boulevard in Burj Views, comes straight from New York, where it has enjoyed huge success as a hotspot for brunch. The fittings and fixtures basic, but this no-nonsense attitude is replicated by the well-informed and polite staff, who prioritize American-style, fast food efficiency.

As for the food, Clinton St. Baking Company specializes in classic and contemporary breakfasts. Take your pick from pancakes, granola or one of the numerous egg-based recipes. The menu is  influenced by Mexico as well as America – the ‘Huevos Rancheros’ is definitely worth a try.

Sapori di BiCE

Italian cuisine is in abundance all over the city and the popular Milanese chain of eateries known as BiCE recently launched a new establishment in the al fresco district, Citywalk. Sapori di BiCE’s clean white interior and ample outdoor seating create a comfortable environment, which will make you feel like you’re dining out in a quaint Mediterranean town.

A whole host of Italian classics and European-style fare can be found on the menu, from pizzas and sandwiches, to pastas and salads. This is coupled with a friendly and accommodating service, even if it can sometimes be as relaxed and laid-back as life on the Italian coast.

So, next time you’re looking for somewhere new or novel to eat in Dubai, consider the three aforementioned eateries and establishments, you won’t be left disappointed!
