Dubai’s Souk Al Bahar offers a plethora of dining options under the guise of an authentic Arabian Souq. Take a short hop over the bridge connecting Souk Al Bahar to the adjacent Dubai Mall and the restaurants change from franchised chains and fast food favourites to something more representative of fine dining. The advantage Souk Al Bahar holds over its bustling retail neighbour is the glorious views over the Burj Khalifa fountains, with most restaurants occupying a premium vantage point, perched close to the waters of Dubai’s favourite tourist attraction.
