Ask Louise

Hi, I’ve got relatives out here and want to take them out for a dinner with some real atmosphere – not all 5 star! Someone told me about a really local fish restaurant in Jumeirah near the beach – do you have any ideas?

Yes, I think the one you are talking about is called Bu Qtair. It is in a porta-cabin and serves fish freshly caught and cooked in a curry. You eat it with your fingers, it’s messy but delicious.

Travel along Beach Road from the direction of Dubai towards the Marina. Turn right after a restaurant called The Chalet (just before Jumeirah Beach Hotel). Turn right at the end and drive till you see the restaurant which is just past dhows and fishermen’s accommodation. Enjoy!
