Dubai: the Middle East meets the world with astonishing results

A period of extraordinary activity has transformed Dubai into one of the most modern and luxurious cities on the planet. The world’s tallest tower, a series of man-made islands, gigantic aquariums, indoor ski slopes and seven-star hotels make Dubai one of the world’s fastest-growing tourist destinations. But don’t be fooled into thinking there is nothing more to Dubai than glitz and glamour. Scratch the surface and the heartbeat of a multicultural, multifaceted city still beats strong.

Sunny European cuisine in the heart of Dubai

Sunny European cuisine in the heart of Dubai Editors' Note

The Villa Beach Restaurant used to rank among Dubai’s best restaurants, cherished for its sunny European cuisine, beachside setting and unsurpassed views of the Burj Al Arab.

While more dramatic dining options are now available, La Villa has lost none of its charm, offering heavenly dishes such as the tender beef fillet with oxtail, roasted corn fed chicken and banana toffee cheesecake. Opt for three courses as portions err on the small side and request a table with a view.
