20% Off Dining In Dubai At Jumeirah Restaurants

Dubai is all about the bling, about having the biggest, best, and most expensive of everything. And there’s not a hotel group that encompasses that vision more than Jumeirah — the Burj Al Arab is probably the prime example. Apparently it was so expensive to build that they don’t even know how much it cost (which probably just means they have a bad accountant, but I digress).

While I haven’t stayed there, I’ve done afternoon tea at their Skyview Bar, and it’s one of the gaudiest, blingiest, and most ridiculous things I’ve ever experienced… and I loved it!

Anyway, Jumeirah hotels has an exclusive offer for Mastercard cardholders this summer. They’re offering 20% off dining purchases at over 50 Dubai restaurants all summer long when you pay with a Mastercard. This is valid through October 15, 2014, and any Mastercard will qualify. Just mention the promotion code “Mastercard Summer Dining” at the time of booking (though my guess is you’ll be fine even if you just mention it when you get the bill).

The participating restaurants include the following:

Jumeirah Beach Hotel:

  • 360°
  • Al Khayal
  • Beachcombers
  • Carnevale
  • Der Keller
  • Dhow & Anchor
  • La Parrilla
  • La Veranda
  • Latitude
  • Ocean Blue
  • Pool Bar
  • Uptown Bar
  • Villa Beach
  • Waterfront

Jumeirah Creekside Hotel:

  • Blue Flame
  • Nomad

Jumeirah Emirates Towers:

  • Al Nafoorah
  • Alfie’s
  • Alta Badia

  • MJ’s Steakhouse
  • Pai Thai
  • Quay Cafe

There are some great restaurants on that list. Based on what I’ve heard:

  • 360° is one of the best clubs in Dubai
  • MJ’s Steakhouse is one of the best steakhouses in Dubai
  • Latitude Restaurant has a fantastic Friday brunch (which is a spectacle in the UAE, if you’ve never experienced it before)

Bottom line

High end dining in the UAE is outrageously expensive, and a 20% discount is huge. If you’re in Dubai before October 15, I’d definitely check out one of the above restaurants. Unfortunately the Burj Al Arab restaurants don’t seem to be on the list this time around, though they have been in the past.

Is anyone going to be in Dubai before October 15 that can take advantage of this?


  1. I’ll be in dubai aug 11-13 and would like to take advantage of this. Where would be the best based on a family of 5 adults and one toddler ?

  2. @ Atreu — There’s such a wide variety of options — there’s not one best option. I’d Google some of the restaurants and take a look at the menu so you can see what you like most.

  3. I got details about this promo from my EmiratesNBD Mastercard last month and the fine print there specifically excluded Brunch, Iftaar and Suhoor from the discount.

  4. thanks for the information. My sister is currently living in Dubai and I passed the information on to her.
    She thanks you very much!!
