I’m really glad that the summer season in Dubai is over this year. It took some time before temperatures dropped and as an expat living in the UAE for over 4 years now, the weather has become cooler in late October only (usually, my wife and I would feel it around first week).
Anyway, with the new season comes plenty of outdoor dining options! This is one of the great reasons why we love to eat out during winter as it’s really so much better to dine while enjoying the sights of Dubai al fresco style.
