During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Ibn AlBahr's beachside iftar offers a fresh taste of Lebanon served on the shores of the Palm Jumeirah. Proudly owned by fishermen, the beautiful seafood restaurant is perfect for both friends and family, alike.
Ibn AlBahr's iftar offers lentil soup for starter, followed by a selection of cold and hot mezze, which includes the likes of hummus, moutabal, and fattoush. For mains, it's all about fish, with dishes like sayadiyeh, fish biriyani, and fish curry, reigning supreme.
The Decor: Beachside vibes. With a fishing boat hanging from the ceiling, Ibn AlBahr's white and blue decor perfectly reflect the venue's beachside spirit.
The Ambience: Located on the hidden beach of Club Vista Mare, Ibn AlBahr feels like a mini getaway that'll disconnect you from everything else. We recommend booking a table on the sea-facing outdoor terrace to enjoy the fresh evening breeze.
The Service: Very friendly and efficient. The soup and mezzes are immediately served, perfect for those who are fasting.
Standout Dish: Priding itself on having the freshest fish in town, Ibn AlBahr's sayadiyeh is the main course to go for. The dish, which features a generous mix of fresh grilled fish and caramelized onions served on a bed of rice, is simply delicious.
Insider Tip: Skip the typical soft drinks and choose Jallab. The floral refreshing drink is made of grape molasses, dates, and rose water. Served on crushed ice, the scattered pine nut provides an extra crunch to the delicious drink.
The Location: Club Vista Mare, Palm Jumeirah
Price: AED125 per person; including a selection of mezze, main course, desert, and soft drinks
