Things to Do at Taste

Eat at Dubai's Best Restaurants

At the heart of Taste was a plethora of 15 pop-up restaurants, selected from the newly released Michelin Guide Dubai. Each restaurant served a 3-dish menu exclusively created for Taste of Dubai. The dishes were taster sized portions – allowing you to try a range of the UAE’s best cuisines, all in one place!

Taste the Music

No festival is complete without a soundtrack! Taste of Dubai was jam-packed with entertainment – from chilled acoustic sets, to high energy bands, to lively DJ sets keeping our guests dancing late into the evening.

Masterclasses and Workshops

Every day was a school day at Taste of Dubai! Our guests learned from their favourite chefs at Taste’s first ever barbeque school, fueled up at coffee and mixology masterclasses, and got the perfect Insta shot in our food styling and photography workshops.
