Could this be the ultimate date night spot in Dubai?

#ChicEats | Bice Mare, Souk Al Bahar

OK, we admit that this established eatery is by no means a new discovery, rather it’s a beloved stalwart on the Dubai foodie scene. However, with the introduction of a fresh, new summer menu, this nine-year-old Italian seafood restaurant with roots dating back to 1926 in Milan, is proving that age is just a number and making us fall in love with it all over again.


Settings don’t come any more romantic. Grab a table on the terrace whilst it’s cool enough (huge AC units make this more doable than you may think) where the Burj Khalifa’s LED display and the Dubai Fountains make for a magical backdrop.


Starters comprise an appetising selection of Italian favourites including beef carpaccio, calamari and mussels in tomato sauce, but the creamy Burrata served with bresaola on a bed of rocket and accompanied by black truffle is the standout. The mains are equally as impressive with equally as much choice for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. But unsurprisingly it’s the fish dishes on the summer menu that blow dinner out of the water. The sea bass accompanied by a sweet cherry tomato salad and the whole oven-baked sea bream with artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes is two to try.

Branzino Arrosto

Save room for dessert where an authentic tiramisu will satisfy any sweet tooth.


Italian lovers in love, make this your date night go-to.
