Craving some Mediterranean sun but don’t want to wait until June (or step foot in the airport for that matter)?
Enter Il Faro. Located on Palm Jumeirah, the restaurant which takes its name from the Italian word for lighthouse, perfectly blends al fresco beachside dining with all of your Italian foody favourites, thanks to its new La Festa Italiania brunch.
Our top tip? From the enormous sharing platter piled high with classic antipasto, arancini and burrata, to the mains that don’t force you to choose between pizza or pasta (you get both), the menu has been designed to let diners sample everything so come hungry.
And when you can’t possibly eat anymore, sit back, bask in the sunshine and the bella vista, and remind yourself why living in Dubai really is la dolce vita.
