Fancy dining around Dubai with FooDiva?


‘Fun is the new fine dining’ is an intimate and mystery dining experience tasting handpicked dishes from three best-in-class restaurants in Dubai – all in one night with FooDiva herself as your personal guide. With the launch of a new restaurant itinerary, what does the experience include?

  • Each of the three high-end restaurants serve a different course and cuisine, with platefuls of fun foodie trivia by FooDiva.
  • Start the evening at our first secret restaurant with Ruinart Champagne and an oyster tasting by the founder of the UAE’s first oyster farm in Dibba, Fujairah.
  • The evening progresses with signature dishes at each of the three restaurants presented by the chefs and paired with wine courtesy of MMI. A sommelier from The Tasting Class will explain the wines.
  • At our last restaurant prior to desserts, you will enjoy a cheese tasting, the French way 😉
  • All restaurants are in close proximity – with car transfers provided.
  • The evening starts at 6.30pm and will end at approximately 10.30pm in a different venue to the first restaurant. The meeting point of the first restaurant will be advised in advance. The rest will remain a secret!
  • Cost: AED850 per person to include all food, Champagne, wine and car transfers – as well as an Uber promo code for outgoing and return journeys home. All guests will receive a gift bag with vouchers from MMI, Le Clos and Al Hamra Cellar, as well as goodies from premium artisan producers Avantcha Tea, and Lakrids by Johan Bülow gourmet chocolate and liquorice.
  • Only 12 spots available! Advance booking with pre-payment is required.
  • Note: restaurants do change to retain an element of mystery.
  • The next #DineAroundDubai experience is on the 29th January 2018 – bookable here.

    Can I join a planned tour as a solo diner along with other people who sign up or are they private tours for groups that come together?


    • FooDiva July 3, 2015 at 5:56 pm

      Yes of course you can join in Hala. Anyone can sign up. Each dine around is for up to 12 people 🙂 Thanks.

    Good afternoon,

    Do this event cater also for vegetarians?

    Sounds very interesting, really like the concept

    Thank you and best regards?

    • FooDiva November 16, 2015 at 2:58 pm

      Hi Nadege – whilst we do cater for a few dietary requirements, we’re unable to make the event completely vegetarian as it wouldn’t be representative of each restaurant’s signature dishes.

    I would be interested in joining to a venue that serves a variety of GLUTEN FREE besides ‘usual rice cakes’.
    I have both gluten and salicylates sensitivity – dining out can be daunting.

    Hello! I was wondering when you Dubai foodie tour was in February? I am interested in one for Feb 12th. Thanks!

    • FooDiva January 18, 2016 at 4:51 pm

      Hi Chelsea. It won’t be on the 12th sadly. I am looking at 7th March TBC. Do you live in Dubai or are you a visitor?

    Dear Samantha,
    I am interested to join during weekend, National day long weekend as I am based in Abu Dhabi.
    Have a great day and kind regards,

    • FooDiva November 23, 2016 at 12:38 pm

      Hi Elena,

      We don’t have one over those dates. Dine arounds are typically on a week night. If you can’t make 28th November, the next experience will be on the 30th January. Alternatively if you can get a group of eight people together I can organise one just for you, at a date that works for you.

    Hi there,

    I’m wondering if you have a dine around planned at some point between 22nd Feb and 3 March?

      I’ve emailed you directly Xanthe 🙂

      Hi Suzannah – I have just set the date. 29th January next year. Does that work for you? If you’re able to attend, please use the booking link on Thanks 🙂
