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 Rosé Champagne and canapés.
  • 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.
  • 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 surprises from premium artisan producers Avantcha Tea and Balqees Raw Yemeni Honey.
  • 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 on 20th November 2017 is fully booked, so we are now taking reservations for the 29th January 2018 event. 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?

    Hi Samantha,

    It was such a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the selection of restaurants. Looking forward to the next event ..

    Best wishes

    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?


    • FooDiva January 22, 2017 at 2:30 pm

      I’ve emailed you directly Xanthe 🙂

  9. Suzannah October 31, 2017 at 10:32 pm

    Hi, would you let me know when the next available date is please?



    • FooDiva November 1, 2017 at 10:09 am

      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 🙂
