If you’re looking for something unique, The Secret Garden at Address Downtown has the most spectacular views of Burj Khalifa and is surely one of the best locations in town. The beauty of this venue, is it’s alfresco terrace, so you can enjoy your Suhoor under the stars, complete with Arabic-style pipe music, an incredible a la carte menu, shisha all until sunrise. | Dhs160 per person. To book, call: +971 4 888 3444


One of our favourite places to break fast due to its relaxed, ambient vibe, we’ve been visiting The Courtyard at Manzil Downtown for years. Enclosed but under the stars, the Courtyard’s Suhoor will transport you to the The Silk Route, as it serves up beautiful petit meals inspired by the legendary Silk Road. | Dhs95 per person. To book, call: 971 4 888 3444


When you break fast, you might as well do it in style, and venues don’t come much more fabulous than Cipriani in Gate Village, DIFC. What’s unique about this particular restaurant is that it breaks with tradition, offering non-traditional Iftar cuisine, honing in its culinary USP of excellent Italian fare. Think burrata alla Mediterranea, beautifully crisp calamari and vanilla merengue with date ice cream to round everything off. | Dhs 280 per person. To book, call: +971 4 347 0003
