Dubai: Tapas at Al hambra – Madinat Jumeirah

Al Hambra, tapas in Dubai

One of my favorite places in Madinat Jumeirah is the tapas restaurant Al Hambra, located in drop dead gorgeous Al Qasr Hotel in Madinat Jumeirah. It’s been more than a year since the last time I was there, so Thursday evening, Pia and I took our husbands out for some Spanish treats.

Al Hambra doesn’t look like a traditional Spanish tapas bar. Instead, the spectacular interior is in line with the other buildings in Madinat Jumeirah, so you feel like you’re inside an Arabian castle. The tapas might  be quite a far cry from what you’ll find at tapas bars in Spain, but they are tasty and the servings are generous and a lot cheaper than one might fear, considering the grandiose surroundings.

12 tapas were sufficient for the four of us to share, but we also made sure to pick some of the more filling plates such as patatas bravas and tortilla de patatas.

The tapas were a diverse, but very appetizing, mix of fish, poultry and pork and with a little effort we managed to eat our way through most of it during the evening.

Another nice Spanish restaurant in Dubai is Seville’s in Wafi, which you can read about in this blog post >>
