Dubai Food Festival Opens This Week with a Jam Packed Calendar of Gastronomic Events and Experiences for Its 10th Edition

The annual Dubai Food Festival kicks off on Friday, 21 April running until Sunday, 7 May and is set to showcase the city’s diverse and award winning gastronomy scene.  

The first week of the festival will feature a mix of old favourites and new features, including Etisalat by e& Beach Canteen, Foodie Experiences and 10 Dirham Dishes.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 19 April 2023: Dubai Food Festival (DFF), the region’s largest annual food festival, will kick off its first week on Friday, 21 April to celebrate its 10th edition with a thrilling line-up of gastronomic events and experiences. Running until Sunday, 7 May , the city will be transformed into a haven for foodies as hundreds of restaurants, cafés, and eateries will be offering a host of culinary experiences and fresh, new concepts during the 17-day festival.
Dubai’s food scene has undergone an incredible transformation over the last decade, establishing the city as a global gastronomy hub demonstrated by the number of restaurants being recognised through global programs including MICHELIN, MENAs 50 Best Restaurants and the UAE edition of Gault & Millau. . The overall number of restaurants in the city has more than doubled during this period, with over 13,000 in 2023, compared to approximately 5,500 in 2013. 

Food trucks and beach-side eateries may not have been a part of Dubai’s gastronomy scene in 2014 when DFF first started, but the destination has since witnessed the emergence of exciting food concepts, pop-up dining events, farm-to-table dining experiences, and quirky food halls as the festival has evolved.  Etisalat e& Beach Canteen made its first appearance at the inaugural DFF and is now a favourite for Dubai residents and visitors alike.

Located at Jumeirah Beach (behind Sunset Mall), the popular Etisalat e& Beach Canteen  is once again a key feature of  the festival, providing guests with live entertainment, beach-side dining and daily activities and pop-ups. Featuring a retro beach theme this free-to-attend event gives friends, families and foodies an exciting opportunity to enjoy the outdoors through unmissable activities at all of its zones, each promising a unique experience. Launching on the Eid Al Fitr weekend, Etisalat by e& Beach Canteen will also be celebrating with mesmerising evening fireworks on the 21st of April, traditional acts on the main stage and the launch of the Food Focus Dubai Exhibition featuring many inspirational photos of the food scene across Dubai.

In celebration of the festival’s 10th edition, the 10 Dirham Dish will make its debut as participating restaurants and cafés will offer their classic and signature dishes for only AED10 throughout the festival. The full list of participating outlets can be found on Zomato for the festival period.
Foodie Experiences will return bigger and better for the 10th edition with close to 100 curated experiences on offer including  special masterclasses hosted by award-winning chefs, exclusive Chef’s Tables, kids’ workshops, culinary collaborations and immersive experiential dining events. Kicking off during the first week, the city’s top restaurants putting on a series of unmissable events including an exclusive eight-course Chef’s Table curated by Kunal Kapoor and 6 hands dinner with chefs Torno Subito, Gucci Osteria, and Giardino 25. All Foodie Experiences can be found on and can be booked through Open Table

Another DFF favourite returning this year is, Dubai Restaurant Week with more than 50 of Dubai’s top restaurants participating.

As well as this, visitors can opt to indulge in Chef’s Tables as select chefs showcase their culinary expertise, bringing authentic flavours with each curated tasting menu.

Dubai Food Festival also offers kids the chance to learn new cooking skills and the culinary culture of various cuisines, as chefs from local restaurants help the little ones make special local dishes from scratch as well as decorate desserts for a sweet finish. The first week of DFF will feature an exciting kids workshop at Arabian Tea House, Black Tap kids CrazyShake Masterclass, and a pizza making workshop at Marina Social. 
The programme details required for bookings can be found on the DFF website, and diners are encouraged to make reservations early on Open Table to avoid missing out on these delicious events.
