15 cafes and restaurants in Dubai you can now visit with children
Many restaurants are now allowing diners between the ages of 3 and 12
In news that’s likely to be welcomed by parents, children between the ages of 3 and 12 are now allowed into independent and hotel restaurants once again.
It comes as Dubai continues to ease restrictions put in place across the emirate to stem the spread of Covid-19.
It’s important to note that children below the age of 12, and those above the age of 60, are still not allowed to enter malls, cinemas or sports facilities. So, by default, food and beverage outlets within malls are off-limits for children, for now.
Here is a list of some of the restaurants you can now visit together as a family.
