We can vouch for its grilled chicken souvlaki and the juicy lamb cutlets, and it looks like one of the world's most famous footballers is also a fan of The Lighthouse. Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah dropped by the Dubai Design District restaurant on Wednesday, where he was snapped mingling with the eatery's staff.

The star appeared happy to take selfies with employees and diners alike, with The Lighthouse sharing a few snaps on its Instagram page.

"How to literally work towards your goals? We'll simply ask The Pharaoh himself, Mo Salah," read the caption. "Thank you for stopping by The Lighthouse today!"

The restaurant, which is located in d3's Building 6, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a menu full of fresh, hearty dishes with a Mediterranean twist. think baked goat's cheese pie with sumac and honey, grilled sea bass with artichoke and fennel, and apple and olive oil cake.

The Lighthouse also has a concept store on-site, which sells an array of trinkets, from chic stationery and arty homewares to calming home fragrances.

Salah hasn't shared any more information from his visit to Dubai, other than a shot of him playing paddle tennis and relaxing on a couch.

The footballer appears to have been staying in the emirate for a while, however, judging by an Instagram picture he posted six days ago.

"Pre-pre-season," he captioned a selfie taken in front of gym weights. In the background is a vista of Buisness Bay (we can make out the distinctive tower of the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel).

Salah is no stranger to Dubai; he visited back in January to receive the Outstanding Arab Athlete award at the 10th annual Mohammed Bin Rashid Creative Sports Award.
