A British restaurant that serves traditional family meals in a casual homely environment, Pots, Pans and Boards is an ideal place for families, large groups, couples and even solo diners. Located at the heart of The Beach Dubai, this restaurant serves up English, Mediterranean and French dishes, with a home-style offering of sharing servings of starters, main courses and desserts.

One of the things we like about this place is that if you’re travelling with small children in strollers, this place has enough space for them. As for the food, not only will you get Michelin Star-quality dishes from renowned chef Tom Aikens, the kids will also get healthy meals at a temperature adjusted specifically for their palette so they can eat their food right away! No more blowing on their food, parents!

Pots, Pans and Boards is located at Unit 5101,  The Beach, Opposite Jumeirah Beach Residence (also known as JBR).


2. Fümé

One of Dubai’s most popular brunch spots for families with kids is Fume, located at Pier 7 in Dubai’s Marina. For kid’s brunch on weekends, the restaurant turns its indoor dining area into a massive kid-friendly space where both kids and adults can go and play. 

While the kids enjoy spaghetti, fish and chips, and other bites, the adults are treated with starters and hearty mains.
