Sho Cho terrace hovers over a beautiful stretch of beach, so if you’re lucky enough to score outdoor seating while the weather is good, you can both see and hear the waves lap against the shore.If that meal deal opens up your date’s appetite, we really recommend you share a platter of Boca’s home cured pastrami and their black rice with seared scallops.Then you can round things off with the mascarpone crème brûlée.The Oberoi Hotel, Business Bay; A quirkier spot we’d like to recommend is Oscar’s Vine Society – tucked away in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, this little hideaway’s extensive beverage selection (over 100 varieties, 40 of which come by the glass) topped the rankings for Dubai’s best grape bar in 2008—an oldie but a goodie.Oscar’s channels a Provençale vibe—think sprays of lavender, a cutesy mural depicting a small town street.If things are going super well (which they will do, if you order that foie gras hot dog), move on to the main dining room, or better yet, the terrace with its stunning views of the Marina.

Edith Piaff, Serge Gainsbourg and Françiose Hardy play in the background, and the food menu consists of hearty stews, moules frites and a delicious lamb shoulder.
