Discover green cuisine and art at XVA Art Café
Those in the know will know XVA Café. The art space and café is hidden away in an old coral limestone Emirati home (now converted into a boutique hotel) within the historical neighbourhood of Al Fahidi alongside Dubai Creek. Traditional majlis-style seating and mature trees in the courtyard preserve some of the atmosphere of the original residence, while the on-site art gallery and design boutique bring a contemporary edge. The menu – predominantly vegetarian save for the odd tuna ensemble – features dishes such as watermelon, feta and mint ‘Creek Salad’ and rose cheesecake.
