Rustar Floating Restaurant Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The Rustar is a traditional wooden dhow vessel that offers its guests dining and entertainment while cruising along Dubai Creek and taking in the sights of the city. The ship, which is equipped with lateen sails, has three levels; the lower deck has a bar, the middle level features the main dining hall, and the upper level is an open-air dinner deck.
A romantic setting for a meal for two but equally popular with families, the Rustar Floating Restaurant has all the luxuries of a five-star establishment. Its lavish interior is made up of predominantly glass and teak wood with typical Arabic designs throughout, and there’s even a small rock waterfall onboard to add to the ambience. Dinner is a buffet of international and continental cuisine, while the live entertainment includes singing, dancing, and other performances.
The Rustar Floating Restaurant experience lasts for two hours and bookings should be made in advance. There are various types of tours to choose from, some of which include roundtrip transfers from selected Dubai hotels.
