Prices for food and drinks in Dubai - Expensive?

I am looking at visiting Dubai for a holiday with my girlfriend.

How much is food and drinks etc in bars? Is it expensive or reasonable? Also are taxis expensive?

Is it a safe place to visit on holiday with lots of things to do? We are just a little nervous RE public display of affection as i know this is very strict over thier.

Have a read down the right hand side of the page >> top questions on Dubai

it depends where you eat but its cheap enough in malls and some cafes /restaurants

taxis are cheap and there's plenty of them

its very safe

and as long as you don't go over the top you can hold hands hug and even a peck on the cheek

go for it and enjoy its not as bad as some make out ..

The bars are in the hotels and yes quite pricy but there are usually happy hours

There are places to eat for every budget from fast food restaurants to a meal in the Burj and everything inbetween! Alcohol is expensive yes but as previous post says many bars offer happy hours.

Taxis are very cheap and the best way to get around Dubai.

Dubai is very safe and I have never felt otherwise there.

There are endless things to do in Dubai,it really is a fab place to visit! Im going again soon and cannot wait!
