Cartel is an exciting new leading edge, contemporary restaurant and lounge concept where guests can visit from early morning for breakfast through to late night dining or to relax within our dedicated shisha spot.
As guests enter Cartel and cast their eyes upon our artistic wall mounted stone carving depicting HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, President of the UAE until his passing in 2004, they are reminded of his vision, determination and hard work, his generosity and the way in which he devoted his life to the service of his people. It is indeed a mark of respect and a source of great inspiration for our team and our guests.
Situated alongside Media City and Internet City with a much-coveted address, Cartel Restaurant and Lounge is on the ground floor of Sidra tower that overlooks the Arabian Sea and charming city skyline of Dubai.
Offering a vibrant, stimulating lounge and restaurant setting in keeping with the DMC environment, Cartel welcomes media creative, residents from the surrounding community and international visitors to enjoy a truly relaxing atmosphere from fresh food, prepared in an open kitchen by our team of expert chefs to probably the best and most diverse shisha selections to be found anywhere in Dubai.
Guests can look forward to experiencing the delightful taste of the world’s culinary diversity! Choose from seared scallops in butternut squash caponata, Zattar parmesan crust chicken pinco, Bao Bao Wow, rub rib salmon, roasted orange and cranberry glazed duck breast, flavorsome dessert selections such as S’mores mug cake, malva pudding and tiramisu.
For a light lunch there’s also a selection of ciabatta and fresh crusty bread sandwiches, soups, salads and several other delights.
Our dedicated shisha lounge offers more than 50 flavours. Choose from applecot, barvy orange, cinnamon, dark mint, eclipse, falling star, grape, lemon blast, red berry, sweet comet, tropic ray and many more.
