Known for his love for food, Sheikh Hamdan is always on top of his game with all the latest and must-visit restaurants in Dubai.

From Michelin star chefs to award-winning food havens, we’re constantly on the lookout for where Dubai’s Crown Prince is set to dine next.

Keeping this in mind, Emirates Woman has curated a list of all the luxe eateries that Sheikh Hamdan paid a visit to in 2021, with many more to be added as the Crown Prince continually pays a visit to some of the best restaurants in Dubai.

Caviar Caspia

This brand-new highly exclusive hotspot has recently made its way to DIFC with His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, doing his rounds on the Dubai restaurant scene once again. This fine-dining haven is the first expansion for the Parisian hotspot outside of the French capital. Posting a photo to the restaurant’s new Instagram page, His Highness was seen in the restaurant posting with a Matryoshka Doll, which is a signature to the restaurant, and is known to hold caviar. Having already received the seal of approval, his loyal fans are already on a mission to try out this new and exclusive restaurant.
