With all the restaurants in Dubai, it’s hard to make a mark. Especially when you’re tucked away in a small storefront right on the water at the side of Jumeirah Fishing Harbour. But 3 Fils is one of those places that is constantly lauded and recommended by those in the know. When you visit, you really do feel like you’ve stumbled upon a hidden gem, unless of course you visit in the evening and realise that many people have already discovered this gem too!
3 Fils was founded by two Emiratis and a Singaporean (the three “fils” so to speak) to offer Dubai high-quality food and drink at affordable prices in a casual inviting atmosphere.
That’s not to say the food is dirt cheap, but it does provide excellent value for money. Their black cod will set you back about AED 80, for example, compared to many chichi establishments charging upwards of AED 200.
The menu has a distinct Asian slant (the Singaporean influence) with sushi rolls and Indomie on offer, but you’ll also find other dishes such as chicken wings, lamb ribs, beef tartare and octopus. There is a heavy meat and seafood focus, so do review the menu in advance if you’re a vegetarian.
