Dubai- do I really need to spend a fortune on food?

I can get and stay in Dubai at a really good price but can I eat without breaking the bank or do I just accept it will cost a fortune? I would appreciate your advice!

Dubai has relatively inexpensive dining when compared to europe and the US - and some great restos from all over.

whats expensive is alcohol. the cheapest wine bottle will cost $30. you could save big time by purchasing at the dubai duty free on ur way in.. max 4 bottles of anything and enjoy it in your room...

thanks I honestly thought that it was expensive to eat out.
when I land at dubai I can get 4 bottles at duty free? I thought it was 1 litre only?

You won't be able to buy duty free upon arrival in Dubai. You must get it from your departure airport,as always, incidentally. Enquire there, how much is allowed. I think, it's 1 liter strong alcohols like vodka, rum, gin, etc. OR two bottles of wine per person (adults only).

Just a note that this is not always true. There are several (possibly many) countries where duty free can be purchased upon arrival.
