On my last night at the Burj I had the tasting menu at Al Mahara. The food, wine, and service were amazing, It was made even better by the great view of the Aquarium. Highly recommended.

My husband planned our Valentine's dinner to Al Mahara. When he made the dinner reservation, he was told it was a French restaurant. When we arrived to Burj Al Arab, we saw the name of the chef/restaurant 'Nathan Outlaw' displayed. The receptionist were very welcoming and took us promptly to our table. Our table was nicely decorated (rose petals...) and... More

I would highly recommend booking a table here, food is incredible and service second to none, and that is without mentioning the fish and views, you wont need conversation as you just are astounded by the fish. Remember to pack a blazer because you need one to eat in here.

Had dinner here on my birthday last year, food was good but not exceptional for the prices attached. Aquarium is mesmerising, even if I have reservations about keeping fish in tanks. As with most fine dining restaurants the vegetarian option was nice but it would have been lovely to have some choice for a change.
