Ended my Dubai trip with drinks at the Burj Al Arab in the Skyview Bar. Was transported there from the Pai Thai restaurant with the Medinat Jumeirah hotel by golf cart. Was a great experience and our driver allowed us to stop on the way to take photos of and with the Burj. Was blown away by the building. Wasn't... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant couple of hours having afternoon tea at the Skyview Bar. We booked via email three months ahead of our visit and received prompt acknowledgment of the booking - no deposit was required. We arrived about 20 minutes prior to our reservation at 4pm, and waited in a rather opulent reception area before being whisked up... More

Exellent hotel no doubt, so expected much much more! Average service for a 7 star hotel but also very pricy

During a 5 week stay we visited sky bar almost every evening. We were always welcomed as in house guests straight up the elevator, straight to an available table. While we don't drink alcohol we did enjoy tea, soft drinks, and mocktails. Special sweets and a rose from wait staff and managment. And the most important staff member NBD keeps... More

We didn't eat here this time, but we did have a pre-dinner drink. The views, are of course, amazing and the service O.K. However, rather overpriced! ~But isn't everything in Dubai! I believe, if you are not staying in the hotel, they do a package for drinks and snacks which is, I believe, about 350 dh. The lady at the... More

Decided spontaneously to go to Skyview Bar during the weekend. As expected it was fully booked, however we still got a nice table with a view. Ordered 4 different types of cocktails.

Excellent experience, we took family for a high tea and had an amazing time the food was of the highest quality expected and the different teas available were too many to mention let alone taste them all, but we had a good go. Staff were helpful and friendly all in all a great day had by all.

While the service was good for afternoon tea it was not exceptional- the waiters english was difficult to understand and the style was not very genuine- more rote and non sensitive to customer need- small things- there were 5 of us and even though there are only 6 glasses in the champagne bottle that last glass was taken away!
