We had dinner at the Al Mahara on our recent trip to Dubai. This is one of the restaurants at the iconic Burj Al Arab. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We were greeted with a warm welcome and the staff was so attentive to our needs and made us feel... More

The hotel reception from the entrance to the restaurant was great, when we arrived to the restaurant the service was beyond excellent and the food was delicious.

We were taken to our seats at the beginning by the friendly staff who were polite throughout the time we were there. We were amazed by the aquarium and the design of the restaurant; truly unique. Unfortunately, although not the restaurant's fault but it did have a negative impact on our experience there, we were surrounded by individuals with a... More

Dear Marcus S Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am sorry to hear that the atmosphere and your evening was ruined for you due to the behaviour of others. It is often difficult to impose etiquette on guests although we do try to ensure that phones are on silent and videos are not being taken... More

Upon our arrival at the restaurant (located inside the Burj Al Arab), the manager informed us that the shoes my dad was wearing was not appropriate and that he would have to change them in order to be allowed into the restaurant. We understand that a restaurant of this calibre should have a strict dress code, so we went and... More

My family and I had dinner in early January which booked by phone 3 days in advanced. The restaurant situation is amazing with huge aquarium in the center. The staff are very welcomed and help us to select the courses. The oyster is serving very well and fresh. The caviar is very tasty with its special seasoning. The courses are... More

As a decor and ambience this is a very charming and romantic place and probably one of the best restaurants in Dubai decor wise. Service is friendly but inefficient for a restaurant of this standard. I had to pour water myself. Chocolates were brought after we paid the bill and were leaving. No one cares to ask how was the... More

I have had the privilege of dining at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Issac and Indre the pleasure of meeting the gifted and talented master of seafood Chef Nathan Outlaw. On a regular visit to UAE I ensured I made a reservation at one Dubai's most recent restaurants. Of course many travellers will know The Burj Al Arab. "The Sail"... More

Beautiful setting, food was great, menu selection a bit limited and thought it was a bit overpriced and w are used to high prices. Went on our first night in Dubai and you really shouldn't miss it but had better food elsewhere...still a great visit!

I decided to book a table after hearing great reviews about this restaurant & knowing this is a fantastic hotel having stayed before. We love seafood & had heard this was the best seafood in Dubai. When we got there we were seated near the big fish tank right on the corridor it was cold & didn't have a nice... More
