My husband took me there for a surprise diner, I think it's a really nice restaurant with a great view! The experience itself makes it a special night because you can only enter the island with an reservation for the hotel or restaurant. It's a beautiful hotel..

The Skyview Bar is extremely well presented and the decore and ambience very nice; the staff are extremely friendly and can not do enough for you; the views of Dubai are very good when the haze is not about. We were there for the afternoon tea experience. You receive one glass of champagne each and as much food as you... More

So I'd read that this was a must-do in Dubai and I absolutely cannot agree. It was...interesting to say the least. Very empty hotel, tacky décor, and the Skyview Bar's theme seemed to be a mix of computers and nautical. Very weird. That being said, the service there was truly fantastic. The food was okay, hit or miss depending on... More

Great food and drinks are not the only thing you will have at this bar. The view is amazing!! They have a good selection of wine to choose from (not cheap) but that's ok the place is amazing inside as well. The service here was great both drinks and food, some of the places in town are a little slow... More

Afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab is a must when in Dubai. For that extra special treat it has to be the Skyview Bar! Staff are extremely professional and courteous. There is a great choice of drinks from the bar once the first glass of champagne has been consumed. In between delivery of each of the seven courses you... More

The décor was a major shock to us. For an opulent restaurant/bar in the worlds most renowned hotel, we were disappointed at the tacky décor. The views are spectacular, and the service is good but not outstanding. We ordered our meal and were hungry. It was a 5 course meal, and with any fine dining experience, the portion of each... More

We went here after Al Mahara, killing 2 birds as its in the same hotel. View is great, so are the olives and nuts, but that's about it. It was absolutely dead in there. No atmosphere whatsoever. Drinks are way overpriced, and the service was appalling. I had to book in advance for a table just to drink in here... More
