I did the their signature degustation menu for dinner and I'm not sure why this was well rated. I was going for the culinary flight but that was all booked during my time in Dubai. For a "7 star restaurant", I did not find the food any particularly better well presented, unique or tastefull than most regular restaurants in Toronto. I would say 4 of my 7 courses had just one taste to it...salty. The food just didn't taste flavourful to me.


On a side note, you either need to book the culinary flight or make multiple reservations if you want to see the other restaurants. They generally don't let you wander around to explore the other restaurants without a reservation. The hotel is nice but I would say on-par with the nicer Vegas hotels. I would suggest a lunch instead of dinner at this restaurant as there is no view at night as it faces the water.

After being told by concierge in our hotel what we could and couldn't wear,we arrived in restaurant to find trainers and hoodies,white jeans and tshirts!! Fab hotel and lobbys and staff in restaurant were great,very attentive.we went in the evening and sat in a position where we could have been anywhere, not able to see any views!! Would recommend daytime tea or drinks to be able to see Dubai city.another thing ticked off the bucket list but a bit disappointed overall, and very pricey!!

We were staying in Jumeirah Beach hotel for my 40th birthday in June. We went across to the Burj Al Arab for lunch and had a cilinary flight experience. Here was our main course. The food was so gorgeous, and the service was amazing. The views were outstanding. I would also like to say a very Special thank you to the 2 waiters that looked after us. Forgive me for spelling your names incorrectly but there was Ifan who was Canadian and Norben. Thank you for a Very Special Birthday lunch..

We had lunch at the Al Muntaha, the food was delicious and the views were spectacular. The staff were very friendly and courteous, and the meal was very relaxed and you are left to enjoy everything at your own pace.
