Located 442 metres above Dubai, on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa, this fine dining restaurant boasts dazzling views of the city. Sophisticated At.mosphere offers diners an uncomplicated menu of quality seafood, tender cuts of meat and an extensive premium drinks list. It’s great for visitors to the city who want to experience the views from the world’s tallest building and enjoy a top-notch meal – and it delivers on both fronts. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable of the menu, and to sample the best of what’s on offer it’s worth trying the taster menus. These offer five or seven courses that feature seafood and meats cooked in the restaurant’s Josper grill, as well as shellfish. The spherical chocolate dessert with peanut ice cream and a warm chocolate sauce is a show stopper. Seating near the windows will add an additional Dhs150 per person to your minimum spend, but for a special occasion it’s worth paying.
Open daily 12.30pm-3pm, 6.30pm-11.30pm. Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai, www.atmosphereburjkhalifa.com (04 888 3444).
