With a beautiful setting on the bright first floor lounge of the iconic Burj Al Arab’s Sahn Eddar has a backdrop of the hotel’s multi-coloured balconies. Diners have a postcard-worthy view of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and strains of piano music waft over the restaurant, adding to the luxurious atmosphere. Tea here is a seven-course sitting, which begins with a delightful slim slice of light shortbread topped with mixed berries, followed a by a two-tiered tray of petite crustless sandwiches. The hot drinks menu offers a great selection of black, white, green and fresh floral teas that can be replenished on request. Coffee is also included. It’s everything you’d expect from a top afternoon tea, and more.
Dhs510 per person. Daily 1pm, 3pm, 5pm. Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Road (04 301 7600).
