Al Mahara, Burj Al Arab
Nominated for Best Seafood 25 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
For better or worse Al Mahara’s location at the Burj Al Arab precedes anything noted about its food. Although there's no denying it makes big statements with its giant fish tank, and while most people will be won over just by the sight of the beautifully-lit caved entrance, the food, too, sparkles – given the chance. Each dish is pushed hard in terms of finesse and it's nice to see food served with an equal sense of adventure and craft (especially considering the price). The monkfish, in particular, is tender and cooked to perfection, and comes with an imaginative ‘mini-piano’ made from vegetable strips as keys. Plush and dangerously pricey, the Burj's flagship seafood restaurant is by no means an everyday venture; its splendour leans heavily on overkill, but if a big deal is to be done or a life-changing question to be popped, this is the perfect stage.
