If you’re looking for a dining experience that is impressive yet affordable, Scape could be the best around. The setting, for a start, is unique. It sits at the end of the terrace outside the back of the Burj Al Arab.
Just arriving at the hotel is enough to make most people giddy so getting to see it from a new angle at this pool-side restaurant is a real thrill. It’s a relaxed and informal spot, and the prices are lower than you might expect for such a high-profile location. Staff encourage diners to order a few dishes to share. The Baja-style fish tacos with sour cream and avocado are simply presented and crunchy, while the hamachi crudo from the raw seafood menu is full of freshness and infused with citrus and olive. The pan-roasted mussels with charred lime are excellent and are perfect as a main course. Everything is fresh and tastes great, but the star of the show is dessert. Don’t leave until you’ve tried the chocolate peanut pot de crème. It’s delicious without being too rich. Scape is an affordable way to enjoy the sights of the Burj Al Arab and experience casual dining with a touch of elegance.
