Gourmet Dinner at Al Mahara in Burj Al-Arab in Dubai with Private Transfers
Head inside and ride the dedicated elevator to the regal, undersea-themed Al Mahara, whose name translates as 'Oyster Shell' in Arabic. Walk through the shell-shaped tunnel entrance and admire the opulent, circular dining room, where tables and booths are set around the floor-to-ceiling aquarium.
Watch the marine life swim by and take your pick from fish, seafood and other creations from the 3-course menu. Dishes vary, but expect offerings such as chilled asparagus velouté, line-caught sea bass and Angus beef, plus exquisite desserts such as white chocolate cheesecake. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. Drinks to accompany your meal are available to purchase from the bar.
Once you finish your meal, leave the Al Mahara and end your experience with a private transfer back to your hotel.

Booked this for my friends 60th Birthday and was delighted with the experience at Burj Al Arab. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and respectful and went out of their way to make this a very special occasion with extras including a birthday cake. It is a beautiful building with decoration which is breathtaking. The only disappointment was the transfers. They told us the pick up time and then arrived 15mins early and kept calling us to leave early. The pick up time they arranged didn't work as they hadn't allowed enough time, we hadn't finished main course, so we ended up letting the driver go and having to pay extra for a taxi home. You need to do better with organising timing for this experience.
Simply amazing, a must do whilst in Dubai.
Be ware folks, this is a Grand Viator Ripoff. The actual price of the 4 course dinner at Burj AlArab restaurant in Dubai is UAED 650.00/person which amounts to US 178.08/person at a conversion rate of 3.65. Viator advertises and charges 340.00/person which is 161,92 over the restaurant's advertised price. This in no way is a Guaranteed Low Price that Viator claims rather it is a Grand Viator Ripoff.
This dinner was an elegant and fun experience for all of us. Burj Al-Arab hotel is in the part of the town where most high end entertainment takes place, which makes the drive there a little longer during Islamic weekend which is Friday and Saturday. Both the hotel and restaurant are beatifully decorated. The food is absolutely spectacular despite the limited menu included in this package. Though be prepared for the high priced menu if you plan to pair your dinner with wine.
This is an incredibly beautiful building. The detail in the decoration of the hotel is breathtaking. Although the restaurant is very exclusive, the staff are very engaging and it's easy to just relax and enjoy your meal. The food was exceptional, but just be aware of the drinks prices especially the wine !!
