Al Mahara Review
At Al Mahara the tables surround an impressive aquarium with a varied population of fish, and they also arrive in delicious sauces for your consumption. This establishment is the signature restaurant of the Burj Al-Arab, which means spending a lot of dirham—the jury is out on whether the food's worth the cost, but for many the atmosphere is the real draw. A prix fixe for AED 890 may be a good deal if you plan to order several courses.
