Perched high up on the 27th storey of the Burj Al Arab, within the flat overhang looking out across the gulf, sits Al Muntaha. Accessible only through a private elevator, panoramic views on the ride up prepare diners for the "top-of-the-world" feeling the restaurant effuses. Arguably dated decor does not detract from the restaurant’s stunning position; neither do the stylish modern-European dishes that are plated here. Window seats are definitely preferable for the Gulf, Palm and Jumeirah views. Tuesdays through Sundays sees a musical duet underscore proceedings, as opposed to Monday’s more hushed ambience.
