1. Noire restaurant:
Noire, the French word for black, offers a dining experience where diners are, quite literally, kept in the dark.
Located in the Fairmont Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, the restaurant is completely pitch-black, with diners handed night vision goggles upon arrival. The menu is loaded with different options to choose from, and the logic is, since your vision is hindered, your taste is heightened.
To add to the package, 10 per cent of your bill will be donated to Sightsavers, an international charity that fights blindness across developing nations.
This one has to be, ahem, seen to be believed.
2. Al Mahara restaurant:
Located in the Burj Al Arab, Al Mahara restaurant is situated in the middle of a floor-to-ceiling aquarium.
Meaning ‘the oyster’ in Arabic, Al Mahara naturally serves up some of the best seafood in the city.
A great fishy tale to tell the folks back home, for sure.
Up on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa is Atmosphere, the highest restaurant in the world. Diners can enjoy fine fare and unparalleled views of the Dubai Fountain from 442 meters.
This restaurant goes, quite literally, on the top of our must-visit restaurants when family members visit.
