Redefining fine dining

Rich, sumptuous flavours, unparalleled taste and texture, and a truly remarkable setting.

Al Mahara, 'The Oyster Shell' in Arabic, doesn’t just tantalise your palate; it’s a dining experience that will stimulate all your senses. The stunning floor to ceiling aquarium inside the restaurant sets the scene for a meal where only the best will do. Sink into the soft seats and be mesmerised by the world of colourful sea life swimming beside your table, while our team of award-winning chefs prepare you something very special.

Attention to detail is something we particularly pride ourselves on at Al Mahara. Our selection of fine wines perfectly compliment the mouth-watering seafood, and you’ll enjoy only the freshest, most delicious ingredients in each and every one of our dishes.
