The setting is an impressive one from the moment you arrive, with golden columns and exotic exteriors that draw you in. Once inside the restaurant the warm hospitality is evident. During the day you can enjoy a family-friendly buffet lunch with scenic views, featuring dishes such as fattoush and grilled meats, while in the evening you can experience a candlelit dinner as you take in the dancing lights of the city below. Staff are happy to provide something special for birthdays, including a chorus of ‘happy birthday’ making it a great spot for special occasions.
Despite being located inside the world’s first seven star hotel, this restaurant forgoes the fine dining feel in favour of a warm and family-friendly vibe. That’s not to say the menu isn’t impeccable – it is – it just means you don’t need to compromise on taste when dining with little ones. The daytime dress code is smart casual, switching to smart elegant for the evening.
Whether you’re lucky enough to be staying at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah or just dropping in for a meal to remember, Al Iwan is the place to go for authentic Arabic cuisine with plenty of choice. Reservations should be made in advance.
