The food may not be out of this world, but the views are certainly stellar from the world's highest restaurant (442m) in the Burj Khalifa. Book far ahead to enjoy the views and international fare with an emphasis on seafood.
The per-person minimum spend in the restaurant is Dhs500 at lunch and Dhs680 for dinner (Dhs880 for window table). If that's too dear, head one floor up to the lounge level where minimums are Dhs200 for breakfast, Dhs420 for afternoon tea and Dhs320 for dinner. No children under 10 are allowed. Dress nicely. The entrance is through the Armani Hotel.
