I've had dinner here twice. Both were extraordinary. Honestly, almost impossible to describe the quality of the service, food, atmosphere, views, etc. And if you are a fan of classical music you can even make a reservation for dinner on one of the evenings there's a concert in the atrium of the museum and enjoy the sounds from below.

Been fortunate enough to have dined at a number of quality restaurants over the years and have to say the experience at IDAM is second to none. From the welcome, setting, service and of course the food the place oozes style and quality that is not easy to replicate (many try and fail). As you would expect the menu has... More

We visited The Museum of Islamic Art which is a fantastic museum. After 2 hours looking at the different amazing art we took the elevator to the 4.th ground and visited The Alain Ducasse Resturant, Idam. The service is fabulous, the food amazing and the atmosphere is magic. We spent 3 hours and had the most amazing lunch ever.

We had dinner at Idam specially prepared for members of the Culture Pass combined with a short tour to some of the permanent museum exhibitions. West Bay at night is always an excellent setting. And the food... Very-very interesting mixture of Middle East specialties with a French touch. Best of all the main dish, cannon of lamb with smoked aubergines.... More
