There is an abundance of great afternoon tea experiences in Dubai, but this one is sure to leave you feeling on top of the world! From its lofty position on the 52nd floor of Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, the Observatory Bar & Grill gives you 360-degree, panoramic views over Dubai Marina, Dubai Harbour, and Palm Jumeirah. Just wow!

Soak up the panorama while enjoying your tea and treats, indulging in a selection of sumptuous savoury, and sweet bites. Anything from a classic scone with honey jam, raspberry jam, mascarpone cream, and butter, to salmon tartar on black crostini topped with olive oil pearls; free range egg and truffle mayonnaise sando; cured veal ham, baby gherkin butter, and mustard sandwiched between a soft Parisian bun, and more mouth-watering delicacies await.

Make sure you end on a sweet note; with a variety of treats to dive into, such as gold berry tartlet; basil strawberry cheesecake; white chocolate and vanilla custard; as well as French macaroons. 

It’s all served with a choice of premium artisan tea; just to name a few – Royal Breakfast Black tea, Royal Darjeeling Black tea, 1001 Nights Black Tea, Moroccan Nights 

Chamomile Breeze Infusion, Earl Grey Grand Bleu Black tea, and many more. Or you could make it an afternoon to remember and wash it all down with a glass of bubbly.
