UAE’s highest restaurant, 1484 By Puro, is scheduled to open for guests on 1 October.

1484 By Puro is the latest venture of PURO, an independent dining concept with two existing restaurants at Al Marjan Island and the Jais Viewing Deck Park.

Located on the top of the UAE’s highest peak Jebel Jais, the restaurant is named for its height of 1,484m above sea level.

A part of the venue will feature ceiling-to-floor glass windows, which will provide views of the peaks and valleys of the Hajar mountains.

The restaurant will offer breakfast dishes such as Eggs Benedict, traditional shakshuka, S’Mores pancake topped with marshmallow cream and maple syrup, and Banana Boat Granola with yoghurt, berries, raw honey and almonds.

The lunch and dinner menu will include calamari fritti, wasabi shrimp and Korean fried chicken. The main courses will include fish and chips, duck Confit, braised beef ribs and pan-fried seabass.

RAK Hospitality Holding CEO Alison Grinnell said: “Jebel Jais is one of the most popular landmarks in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, offering visitors a host of bucket-list adventures that guarantee memorable experiences.

“With the opening of 1484 by Puro at the Jebel Jais Welcome Center, visitors can now enjoy an all-encompassing experience at the standalone destination that is the Jais Adventure Peak, home to thrilling adventure attractions such as the Jebel Jais Flight, Jais Sky Maze and the Jais Sky Tour.”

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, 1484 By Puro will implement strict measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its guests.

These include a maximum seating capacity of 76 guests, sanitary equipment and the adoption of the necessary distancing and hygiene measures as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centres for Disease Control (CDC).
