first-ever survey of the restaurants, nightspots and attractions in the glistening oasis, which features a lot more than the world's tallest building (though, the Burj Khalifa's stunning views were voted Most Popular and awarded Best Appeal in the attractions category). The survey tracked the opinions of 5,751 local consumers and rated 484 eateries, 71 nightlife destinations and 37 tourist sites.
So, other than the 2,716.5-ft.-tall skyscraper, who came out on top? The Fairmont Hotel's Spectrum on One was voted the city's best restaurant, earning a near-perfect 29 on our 30 point scale. That eatery was also awarded top honors in the Service category, while seafood-centric Pierchic won for Top Decor and Pakistani eatery Barbecue Delights was named the Most Popular.

The town's notable nightlife arena also produced some winners, with dance club 360 Degrees being named Most Popular and Irish Village scoring top ratings for Atmosphere. In addition to the famous Burj Khalifa, the Palm Jumeirah’s Aquaventure also impressed visitors. The water park won Top Facilities and Service in the attractions category.
