The UAE’s highest restaurant to open in Ras Al Khaimah

RAK Leisure, the lifestyle subsidiary of RAK Hospitality Holding, will launch 1484 by Puro on October 1, 2020. 

The restaurant located atop the Jais Adventure Peak is named for its height of 1,484 metres above sea level and is the UAE’s highest restaurant offering.

Located next to the Jais Adventure Centre, 1484 by Puro offers guests views of the peaks and valleys of the Hajar mountains. The restaurant is the latest venture by PURO, an independent dining concept with two existing restaurants at Al Marjan Island and at the Jais Viewing Deck Park.

1484 by Puro welcomes diners to try breakfast dishes such as Eggs Benedict, traditional Shakshuka and more. Desserts include the S’Mores Pancake topped with marshmallow cream and maple syrup, as well as the Banana Boat Granola with yoghurt, berries, raw honey and almonds.

Heartier options are offered for lunch and dinner, including Calamari Fritti, Wasabi Shrimp and Korean Fried Chicken amongst others. Diners can move onto a selection of main courses ranging from Fish and Chips, Duck Confit, Braised Beef Ribs and Pan-Fried Seabass. 

Alison Grinnell, CEO of RAK Hospitality Holding says: “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.”

The venue will operate in line with safety and hygiene measures, recommended by internationally recognised bodies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centres for Disease Control (CDC), as well as will adhere to federal directives. Stringent measures include a maximum seating capacity of 76 guests, sanitary equipment and the adoption of the necessary distancing measures.
