We really enjoyed our visit to the palace. We went for the camel burger and it did not disappoint. It was a lovely building, very ornate and worth a look. It was nice eating in the beautiful surroundings, good value for money and good service. Better than many other places we visited during our stay in the Middle East.

This place is huge...cant believe that people lived here Not a fan of the dull brick red/brown colour. Very spacious and elite However its dwarfed by the skyscrapers outside

I've visited the hotel with my wife and son for lunch, and the overall experience was disappointing. Biggest negative point was the arrival to the hotel (by taxi): we had to queue for a security check, which is absolutely understandable. The security officer decided however that we couldn't enter because we didn't have a reservation. I've clearly seen other vehicles... More

Whilst I was in Abu Dhabi recently on business I visited the Palace for dinner. I must say the building can only be described as an amazing structure. I had dinner in the buffet restaurant and cannot complain about anything. The food was very good and well presented at a reasonable price. The building is huge and extremely richly decorated...
