Our dinner was gr8, food was awesome and service was just excellent. Guys cutting the meat of yr choice in front of u, they really know what they're doing and it shows these chefs love their jobs. Multinational and multi language crowd, with live dance performances, beautiful dancers, I recommend to try beef with pineapple !

we all love it here -the novelty of being served at the table with a variety of meats, salads, fruit, cake and cocktails. Tip: don't eat all day! in Le Meridien in Abu Dhabi by the sea/marina - must give it a go!

It is an unusual restaurant, kinda buffet style for starters and desert. Meat is the big thing here and boy do they do it well, waiters will come to your table with different joints of meat and carve it there in front of you, many differant type of meat, ribeye, fillet, lamb, chicken, to mention just a few, it's not...

Visited the restaurant because it was recommended by a local friend. Dinner is all inclusive of "caipirinhas" as many as you want... and they come fast. The meat is well prepared with lots of variety to chose from Unfortuately due to pork restrictions - was missing the famous LINGUICA PORTUGUESA y CALABRESE ( guess I have to go back to... More

I was at the Yacht Club Friday a Brunch and younger also allowed to eat from Chamas, which I did. The beef being cut off the screwer was amazing the best I have tasted. I also gad some baked banana, which was delicious. The tables were full, lots of people eating and drinking.

I'm a little biased on this once, since I've lived in Brazil, but its a pretty good rodizio restaurant. For those who don't know what that means, they give you a little disc, red on one side, green on the other. Once its green, they keep bringing you various cuts of grilled meats. Turn over to red, when stuffed. The... More

Music, lights and service TOP of Abu Dhabi. Inside the Intercontinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi, here you can eat all the best meats prepared by chefs. Very tasty, with a large choise of entrèes, I suggest to eat just meat because it's wonderful. Expensive but it deserves that money. A+++
