Surprisingly great food

We had never heard of this restaurant and only came here because it was in the entertainer. The service and food were both excellent. We had smoked salmon loin, mozzarella salad, fillet steak with fois grad and fillet of lamb. Every dish looked and tasted exquisite. We will definitely return.

I've been considering not writing a review for Sardinia for some time as having now been there about 10 times over the last couple of years I see it as my own private restaurant, as there's never any other customers there! I joke with the wife that I've exclusively paid for the entire restaurant to ourselves... the food is like... More

Odd and hilarious, bizarre food, a real change, and a great experience if you want something altogether different - a brave choice, but you won't regret it.

With a global following among royalty and celebs, you’re sure to be dining in great company when you book a table at Sardinia Fine Dining Restaurant. Sardinia is not simply about the food – it’s about the overall dining experience My advise to try the 10 courses tasting menu . for sure I will be back.

One stand out weakness of this place is that it doesn't seem to have any customers. We ate there alone and lots of other reviewers seem to have had the same experience. We had the tasting menu, which we thought was overpriced and sometimes went over the top. Blue cheese milkshake? Lots of gelatine dishes, like the rather odd rhubarb... More

We embarked on the 12 course tasting menu ..... I can happily say all 12 courses were beautifully presented and the service staff were impeccable: present but not intrusive. However the major let down was the food itself - most of the 12 courses were cold pre-plated' dishes. But some of them felt so devoid of flavour I wondered whether... More

Firstly, we had the unfortunate experience of being the only customers over the lunchtime period, which left the place lacking in atmosphere. That, however, is the end of the negatives as the food and service provided distraction at a level which ensured that we barely noticed the lack of other customers. Each course, on delivery, came with a brief and... More

This is an attempt at an el-bulli style restaurant in Abu Dhabi. The location is wrong, part of a middling-ish health complex, overlooking the car park. The restaurant is well-furnished with large, well-spaced tables. The menu an ambitious 3-course menu with many 'releve' courses in between. The dishes were hit and miss, Tomato with inject your own Balsamic let down... More

We visited this restaurant at the end of May and it took our breath away. We struggled to find it initially as it's hidden away in the Abu Dhabi health & fitness club. However we were warmly welcomed on arrival although I'm sad to say there was only one other table at the time. Maybe it was because it was... More
