Can't fault it for service and choice, well worth the extra for breakfast if not included in your room price. Not very busy but we came in Ramadan.

The food selection at their brunch is varied and there is something for everyone. The seafood selections is probably one of the best in Abu Dhabi, with an oyster bar and grilled lobster. There is a lot of food in glasses and small containers, a trick to the eye as most of it was bland and lacked variety in consistency... More

Really disappointed this time around, very basic food. Some of it was not hot. It's a shame when you first visit a restaurant and it's great then you return and it's not so good.

Breakfasted here five days and very happy with choice and variety, plenty to choose from. Also, a pleasantly bright room - it helped to wake us each day!

Chaotic, underwhelming furniture, and a poor selection of foods. During the milder months, sitting outside is much nicer - better furniture, but with almost no service to speak of - queuing to get a table, and then not really getting a western friendly breakfast... Unfortunately, this is the only choice in this hotel.

We went to the evening buffet here and asked for a table outside. Wow! Our table was perfect overlooking the track, a brilliant view. The food was really good, especially the meat station which even managed to beat the teenage son who is a bottomless pit normally. We would definitely recommend dining here but make sure you get an outside... More

Having lived in the UAE for approximately a year now, I must say that the Friday brunch at Origins is the best that we have visited so far. The food is of the highest quality - everything from lobsters, caviar & oysters to beef wellington, dim sum & sushi. There really is something for everyone. I found the selection of... More

I have mentioned this on my review of Yas Viceroy Hotel. It deserves its own mention, as my partner says she feels it is the best buffet restaurant she has eaten in.
