If I put on weight during my stay at Yas Viceroy, I'm blaming the staff of Origins! Both breakfast and dinner offered such an extensive buffet range that the temptations to go back were way too great for mortal man! Seriously, everything was very fresh, beautifully presented and there really were lots of healthy options.

Been to the place with group on voucher for a get together party with normal expectations . But the experience was absolutely amazing in terms of the location food and quality of personalized service. The buffet is spreaded around the restaurant with great choice and friendly chefs . Still the best part is the view of the race course from... More

We went there with my colleagues and had an excellent time this Ramadan for iftar. The view is nice and lighting gave it a modern look and feel. Food selection was excellent and all of us enjoyed it !

I couldn't have asked for a better breakfast spread.The breakfast alone would get me back to the Yas Viceroy, if nothing else.

The experience was incredibly marvelous, fantastic and very accomodating staff. I had a farewally party with my colleagues and tasted a variety of food choices.

Dear Aleksandra C, We are sorry to hear that your experience was not up to satisfaction. We do certainly honor the entertainer offer but unfortunately per guest served in the outlet, complimentary or not, we are still liable to pay the taxes to the government of Abu Dhabi.

Went for brunch with firends and had a great time. There is a good selection of live cooking stations ranging from fresh tempura to steaks grilled ot your liking.
