............ but I noticed a lot of activity, with staff setting up for a new theme night: Street Food Around The World. What a good idea! Stalls were set up representative of simple yet very tasty cuisine from across the world. On this night, Mexican, American, Italian, Mongolian, Arabic and British fare was on offer (there might have been more,... More

The food choice and attentive staff were excellent. The restaurant felt a bit like a cheap cafeteria in terms of the tables and seating and even the table settings.

With a nice view to both the Yas Marina and the formula one race track, this restaurant offers a buffet as well as a selection of local and regional speciality dishes.

Ate here most days during our week stay at the Viceroy Hotel, they had slightly different themed nights, most noticeably the seafood night, which my husband absolutely loved, I don't eat seafood or fish, but was still able to find something that I could eat, our 2 children really didn't like anything on this particular night, so the very helpful...

Have brunched here 3 times and highly recommend. Tried a few others, but customer service is by far the best here. Wide selection of food and live cooking stations. Little tip , if going as a couple tell the staff when booking as can land up sat amongst the family section.

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
