Excellent Breakfast

Lots of variety in food. The busiest times seems to be on a weekend between 9:00 to 10:00. A bit of a queue to get yourselves seated. If there something you cant find on the breakfast counters, you could always ask the chef to prepare it for you. During our visit there were no HASH BROWNIES, we... read more

Such a good choice of food, I went with friends for brunch and there was something for everyone. The drinks were free flowing and the service was incredible. Definitely good value for money.

Origins is the principal, central restaurant in Yas Viceroy Hotel, the food diversity is almost unbelievable and you’d better be hungry cause you’ll leave the diet well behind. Breakfast is in reality a brunch (it was recently elected top brunch in Abu Dhabi), with an impressive array of choices. Try to book the hotel with breakfast included. However, if you... More

Breakfast, lunch, dinner is superb but I love the idea that once a week they redo the place and have carts which provide outstanding street food. Great, great idea.

My husband and I, residents in Abu Dhabi, tried Origins on a Friday evening. We had forgotten that Origins does an extensive and elegant Friday buffet (that's next for us!), and for a moment worried about the quality of two great buffets only hours apart. What were we thinking!!! This is the Yas Viceroy! Nothing is less than the best... More

Great selection of food. A children's play room with attendants and their own buffet. Drinks packages are fantastic and the DJ finishes the afternoon off nicely

The brunch itself was amazing – a complete extravagant and delicious affair worth a visit all on it’s own. The food from all the restaurants was beyond superb and my partner and I both rolled out very happy we had skipped breakfast. All the food was delicious and the staff from each station was so helpful in explaining their offerings... More
