I was more than happy to return to Friday brunch after being here several times with family. The service was wonderful as was the atmosphere. As a pescaterian I was pleased with the amount of choice available to me as sometimes this is limited, although not the case with Friday brunch here. Options included sushi, lobster, bream etc - plenty... More

This is a great hotel and the breakfast is extensive and really very good! If it is not too hot you can sit outside watching the marina and a part of the circuit...The food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful.

Lovely place and atmosphere, excellent service, many selections. What ever dish I had, tasted nice. Also the sweets at the end, I couldn't select so I tried all of them. Today I had only yogurt, I guess I took some weight......

We live locally and have generally enjoyed taking our visiting family and friends to the Brunch on fridays. Unfortunately for about the last 4-5 visits we have been very dissappointed with the level of service and the general feel of the brunch. We arrived a little late and expected to breeze into the brunch, but stood in queue patiently. We... More

We didn't eat breakfast at home. So we arrived in Yas Viceroy with empty stomachs. I was so glad to see a lot of dishes to choose from, and all of the food served were delectable. What made my kids and I even happier was the ice cream counter, where we picked vanilla and chocolate flavors topped with marshmallows and... More

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.
