Scenic & good cuisine

We had a nice brunch. Liked the place for the beautiful views of F1 race track and surroundings from this restaurant. They have both indoor n outdoor seatings. Food was good with quite variety. Nothing went wrong. Good staff too.

We love the Friday Brunch at Origins. We have tried many of the brunches over the last few years in Abu Dhabi and always return to the Viceroy. Food is excellent, a lot of variety, ambience is great, one of the best views in Abu Dhabi overlooking the F1 track, which always impresses our visitors. The DJ is great, always... More

We ate here during our stay at the Yas Viceroy. Since there wasn't many options to go for lunch on Sunday as most restaurants on the island open in the evening we decided to have lunch at Origins. Good ambience overlooking the tracks. They have an extensive buffet for breakfast and lunch.

We came here for the Easter brunch and had a marvelous time. There was a great buffet, lots of champagne and great activities for the kids. Lots of meal stations and various desserts. The staff was friendly, the d.j. was awesome and we will definitely be back next year!

Lovely food and ever helpful Sri Lankan chef. Don't bother with the drinks package if you like wine though as the red and white are not great quality.

We've eaten in origins a couple of times this week and have to say its average. The food us mass produced and it's full of people over indulging purely because they can eat as much add they like! If you like buffets then you'll like this restaurant. We may go back but probably more out of convenience than choice!

The Origins at Viceroy is absolutely fantastic. Without a doubt, the best buffet in town. Endless variety, remarkable quality. Veranda seating makes the experience even better, right in front of the race track. I have tried several buffet options in Abu Dhabi and the Origins at Viceroy is the best, an outstanding buffet.
