Enjoy the grilled seafood starter. Excellent for sharing too. Price is on the high side, but excellent service and good food.

We have bee dining here since our first visit to the shangri la in jan 2010- particularly fantastic if you can eat outside on the terrace overlooking the views of the Mosque at night. Fantastic menu and wine list and the food when it arrives does not disappoint. Great to eat here early as the restaurant can fill up with... More

Ate here as part of our stay in Abu Dhabi. All of the restaurants in the Souk are quite expensive but our experience was the food was really good. Food here is distinctly average, this would have been OK if we had been paying an average price, but we were not. Better restaurants close by. Try the Meat Co or... More

This place is in the Souk at the Shangri La complex. Their seafood soup was the closest we've had to a very special dish from Sicily. The seafood was cooked perfectly and you could tell it was fresh.

Nice friendly service. Had the 85aed lunch special, Caesar salad with excellent dressing, then red mullet with buttered broccoli and potato purée. Want a full dinner, and I'd go back.

The prices are good, the food is good but the menu is on the short side. The lasagna, the beef filet are two winners. I was not impressed with the pizza. They make their bread and it is the best in Abu Dhabi, I could make a meal out of that along. It's a good destination for food for sure.

Great Italian restaurant with attentive staff, very good food, nice cocktails and a great view on the marina. Highly recommendable. WE had buffalo mozzarella as a starter and homemade pasta as the main course. Good quality-price-level.
