We ate here twice whilst in Abu Dhabi and enjoyed both meals. The view at night time of the Mosque is special and adds atmosphere. The food is good, the choice of steaks is mind blowing, personally I wouldn't bother again wit the lobster tails, but just stick to the steak. The service both times was excellent, special note to...

The Meat Company is a must, not just for its location overlooking the Grand mosque, but for the fantastic steaks. A great family restaurant where the staff remember your name from previous visits and also your preference, to a romantic evening with a great bottle of South African Wine, this is a must for meat lover. We love to sit... More

My wife and I were originally looking to have Prime Rib, but this location no longer carries it. With this unfortunate loss, we decided to order a couple of different rib-eyes to compare the taste, the quality and the texture. The Livingstone Marble Score 7+ was simply incredible. It literally meted in our mouths and unfortunately made our other delicious... More

A very good restaurant with lovely view across the water to the Grand Mosque. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Food was very good, if relatively expensive. As the name suggests, the focus is on meat. We all had steaks with a variety of sauces and sides. All well-cooked to order. Desserts were great - especially the chocolate ones!

If you look for excellent meat, cooked to precision and well served then this restaurant is a "must"! Its location in Souq Qaryat offers a wonderful view of the Grand mosque in the background which is illuminated according to the moon at night! We chose steaks , of course, and tried the " marble" steak which was cooked exactly as... More

Eaten here twice now and both times very good. Friendly staff, great service, very good food, enjoyed by all of us. Also love the welcome black board on the table and the celebration singing and dancing, it really adds energy and atmosphere to the evening!

Simple menu - salmon or steak ... No challenge here. Menu of burgers and exotics for those who must have these things. The steak is not huge, but succulent and perfect. Usual problems with seating - if outdoor, will be with the smokers. So enjoy the a/c and get to taste your food.

I was amazingly surprised by this great steak house. I do love meat and the one they served me was just perfect. I asked for a medium-rare 200g Argentinean fillet with asparagus and mushrooms. At the end all the weiters brought me a chocolate cake for my birthday and they started playing the drums and singing traditional Afrikaans songs. Amazing!!... More
