Having a lot of fun and a great dinner

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... read more

I dined at the meat co earlier this week and really enjoyed the meal and service. We sat outside where there was a wonderful waterfront view and glimpse of the illuminated Grand Mosque. We ordered the skewered lamb and prime rib, both of which arrived perfectly done. The lamb was ok, but the prime rib was spectacular. This was followed... More

We went here as a table of 5 on Valentines day as we were on business in Dubai. The service was exceptionally slow and not very efficient. The waiter was however friendly. The big disappointment was the quality of the meal. If you are going to charge the prices this establishment does and put South African dishes on the menu,... More

Not the overcooked slab of meat you'll find at many restaurants. This place really knows how to treat their meat. Amazing food - worth the relatively long drive out to the Souk Qaryat-Al-Beri.

I visited Meat Co with a colleague for a change from the restaurants in Shangri-La restaurants where we were staying on business. I paid AED450 for a very average meal (the prices were not on the menu). The steak was ok and cooked well but no where near worth the money. I have no problem paying top dollar for top... More

The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the staff are extremely welcoming. They have a very good wine list and the food was flawless. Will definitely keep this restaurant in mind on our next visit.

We were staying at the Shangri-la and having wandered round the souk, we decided to eat here instead of back at the hotel. We were seated at a table right by the window so that we had a nice view across to the mosque. Service was prompt and friendly. (We hadn't realised it's a franchise of South African origin, it...

This is a South African steakhouse that offers steak, albeit a bit pricey, in an ultra relaxed environment. There are some impressive steaks on the menu, including a Blackmore Grade 9+. But there are also some more modest but very satisfying options. On this visit I had the New Zealand grass fed sirloin - firm as a sirloin should be,... More

Following a huge Christmas lunch at the adjacent Traders Hotel we decided that steak and chips would be the perfect Boxing Day dinner. Three of us had rib eye steak with one beef skewer plus 3 pints of lager one bottle of water and an orange juice. The steak was to die for, which was how I felt on receiving... More

Compared to other steak houses in Abu Dhabi The Meat Company offers a relaxed environment. If you are celebrating a special occasion the staff will grab their drums and other instruments and tune in to a song. You can sit both outdoors and indoors. The outdoor seating offers a great view of the Grand Mosque.They have a good selection of... More
