Situated in a small Souke in the Shangri-La hotel this is a great restaurant offering a large varied menu at reasonable prices for Abu Dhabi. We went for a light lunch and we were blown away by the size of the portions for the price paid, service was very efficient and the servers spent time talking to you about the... More

The location is simply amazing, you have a beautiful view of the Mosque just in front of you! We ordered a bottle of wine from the happy hour and some carpaccio for starter. The taste of the carpaccio was very nice even though a bit sweet compared to the carpaccios I have tried before. Unfortunately we found a piece of... More

From the welcome at reception to the attentive service throughout the evening, this was a fantastic experience. The quality of the cheferry was great and the wine list second to none. A real taste of African hospitality in the Middle East. Probably my favourite restaurant in Abu Dhabi.

My wife and I recently ate at The Meat Co and were pleasantly surprised. The food was perfectly prepared and the server, Nico, was perceptive, intelligent and professional. From the terrace, the views of the creek and Grand Mosque are nothing short of spectacular. Highly recommend!

The food was good. if you are a carnivore this place is heaven! Many cuts of meat, steaks and burgers from all over the world at a range of prices. If you have a birthday the staff will sing a traditional South african song all with drums and dancing!
