This is a surprisingly large restaurant set out over 2 floors. If eating in the evening when it is cooler try to get a table outside on the upper balcony not only is it a little more intimate and certainly quieter but also you have the benefit of fantastic views of the great mosque. Decor is smart and principally dark... More

Loved the place, the food is better than the Dubai branches. The burgers we had where really value for money. The views are splendid from the top floor. The waiters are pleasant and informative.

This is a case of keeping expectations low. There was nothing wrong with this place - I just expected more. The service was ok, a bit quirky which I like. But the meal (ribs) was quite average - I expected something special - but it was a bit tough, not fantastically flavoursome, just average.

Went here for dinner last night and arrived without reservations which was fine, as the place is huge. I've eaten at the Meat Co. numerous times in Bahrain and I'm so disappointed to see this franchise going upscale and trying to compete with the likes of Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Management needs to give their heads a shake and walk into... More

Once again "The Meat Company" has amazed and satisfied both the palate and the appetite. This time I enjoyed a New Zealand 300 gram filet which was cooked to perfection and the taste of the meat was incredible. I enjoyed every bite as much as I ever had eating a delicious and juicy steak. The atmosphere is great and the... More

This is a lovely place, quite casual and the setting outside is just wonderful. There were 4 of us in the group and everyone had a lovely meal, the staff were lovely. There were plenty of things on the menu to suit everyone, every course was just lovely.

I had dinner at The Meat Company on Friday night, 28 March 2014. The food was good and the service fine. However, the prices that they charge are ridiculous (!!). How they can justify their prices I have no idea. AED 83 (USD 23) for a glass of red wine (seriously!!). And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Even... More

We were seated on the upper floor inside area of the restaurant. Food and service were good but nothing amazing.

For our last meal in Abu Dhabi we decided to eat here, the menu looked great so we gave it a go. We decided to eat inside as it was a little windy outside. The fact that people were eating outside meant that the access door was constantly in use and never really stayed fully shut so there was an... More

I ordered Barbecue Beef Ribs (NZ) during my visit. It was sumptuous and juicy and the portion was really big -- two huge slabs of it! Yum! It came with a side of mashed potatoes which was really buttery good! (You can choose to have fries instead.) The price, however, was just too steep. The ambiance is okay. Not entirely... More
