Fantastic steak, bit pricey

Enjoyed a meal here whilst staying at the Fairmont Hotel, Abu Dhabi. Took a beautiful walk along the waterfront to get to the restaurant in the lovely Souk.

The Meat Co is a usual stop for us in Abu Dhabi. The service is amazing, the staff is very friendly, and the meat is top notch. For a delicious meal take your pick and try any of the following: the chateaubriand medium rare, the marinated lamb skewer, or the wagyu burger. A bit pricey but well worth it.

Beautiful view on the water, excellent service (thanks to Sinfree), and delicious food. My husband was craving a good steak so after doing some research online, we decided to give The Meat Co a try. I'm really happy we did! I am not a big steak eater because I like mine more on the well-done side and many times a... More

That's my favorite place when it comes to Steak. Juicy, tender and delicious way of cooking. Great staff and service. They really know how to celebrate birthdays.... a bit embarrassing but unique.

The view against the window at sunset is incredible. The food is always delicious. Even vegetarians can find some pretty tasty and sophisticated dishes here. The meat, however, is most wonderful! My husband and I love eating here on special days. The staff is always very nice and very keen to ensure the experience is top notch.

It's a nice stake house not great but not bad at all. Located in a souq of shangri-la, two levels restrant with a great overlooking view on a grand mosque and a chanel. Almost all the staff are southafricans, so if you have a birthday they will sing a national songs with drams. It's quiet noisy but fun I love... More

The food was good but must say gets a bit expensive when you need to order side dishes to spice the plate up a bit from just having two thing on it. The service on the other hand was very friendly and attentive. The view the place offers is great and will defenetly go back when the weather is cooler... More
