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 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.

Walked over from the Fairmont Bab al Bahr since they didn't have any availability at Frankie's and didn't want to go to Marco Pierre Restaurant, nothing against it but been to the one in Dubai way too many times. The Meat Co. is perfectly located in the souk with great views of the Ritz and the Mosque. Staff are very... More
