Pleasant deck but too many smokers inside

Unusual to find such a pork laden menu in Abu Dhabi. The food was very good but eat outside as the smoke inside is oppressive. Ate there twice and both times the staff were very helpful, the beers were cold and large and reasonably priced.

In an attempt to visit a few more restaurants new to us in Abu Dhabi before Ramadan descents upon us in a few weeks, we made reservations for a Saturday lunch at the Brauhaus located in the Beach Rotana Hotel. This will be a somewhat difficult review for me this time, as the service and wait time for our meal... More

The food is nice and I was personally expecting a bigger variety of German beers that unfortunately was not available, alternatives though were suitably recommended, Nothing special about the service, a little bit slow and waiters does not present whatever they put on the table, which ended up for some of us eating pork even if we don't do.

This place was quite a surprise for me as I hadn't expected to find something like this in Abu Dhabi. The food is good, just like real German food and is explained by the fact that there was a German chef. The beer is ok and worth a few glasses Go and visit if you get the chance, you won't... More
