We ate in the MPW restaurant on the final night of our stay at The Fairmont hotel, and have to say that we felt the placed to be totally over-hyped. I ate a simple beetroot and goat's cheese salad plate to start, followed by grilled sea bass - both of which were OK, but, quite honestly, it was no better... More

I had the pleasure of trying the new menu recently. Something good has become even better as a result. With steaks being generally expensive, I was heartened to see some amazing beef prices on the newly launched menu. The usual high end grade 9 Cuts have been retained, but there is a range of more affordable quality options too. My... More

5 star service and meal but the only thing missing with this restaurant is a view. It is so close to the Grand Mosque and would of been a 6 star establishment if it took advantage of it's location. Still a very enjoyable experience.

You don't get Wagyu or Kobe meat at ordinary steak houses. And when we saw that the served both at Marco Pierre, our expectations we're quite high. But they nail it. Gentle and perfectly cooked, and served with high manners and skills. Really nice, luxourous and high class dining with a manager who really knows wines. A great place!

I had dinner at Marco Pierre White (at the Fairmont Hotel, Abu Dhabi) on Thursday evening, 16 April. The dinner was good and the ambience relaxing. We arrived early and took some photo's around the hotel, before moving on to dinner. I must say the wait staff are experts at upselling. “Sir, would you like a pre-dinner drink?” “And how... More

This was, quite possibly, the best steak I have ever had. My husband and I both had the pepper sauce as well, amazing. I would recommend the asparagus, but honestly, everything we had was amazing.
