FANTASTIC SERVICE AND FOOD

This was a real experience. The staff and the food were amazing. Ameir looked after us at our table and could not be more attentive without being pushy. We all had steak and it was cooked to perfection. Cannot fault it but it was costly.

Visited Marco Pierre White as a solo diner, and had the whole place to myself for my ninety minute visit. The staff were very hospitable and personable, the food was excellent, and when I said I liked the little Yorkshire pudding that my steak came with, one of the waiters went to the kitchen and brought me a complimentary bowl...

We went to MPW to celebrate our anniversary and had such a lovely night. We were greeted by name; I was given a cushion to make my seat more comfy; we were given complimentary delicious bread and flavoured butter and the tuna & watermelon tartare to start; our waiter was super patient with me as I asked him a gazillion...

I absolutely love MPW Steakhouse and would rate it over The Meat Co. Let's be perfectly clear, this is an expensive restaurant, but the food is fabulous. Just like The Meat Co, the prices are for you meat and your meat only. You order (and pay for) your sides separately, which is fine, as long as you realise before the... More

After reading other reviews about the restaurant was really looking forward to trying out this place. On first impressions, the restaurant looks great and the staff are very friendly, knowledgable and ave been trained very well - this is something that you don't see in every restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Starters were ordered and these looked and tasted very good.... More

FABULOUS food, especially the truffle mayonnaise! Enjoyed every mouthful, except the triple cooked chips - Heston does these better! It's pricey, but a great treat if you are serious about your steak! Arjay was a superb waiter, supported by a very capable and professional team.

Went for a business early dinner, was a perfect setup with the starters of Crab Cake and Smoked Salmon, presented perfectly and tasted well too. The main course steaks were as good as it gets and were fulfilling, the highlight was the caramel toffee desert which was delicious to end up and grt evening. highly recommended .

Slow service, Steak was good but the triple cooked chips were warm and soggy,tasted as though the cooking fat needed changing and the vegtables were overcooked. This was the most expensive meal of our holiday and really did not live up to all the hype of Marco Pierre Whites fine dinning. Very disappointed. It needs a quality check.

The atmosphere is relaxing. Service is below average comparing to any other classy steakhouse. They served us a yumy complementary 'little' dish: tuna with a sauce of watermelon juice. We ordered a Chateaubriand; which was served alone, just the meat on the plate. Side dishes are poor in quantity comparing to price. Food is delicious but it's not rich for... More
