My Husband arranged the evening a birthday surprise, which was spoiled by the restaurant telephoning while we were driving there and asking us if we were still coming. The call was taken on hands-free speakers as my husband was driving. The food was not very hot and the 3 times fried chips were very poor. We didn't stop for a... More

Small and intimate place. The steak was great. I ordered "Blackmore 100% Fullblood Wagyu Beef" and it was very good. However, the portion is so small (100 g) that I ordered twice the size! The "Loaded Baked Potato soup" was good. The "Curried Black Cod,“ as a starter, was a disappointment, a bad choice and very small quantity. Service was... More

Very small restaurant. The food is of excellent quality, probably some of the best steak I've eaten in the Middle East. However, the portion sizes of the sides are just harsh - very small and an almost thimble-sized portion of mash just doesn't cut it. Increase the sizes 50% of the sides and this would have been a 5/5. Service... More

Had dinner here recently, mainly prompted by reviews. On the positive, the service was very good, staff couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Starter was lovely. Liked the decor in the restaurant. Lovely bottle of red wine. However the evening was let down by the following points. Don't know if it was the acoustics in the restaurant or where... More

Nice set up. We were there for dinner after business meeting. Venue is nice and welcome is warm. The menu is correct with all the various meet cuts and quality you would expect from a steakhouse. Wine selection is good. One little disappointment: i am a rare meet lover. I have specifically requested my cut "blue" and any decent steakhouse... More

This is my second visit to Marco Pierre steak house which the first one was few years ago, I've ordered the tenderloin (medium) with sides and ended it with dates pudding. I can say it is one of the best steak I had in UAE, the steak came perfectly done as requested and had a great flavor that you don't... More

Ruth's Chris prices for non Ruth's cuts of steak. We arrived here with reservations and were quickly seated. The place was busy. Nice decor and atmosphere. Service was very good at all times. We ordered the lamb and tenderloin. Typical middle east rip off of paying over sixty dollars for a ten dollar bottle of wine. The lamb was a... More

One of the best steaks I ate in Abu Dhabi and at a comparable price with other steakhouses such as meatco which are of less standing..... Would definitely go back there just for the steak, which came rightly cooked for each one of us. We took the shrimp appetizer.... The bloody mary sorbet it had brings an interesting taste but...
