The food is average. You pay normally Dhs. 160 for such quality and spread these days. So, the extra price is charged because of the fact that you are seated in Emirates Palace Hotel, nothing more, nothing less. One visit is enough to satisfy your urge to enjoy food in Emirates Palace.

My family stayed at the Emirates Palace Hotel for three nights and enjoyed their breakfast buffet each morning. The setting is stunning, the selection amazing and the service superb.

As we were in Abu Dhabi just for the day, we felt we should treat ourselves to lunch here. The buffet and the service were truly excellent, and the price was quite reasonable, considering the environment. Lunch here is a really good excuse to see the interior of this edifice, which we were told is the most expensive building in... More

A good buffet restaurant with a choice of offerings but I am not sure if it is the best in Abu Dhabi. Venues across the road or on the other end of the town have much better choice ,ambience and space. I wonder if it was not at the Emirates Palace , will it get the reviews it does.

Le Vendome is the buffet restaurant inside the Emirates Palace Hotel. Very expensive and elegant - and while the range of food is wide, much of the allure is being inside the hotel, itself, which is over the top. The buffet is known for sprinkling gold flakes on its famous chocolate cake and on its cappuccino. The dinner buffet offered... More

Visiting Abu Dhabi with my mother in-law, I think a meal in Emirates Palace is a must:))) we were spoiled with healthy, fresh, beautifully prepared dishes. The smoked fish, chicken were super fresh, the main course choices were great. Chocolate cake with fresh cream and raspberry jam.... Ooohhhh. We could not sit outside due to the sandstorm, but the view... More

There is no way to put to words how amazing this place is - I thought it was pretty affordable considering how much food you can eat and how awesome it is. Everything is nicely done and put together, the waiters are all nice and respectful, there is absolutely no way you can find a better restaurant than this one.... More

wow! If your tired of the usual carb garbage you've found a home. Super service, tons of non carb choices, yes they do have fabulous breads, but such a wonderful array of unique fruits, vegetables, meats and cereals. I could go on and on. Oh, and did I mention a truly helpful staff, the chef stops by to see if... More
