After being seated and then ignored for 20 minutes, I finally left when I saw a roach crawling next to the table. Don't eat here!

We had the Barramundi fish and were very disappointed. The fish was obviously overcooked and dried, the rice did not have any taste...but the price was exagerated. We then thought to improve the situation with the dessert and we went for the cheesecake. No, the waiter did not want to serve it to us because he had to cut the... More

It's hard to find a place in Abu Dhabi where you can have a wine with your meal hotel in a smoke free venue. You can get this at Jones which is what keeps a lot of people coming back. The food is extremely overpriced for what you get and the quality varies from average to poor at times. Have... More

Four of us ate dinner here on a Saturday night. The place was empty, so we suspect it is moreof a lunch place. We each had different sandwiches, all of which were good. Nice interior. Good service. Had to stick with water, as they don't serve Coke or Pepsi, only some non-diet organic soft drinks. All in all, a decent... More

Popped into my local Jones for lunch today. A lot of customers, and not a lot of staff to be seen. We ordered fish and chips for two people and asked to ensure that the batter was crispy as this has been an issue before. The food arrived, the batter was slightly crispy on top, but too thick and spongy... More

A must try in Abu Dhabi. It is stylish, elegantly decorated and offers a nice variety of dishes. Usually I love to come here for breakfast. All their dishes are delicious and their coffee is super.

While staying at the Oryx, I was pleased to find Jones right around the corner. I had dinner there several times during my stay. No matter what I chose, the quality was excellent. Service paralleled the food quality to combine for a great dining experience every time.
