I found out about this place through a friend. She invited me to the Jones' Jazz Night; where a starter, main and dessert would cost 110 AED. First we thought we would be presented with a set menu, however, we were happily surprised when we found out we could actually enjoy the full menu. I really enjoyed the food. As... More

Last weekend my family and I went to Jones the Grocer, hearing raving reviews, however it was a real let down. Portions were average sized and generally extremely overpriced. Waiters were friendly enough, however we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated, even though the restaurant was empty. The food also took forever to arrive and we grew frustrated.... More

We go at least once a week at John's for lunch. They have a small menu but you can eat healthy and light food and still enjoying a tasty meal. I like their grilled salmon and chicken burger. The staff is friendly and we really like chatting with the guy from Cameroon. He makes you feel really welcome which is... More

Jones the Grocer is fortunately in our Khalidiya neighborhood in Abu Dhabi, and we get to wander over every so often. Today, my 9 year-old son and I thought we would treat ourselves to the Jones Wagyu Burger for lunch, and as always, we are never disappointed. Service was fast, and the burgers were served as ordered (medium), resting between... More

Jones the Grocer was our lifesaver in Abu Dhabi. The hotel we stayed at next door did not have a good breakfast, and we ate here about five times (breakfast, lunch, late night) while in the area on business. Fresh, healthy ingredients, creative recipes and generous portions. Standouts were the pancakes with fig compote and goat's milk whipped cream, sandwiches... More

This is a great place to come when you've been in the UAE awhile and a feeling the need for more western-style foods. You can get things like chicken pot pie and Persian gulf fish sauteed in pistachios, along with classic sandwiches on good bread. French macaroons are delicious, too.

Really hard to find this branch of Jones the Grocer in Khalidia with their signage done in small font. However judging by the lunch time crowd on a Friday afternoon, the outlet seems to be well known and well liked. Nothing too much to complain about the food quality- but for the prices the portions are pretty small just like... More

You won't find anyhing better than this in Abu Dhabi.Here the brunch is awesome (any choice you make). Morevoer, fromages angle and products from italy (tartufo and pasta) are a cure-all.

Though I have eaten here many times, I find it difficult to rate this restaurant because it seems that the food and the service are rarely the same. The same menu item can taste different depending on the day and time you go there, and also on who prepared it. Service, too, can be erratic, ranging from first class to... More
