A nice restaurant on the beach of impressive Emirates compound, well apart from Hotel bonanza, quiet and romantic... Good food with nice dishes from the grill, a good wine list and a professional service... Wines a bit overpriced, excellent bread (homemade), nice location..

Nice gazebos on the beach with a view of the Emirates palace and its bay. Arabian mezze not particularly interesting, fish way over grilled, steak ok, desserts un-inventive ( had rhubarb crumble) Attentive service, pricewise on the high side

I ate here with 3 other colleagues while staying at the Emirates Palace. The atmosphere is amazing - Outdoors, on the beach, lit torches, beautiful. The food was delicious. I had the Arabic Roasted Chicken. At 170 AED (About $45+ USD), it needed to be fantastic and it was. The bread and dips were also excellent. Colleagues enjoyed their meals... More

Went here for dinner one evening - outdoor seating right on the beach - the ocean in front the majestic Emirates Palace in the background! Ordered their signature BBQ, the camel burger - different but very good! Good wine list and good service. We finished our dinner with the Emirates Palace signature cappuccino - you find it in the restaurant/cafe... More

The place is magical for couples, specially in winter & spring seasons. Food presentation is fine, food quality is standard. I liked mostly the romantic atmosphere. finally I guess it worth trying!

Perhaps the best word that can describe what was on my plate last night at this over rated restaurant, in an over rated hotel, is disgusting. A piece of tuna, or at least that is what it was purported to be, cold and cardboard like. Truly vomit inducing cuisine. Save yourselves the time, the money and please do not go... More

Went here for one main meal each no drink starter or desert, we had rib eye and filet steak rib eye half was fat, steaks didn't even come with a side, £110 total waste of my hard earned money. Be warned. Save your money and go elsewhere.

This is a great place to eat in, great food, cooked to perfection (we had huge crab's legs and lobster), but it is overpriced. What you really pay for is the amazing settings, on the beach, looking back at Abu Dhabi and the luxurious Emirates Palace hotel. The service is also first class, even providing blankets if it gets a... More

Very expensive restaurant with an average food quality. I wasn't impressed at all. In fact, I regretted going there. The menu is misleading. The way things are written will sounds impressive but ones the food arrives you end up in shock. The atmosphere is amazing and sitting outside is so beautiful especially in the winter. The service needs improvement as... More
