One of the best steak houses in Abu Dhabi, and my favourite. Everything is perfect, the steaks, the food, the drinks and the service. You'll be wanting to tip for a great meal and service! The meals are not the regular fare, with a much better range and flavours. If you're a steak lover you must not miss the BLUE... More

We ate here twice during our 7 day stay. Patrick our server was amazing (Everyone else at the Yas Rotana was forgettable at best) Everything about Blu was great. Loved that we could watch the entire kitchen. All the food especially the Waygu steak was amazing! Hated that you could smoke in the restaurant >:(

Expensive unless you have discount cards, but the steaks are excellent, with the chefs very obliging if you want little seasoning like us! Great ambience, including outdoor dining if required. Very private if you require peace and quiet.

this restaurant is in another hotel, don't let this put you off, as the service, food and presentation was the best so far. Its a relative small, fixed price menu. We had been struggling to find somewhere that serves good food so we were happy to be here

I am obviously in love and in search of the best steak in the UAE. My latest attempt at finding my wonderful piece of meat was at Blue Grill in Rotana Yas.

We ate here with a group of friends - not our choice of restaurant as the last time we ate here which was quite a while ago - we were disappointed by food and the prices charged for it. Afraid to say, the food had not improved to match the prices. We were all disappointed by our main courses. There... More
