we were lucky enough to get there just in time for the early bird prices so our main courses were 50% off - the steaks were to die for and the customer service was impeccable.

My favourite place for steaks in the whole of Abu Dhabi. Love it. Conveniently located at Yas Island. We're Rotana Rewards card holders and they always greet us positively and make us feel special.

We had the Kobe beef and although was nice I wouldn't say it was the best I have ever had therefore would choose something different e next time as I didn't think it warranted the price. The mushrooms were a little garlicky for my taste, but the duck fat roast potatoes were great. I would recommend and return
