Dinner

Steaks are the best on the menu. It is a little pricey so if you're fortunate to have entertainer vouchers use them. No need for entrees as the size of the main is enough to fill you up.

Last minute decision to go to the blue grill. A very good decision it turned out to be! Lovely welcoming smile from the lady at reception. The service was impeccable. The food even better.

Iv'e been to Blue Grill a number of times. There are two things to say about the food here. One is that the steaks are in my opinion some of the best in Abu Dhabi. Second is that it's expensive. Having a Rotana card or using an Entertainer voucher is a good option when visiting this place.

I went to the Blue Grill on Yas Island last Thursday night and it is the first time I've been disappointed at this restaurant. The table we sat at, enjoyed little a/c as it was nearly in the bar itself. To get the staff's attention was almost impossible and it took forever to be able to get a cocktail list... More

Me and the wife went here for a date night. They have a half off menu from 6-7 that is a very good deal. We were the only two in the restaurant until 7. So the service was very good. My wife had the prawn cocktail and I had the wedge salad to start. Both were very good but nothing... More
