Amazingly arranged menu that was greatly paired with the wine being offered. Blue Grill is great for any meal but this offering was superb.. Definitely will be going back next time.

We are regulars. The blue grill has great steak. But as a veggie/fishy I have found the menu limiting as the menu has not changed in a year and the shrimps have been off a few times as has the asparagus. ( i'd rather not have poor asparagus out of season though) . sometimes they have been known to let... More

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
