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

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

Lovely place and the food is second to none! Best steak I have had since I arrived here. Great service and all in all a really nice night out. I often get back there once I get back on shore and can not fault the place. Even if they are busy they always try and get you a table.

Have eaten at much better restaurants and paid a lot less. Service was very haphazard. Food was ok. I was expecting something pretty special based on the surroundings and the prices on the menu, but actually had a far better meal the following day at an American style diner in Yas Marina.
