Very good view and ambience. Music very nice as well, mellow and in the background. Place feels fancy. Items we loved : Angus steak with black pepper and accompanying garlic rice. I ordered it medium well and it was cooked to perfection. The French martini tasted great as well. The service was very good and the people helped us with... More

Stunning, stunning meal. Go for the tasting menu - you won't regret it. Quite simply one of the best meals we've ever had. Service faultless too. This is a real destination restaurant. Put it on your bucket list.

We had booked a table in Quest, and although we arrived early, our table was ready for us. Attentive service and good authentic food with a fine dining touch. We would highly recommend this restaurant, and we will definitely be back.

Abu Dhabi's new hot-spot Etihad Towers Hotel, which includes Asian Fusion Restaurant Quest, is not yet living up to its ambition. The Asian fusion food we experienced last week while dining in the 63rd floor restaurant was not very disappointing. The first course (chicken noodles) ended up to be same as the Singapore Sea Food Noodles, same taste, only difference... More

If you're staying in Abu Dhabi then this is a MUST for any special occasion or just for the hell of it. The tasting menu is an amazing 12 course experience with entertaining and amazing food that's never quite what you think it is. Ranging from the amazing molecular dishes (a sushi roll that's a cheeseburger, popcorn that's nitrogen-frozen icecream)... More

We visited for a special birthday dinner back in January, the start to our evening was not what we hoped for and initially made us almost walk out again. The welcome was really good and we were recognized by name, wondering how they new who we were just walking in or if they just guessed. We asked to have a... More

We had a fabulous dinner and experience here about 2 years ago but I neglected to write a review. We dined in one of their private rooms and were treated like kings and queens to an amazing pre fixe menu. The chef came to our table on two occasions to describe his dishes to us which was a nice treat.... More

Fantastic service - it's a ritual they go through and really make it special for each time we go. The food is highly experimental and has a lot of diverse, rich flavours that are very different from your traditional Asian fusion. Pricy, but definitely worth it.

We were resident at the hotel for 5 nights to celebrate my 40th birthday. We ate here on our first night. A warm welcome and very good service throughout. Decor – I must say I really don’t like it. Clearly a personal taste issue but other than the setting (on 63rd floor) the restaurant is more functional canteen than luxurious.... More
