When you reach Level 63 of Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, you will find your culinary expectations have also risen. Happily, the most creative cuisine in Abu Dhabi reaches culinary heights that most restaurants can only aspire to. Quest restaurant offers an imaginative interpretation of modern fine dining, blending and recreating flavours from Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and China. You will discern Chef Benjamin Whatt's creativity and exacting standards in every mouthful.

Quest is Closed!

I made a reservation in July 2014 for Quest in anticipation of our trip to Abu Dhabi in January 2015. The day of our reservation, I received an email stating that Quest is now closed and will be replaced with a different restaurant. I was disappointed at the short notice of the cancellation, but... read more

Quest has always been one of those highly rated restaurant hence it is very easy to be disappointed when you dine there. The location and overall look of the restaurant is superb, food prepared very well, particularly those wok dishes. However i find the food to be too expensive for what you get.

we went for an alternative Christmas Day dinner, and yes the view is fabulous. But after the view has been taken in the overall dining experience is a bit flat. Don't get me wrong the food is really good, but for this quality of hotel I would have expected something much more special. Wouldn't rush back

I did not let myself be influenced by the less positive reviews of Quest. Went with open mind for dinner and to cut a long story short: I had a great dining experience at height. I chose the "menu experience" plus wine pairing, which in hindsight was an excellent choice. Dining at Quest is a feast, literally haute cuisine at... More

This place deserves a Star at least, on the 63rd floor the view is amazing but the food you get there is the real attraction. The thought that has gone into the menu is genius and we spent the whole evening laughing with delight at what each dish had in store. (To say more about each course would spoil everyone... More

Having spent several days at the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers we had sampled and thoroughly enjoyed several of the other excellent restaurants in the hotel. Sadly the Quest was different - frankly very ordinary average dishes served in a pretentious style - presumably to justify the ludicrous prices ( even by Abu Dhabi standards). It's hard to say it was... More

Sadly this was the low-point of our trip to Abu Dhabi - which was a real shame because it has an amazing location in an very iconic building at an altitude that gives fantastic views across the city.

A fine selection of quality dining opportunities. Excellent but unobtrusive service. A fine view complements the meal. I would suggest that it is difficult to single out any particular dish,but the entree signature notebook dish was great on the eye and treat for the taste buds. A good selection of wine is available by the course.

The courses were original and tasty, but quantity a bit small. Staff is very nice. But the main desapointement is the view at night. Why this tower has been selected!!! The view is on the island, but not on the corniche, and one tower is hidding the emirates palace! Very desapoining! It is freezeing cold inside!
