The view from here, the 63rd floor, is wonderful and the setting was peaceful and comfortable. The entire staff provided excellent professional service and was quite friendly. The dinner was also rather good. My main quibble here is that the very expensive dinner should have had something special about it, but it didn’t. It was fine, just not worth nearly... More

Fantastic views, really good food and all flavours were in balance even they were mixed in a new way. Service was warm and kind, not fake at all. Enjoy your meal and look over the town. Good price! One place that must experience while staying in AD.

If you appreciated interesting and creative food, you must give this place a try. 12 courses of creative delights, Blumenthal esque!! You will be surprised by each and every course. It is expensive, but the views from the 63rd floor are well worth it and if you can ask for a private dining room, there are plenty of them. I... More

We always try to visit one 'special' restaurant with a tasting menu in every big city we visit, so Quest seemed like a great place to be and it was. I booked a table in advance via the website and as soon as we walked into the restaurant I was greeted by name from the member of staff. In general... More

We returned to Quest last week having thoroughly enjoyed our meal on our last trip. The restaurant was quiet for a Friday evening so lacked atmosphere, not helped by a number of fellow guests constantly playing with their phones ( no fault of the restaurant!) The service was excellent. My wife enjoyed her meal. I thought my meal was good... More

The service was impeccable. We had the tasting menu which was excellent and quite creative. Keep in mind you will need about three hours to enjoy the tasting menu. You won't want to miss this once in a lifetime experience when your in Abu Dhabi.

After reading reviews about Quest I was really disappointed with my experience. The food, service and setting was nice but not great. I felt that it was all a little too "try hard" and pretentious.
