Arrived here last night after calling for reservations and were quickly seated. The place started filling up a short time after we arrived. The decor of the place is alright. Very open concept with some sails scattered about the place. Feels more like a mall restaurant than fine dining. The service was at all times excellent. Fresh baked bread along... More

This fabulous restaurant was probably Abu Dhabi's best kept secret.
