A little luxury here please, where is the shellfish? I went to this restaurant with high hopes for shellfish and I was disappointed. This is a good restaurant though worth going

We visited this place to celebrate one of our Friends Birthday. Since we gave them prior information hence everything was very well organized. I would like to thank specially Ibrahim for his great service and customer relation skills. He is wonderful at his work. In spite of being very busy, Chef also came to check if the food was good....

The food was very good. The wine list has a big variety from cheap to expensive bottles. The atmosphere was calm with nice music. It was a little bit cold - recommend to wear something warm or jacket on.

Great atmosphere and very peaceful place to enjoy a nice conversation with being destructed with the crowd which most restaurants bring. The food quality is world class especially the seafood selections. The restaurant is pricey however its less expensive than most of the 5 stars restaurants around. The service is great but a bit slow. Overall, great restaurant and highly... More

A high quality dinner which was enhanced by sitting outside in such a comfortable setting. The food was excellent and was complemented by the very attentive service.

I can definitely affirm that the Emirates Palace was the worst one. Even I can say that it was one of the worst dinner experiences in my life. I was in the Sayad restaurant (specialty... More

We visited the reataurant during our stay in Emirates Palace Hotel on halfboard. Food was nice, service as well. Wine choice per glas was limited and didn't turn out perfect for us. Service was good, some Germans on the team. We booked a table outside, lovely setting. Our table was next to a small stage with a saxophone player. The... More

As with most restaurants inside hotels in Abu Dhabi the food here is quite over priced for what you get. We were each served with a complimentary seared tuna and watermelon amuse-bouche which was pleasant enough. Wine list had a reasonable selection. For a purportedly high end restaurant like this I'd appreciate a more sophisticated choice of beers/lagers - come... More
