The best restaurant in the best hotel in Abu Dhabi

The best restaurant in the best hotel in Abu Dhabi. Everything is excellent in here, but just pricy.

After all the reviews we were a little bit unsure of our reservation but we had a great time. We had a party 0f 11 so they immediately gave us a private room. Great view of the seafront. Service was exceptional. We had the antipasto to share which was great. So was the grilled calamari. For mains, my veal cheek... More

Each time we come back, the chef looks after us very well. The elegant surroundings make the perfect setting for a business dinner or get together with friends. I do recommend the pasta and the home made ice creams and sherbets. No problem in extending a recommendation!

It used to be awesome. Food and atmosphere is great. Prices have increased, service has decreased. We waited 30 minutes for coffee. Since that time, two false orders were brought to our table and I went to the kitchen to ask if we serve ourselves for coffee. Seven minutes later, coffee was delivered. Our food arrived after waiting for 45... More

Creamy burrata, al dente pasta - it's no wonder they've won awards. With an outdoor terrace, its the perfect spot for lunch with a beautiful view of the beach on a warm, sunny Arabian day. $$$ Bookings recommended for dinner: 02690 7999. 4NOMS.

This is my second time at this reataurant, I have been there 2 years ago, and it's better than I remember. The steak was so juicy and appetiting. I ordered the king crab and avocado platter as an appetiezer and was just OK. If you go there, make sure you call in advance and get a table outside. The view... More

Delicious authentic Italian cuisine but watch out...one serving of a main meal will easily serve 2 adults! We love our food and were forced to leave more than half of the delicious Wagyu beef lasagne and Spaghetti Carbonara. Fabulous live Italian singer in the evening...very romantic with outdoor seating although it did get very hot due to no ceiling fans.
