Consistently good..

We eat here every time we visit Abu Dhabi. Again, we were not disappointed. Extensive menu, great wine list and a good atmosphere. Service wonderful. Food is always a winner and we found no complaint. All very tasty! The salt baked sea bass was a real winner.

This was our first dinner out in Abu Dhabi, and I am glad we picked this restaurant. It is pricier, but the food was delicious. We didn't make reservations, so we had to wait about 20 min before getting seated, but we were lucky enough to get a spot on their patio. The view of the waterway, and the surrounding... More
