This is my favorite place in Abu Dhabi. I love this place for the ambiance; I love the structure and of course I love their food. You go to Finz and you know you'll eat well. I love their bread basket, always different, creative and good combinations. The food is always good, fresh fish and creative dishes. Very glad I... More

It has become a traditional for us to have Saturday lunch at Prego's, the Italian restaurant at Beach Rotana, however sometimes it is filled with families (nothing wrong with that) but today we felt like a quiet lunch. Therefore we decided to go for Finz. At 1pm we were the only customers in this bright and airy restaurant overlooking the... More

Took my wife to Finz yesterday for our 20th wedding aniversary as it was recommended by a friend as having a very romantic setting and atmosphere. When I booked I was also asked if the meal was for a special occasion, which was a nice gesture but that also raised my expectation that they might acknowledge that in some way... More

I went to Finz yesterday for dinner with my wife and son. We ate 2 calamari appetizers and a tuna tartare, 2 catch-of-the-day oven baked fish and 1 cioppino, plus 2 dessert, with 3 bottles of sparkling water, a JD/Coke and 2 glasses of champagne. The fish was cooked as fillet, since the waiters do not clean it at the... More

We nearly missed eating at Finz, it's tucked away in a corner outside the back of the Beach Rotana. What a lovely meal we had, everything is done to perfection, from the lovely selection of breads, the very delicious main courses and of course the deserts. We choose a selection of tiny deserts just enough for two. The wine is... More

One of the best seafood menus. A little but pricey, but the quality and variety of seafood is excellent and justifies the price! Deep fried calamari was so good ... and fish n chip was best we have tasted outside of Scotland!!

Had lunch with my father visiting from abroad. Ordered the red snapper and sherry which were the catches of the day. Portion was very reasonable with sides of potato, steamed vegetables and choice of sauces. Excellent service with a nice view of Mariyah island across the water. Expect to pay around AED 500 for two. A must try.

I'll start with the high ceiling, the impact this has on you is like being in a spiritual place, a church, makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. The view, this could be the best view in Abu Dhabi. At least it is for me. Food, service and ambience, altogether make FINZ one of the best dining choices in UAE.... More
