Sometimes when you visit high quality diners the fixtures and atmosphere can be very bland and formal, you cannot say that about Finz, as they have managed to create a relaxed chic vibe and combine it with fine dining 5* food and service. The recent refurbishment simply oozes quality and softens the tone of the whole venue.(the picture on Trip... More

After reserving a specific table out on the deck, a few times with various FINZ/Beach Rotana employees, to ensure that our special evening started off right, when we arrived at our reservation time, our table was already given away. Strike-1 While the meal was very tasty, other than the Alaskan crab bisque, and well presented, the service was painfully slow.... More

An off night for the chef. First I want to say a great job to our fantastic waitress, Jolinda. She made our evening very nice. She works hard too bad her chef didn't back her. The starter, our oysters were amazing. It's why we come here. The Alaskan Crab Bisque was also delicious. My wife's Royal Mixed Grill was also... More

Finz, after being one of a kind restaurant in Abu Dhabi for many years with a good menu, excellent service and unique ambiance, has been transformed to a confused place with snobbish attitude in service. The place today is not quite a fine dining restaurant (though the prices qualify it to be one), nor is it a whole lounge concept.... More

The newly transformed FINZ has set a new dining benchmark in Abu Dhabi. After 2 years we return for a romantic seaside setting & it was absolutely wonderful. The resident DJ played smooth listening beats which was ideal for an exclusive restaurant. The service was impeccable, suggesting perfect wines, exceptional seafood AND vegetarian options. Homemade breads to start, lovely touch... More
