Fabulous.

Can't recommend this enough. Soooo much food, it's such a meat fest. We always ate inside due to having Young children who needed to sleep, and unfortunately it could be noisy. But overall a great night.

This restaurant really impressed us with it's selection of beautifully cooked bbq'ed meats. I'm not a big meat eater at all and generally go for chicken or fish but I was a convert for a few nights, the meat of a very high quality. Service was excellent and worth tipping!

My son and I decided to have the Barbecued meat whilst my wife and daughter had salmon - all the meals were excellent but the barbecues meat was some of the best we have ever tasted - cooked to perfection and the full choice took us through two chicken cuts, four or five beef cuts and two lamb cuts -...

Beautiful setting, lovely steaks. The service is fabulous. Shambhu is great, so friendly and good at his job. We have stayed in Resort 5 times, and visit this restaurant about 3/4 times a week. That says it all.

We have just returned from our 4th visit to Resort. Ate at this restaurant about 6 times! Churassco is great, but the rib eye steak is to die for. Lamb rack also. Chef Marco does a great job. Shambhu is a gem!! Needs to be given more opportunity to prosper!! Wholly recommend. Beautiful setting too.

We visited this twice whilst staying at the hilton resort that this Brazilian restaurant is part of, it does seem expensive at245 dirham for the churasco (bbq meat outside) but it is for the whole meal, so you can have chicken wings and sewers to start, then beef lamb pork, all as much as you want then pineapple bbq, so...

We were visiting RAK and found this restaurant on trip advisor. We opted for the grill and buffet and were not disappointed. Everything was cooked to order and was outstanding. Perhaps a fish option would have been nice too? Will most certainly be visiting here again.
