“Big portions - nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We ate here as part of the downtime we had on a business trip. Firstly they dont serve alcohol which is fine for us but will no doubt disappoint some people. I had the Tiara mixed grill which was lovely - although to be honest it was a very american sized portion as just the two lam koftas that come with it would be more than enough for most - add to that two small lamb chops, chicken pieces, rice and a mint yoghurt sauce and you wont be requiring any other courses!!
We all very much enjoyed the food but we'd have been floored if we'd ordered starters too. Overall everything was very good with attentive staff, nice drinks, good food and a fantastic view. They could halve the portions and they would still be generous - bar that we had no complaints.

“Excellent location decent food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

This is not a what we call a class restaurant but this venue has some advantages that makes this restaurant worthwhile visiting. First of all this restaurant is located within the Marina Mall and once you take the elevator to the top floor you know why this is so special. You get a very nice view over the Abu Dhabi skyline -as well during the day as in the evening- and the extra touch is that you get a 'round view' as the platform turns so that everyone gets his own spectacular view while having his/her lunch or dinner. The food is OK and the service was very acceptable too. We had a soup for starter which was delicious and the main course was of a very good quality and surely more than enough.
We ended with a remarkable good coffee overlooking the skyline of Abu Dhabi.
An address to remember if you want to have a drink and enjoy the nice views over AD.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

In Thursday I was with my friend we went there to have some juice and coffee and it was good, in Saturday I was with my another friends and the receptionist told us that only food and from long time we stopped serving only juice and cafe, people there let you feel they are doing favor for you,
also there is different menus for Juice & beverages once that come with food which least price than the dedicated menu for beverages only.

ِAlso you need 30 minutes to finalize the bills with such staff.

Place are good but people there are so rude, I will never go there again and does't deserve the money.

“Romantic Evening Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We took a ride up the outside of the building elevator, to the top of the Marina Mall Tower to have dinner in the revolving Tiara restaurant. On arrival at the top we were greeted by the very friendly receptionist and escorted to our table. The waiters were very friendly and their service was superb(don't know what happened to the other people on here who have complained, as we had great service). We only wanted a main course, which we ordered. While we were waiting, the waiters brought some beautifully soft tearing bread and different pastes to accompany the bread and it was delicious. Our main courses arrived and we were not disappointed. I had the jumbo prawns which were huge and again delicious and my wife had a pasta dish which she also enjoyed. While you are eating, the restaurant is revolving slowly and you get a fantastic night view of the whole of Abu Dhabi below you.
We payed 250 Dirams with an extra 50 Dirams tip(£50 in total) which we thought was great value for such a lovely venue. (other towers around the world would charge that just to take you up the elevator).

“Worst service and food ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Disrespected and not treated nicely at all. Waste of money, overpriced and to make it worse, the staff acts like they're doing you a favor for even allowing you to sit there. One crappy place.
