“Romantic Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The staff was extremely friendly. The service was great. The food was also great. A bit on the high end as prices go, but it was a great evening non the less. Steak was great, seafood was also great.

“Friday Brunch Pearls & Caviar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We are a brunch fan (quite evident from all my reviews of brunches). We went to Pearl & Caviar in March when Abu Dhabi weather was great for outside sitting. This hotel is situated between the two bridges and the restaurant overlooks beach and has a great view of the mosque. We had requested for an outdoor seating and when we reached they have happy to assist us to a side seating outside with a great view. When the sun started coming they opened the umbrellas for us and we were again comfortable.
We took the bubbly option for brunch and they had a good collection of wines, champagne and cocktails. Though the cocktails (Mojitos and Daiquiri) were not great at taste, they were not bad or disgusting in taste. it tasted fine. The Food spread was good. The food tasted good with a variety ranging from sushi's and shashimi to roasted chicken and turkey. The dessert spread was also good with great taste.
Though the coffee we requested after the brunch was served cold, They were happy to get us another cup of hot one once we pointed it out to the servers.
Overall a good place for the brunch. Loved the place, food, service and the outdoor seating. Though it was totally crowded it wasn't noisy. We loved our outing at this restaurant. Recommended for the brunch lovers.

“A fun bar ! (Pearl's Bar)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Firstly thank you Ulysse and your team for the fantastic service, we had an amazing time and can't wait to return soon !
A great place to either enjoy the late night social scene or just to cuddle up for a drink with your significant other and check out the beautiful views.

A complimenting element to an all ready delightful hotel !

“Would like to give a good review but....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Went here one night for drinks, greeted at the door went up the stairs it wasn't very busy found a table sat down only to be told it was only open for a private party, no notices saying anything outside, so would we like to come back another night. Went back another night welcomed at the door again climbed the stairs again, unfortunately my husband had smart shorts on with a collared shirt, and they wouldn't let us in, but they let some one in with scruffy jeans and a T shirt, wouldn't bother going back again.

“Well worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Recommend you eat on the terrace outside if possible as the view of the mosque is outstanding, particularly at night
Staff very friendly and even if oysters and caviar are not your thing, and certainly not ours, the food was very good and well priced.
