“Great steaks, but eye wateringly expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The food was very good, the service was great and the decor was fine (think Gentleman's Club with high back leather arm chairs, but tucked away inside the building so no views, not my cup of tea personally). But it seriously hurt the wallet, so be warned!

Visited Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill several times over the last two years, and by far this is the best steakhouse you will find in Abu Dhabi.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I was so excited about visiting MPWs and trying the twice done fries. It was really uneventful, the fries were poor and the experience not worthy of a return visit. The maitre d' did try her best.

“Can't go wrong...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

What a superb dining experience. Great setting, good atmosphere and very attentive and amusing staff. We were well advised and had a beautiful bottle of Malbec (which was priced very reasonably) and the Chateaubriand for two. Yes, it was expensive, but it was very good value for the quality of the experience and the food. One quibble - the description of the restaurant celebrates a "wall of fire" - yet what one encounters is somewhat more prosaic - it's a fire in a wall.
