“Exceptional Meals in Quiet Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Jones The Grocer is a nice little place to enjoy a great meal. The cheeses and meats are delightful. They have great options in all categories. All of their food is fresh and homemade. It really is nice for lunch, dinner, wine, tea, or coffee. My friends and I love to go there for a break from regular restaurants. The desserts are to die for. I highly recommend their raspberry tart or the carrot cake. One of my favorite things to order at any time is their butternut pumpkin soup. It is thick, spicy, sweet, and all together amazing. Even if you aren't hungry for a meal, they have so many take away options. You can create your own sandwich too. But if you are a penny pincher, skip the trip. If you go to Jones, you are certainly going to spend some cash. In my opinion, it is worth it!

“Great presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

When you need a boost to remind you that you're living well, Jones is the place to remind you. The cheese room alone is a great find in the desert for a cheese lover like me. They pull pretty good espresso drinks, and the gourmet menu is worth the splurge every once in awhile. While you wait, walk around and remind yourself of what you want your dream kitchen to contain and how you really need more truffle-derived goodies in your life.

“The in place thats not always for everyone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Jones seems to be ''the in place'' here currently - and the food is OK - very expensive and limited - sat watching the kitchen staff run in with a bag of meat from the Spar next door is not always a nice view...

“Something Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This was a nice break from the homogenized American restaurants that overpopulate Abu Dhabi. The grilled chicken sandwich was great and I tried the trio of dips which was good (not amazing).

I would definitely recommend a quick bite there but you want to keep the waiter's eye if you want to keep the meal moving.

I though the lemonade was delicious.
