“Best service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

We were very impressed with the high level of service. There was a really good selection of wine. We had a merlot from the Lebanon. The food was exceptional. Good selection of everything. Glorious desserts with bits of gold leaf. When you come to Abu Dhabi, don't miss this excellent restaurant, you won't regret it. Best to book in advance and be aware of the dress code.

“Superb lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We have been for lunch a couple of times here and will be returning more often!

Today was my Fiancées birthday and she was delighted, superb selection and by far one of the best buffets we've tasted in UAE.

The service is fantastic, Satish and his team are a credit to this experience, this is surely a grand restaurant to dine at in a Palace and feel like royalty for the afternoon, this was a perfect surprise for my Fiancée.

Top tip is the window or balcony tables over looking the wonder bay, truly a 5 star memory!
Thank you.....

“Had better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

This is one of the restaurants at the opulent Emirates Palace Hotel but can be used by non guests. For guests with breakfast included in the package this is where you have breakfast. It is also one of four restaurants on offer if you have a dinner package. We had four breakfasts and one dinner here. The food is plentiful with a good variety but I found it a little lacking in quality. If I had to pay (something like A$63 is quoted for breakfast on a hotel booking site) I would not feel like I had value for money but staying at the hotel, there is no other option for breakfast. Any other restaurant is a car ride away from the complex. The staff are very good but the food quality lets them down a bit. Dinner in particular was disappointing. I had a roast but the meat was cold, undercooked and no roast vegetables. I hate to think what this would have cost had I paid. I rated it 2 but would have done two and a half had I had the option.

“Horrible food with the worst service ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I have to say that i had unbelievable Friday lunch experience with my family in this resturant. The food was horrible; no flavour, not fresh at all with very limited varieties. Plus the worst service.
It was a waste of our time and money.
