“Must try harder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

Generally has a good name but the place falls a little short on providing a great dining experience. The food is good and the restaurant has a nice feel. However the service is very poor by Abu Dhabi standards and the food is over priced and does not represent good value for money

“Needs to train the service staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

I ate three times here for the past week. Three times I was served by different people, the food is always consistent and good. The service never come and check if the food is good, they rather either dry the silverware or talk to their peers. They are quick to remove the empty plate, which means they are aware but not chose to serve. That is a shame for the culinary team. Manager is great and try to compensate for staff, but it is too much. Hope they start getting their act together because competition will come .... Soon! Cheese market is great and recommended.
