“My wife's secret no more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

I must have walked past this restaurant a dozen times before I tried it. As with all the restaurants in the hotel the staff are exceptional. They understand what customer service is and add to the dining experience. I've been for lunch and dinner and never been disappointed with anything from the menu. Another one of Chef Oliver's well run venues. Great for dinner or lunch.

“The best meal I have ever had in Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I have dined at many different restaurants in Abu Dhabi but this one surpassed them all, not just for the mouth watering food, the extensive menu or the attentive service but for the whole experience of dining in a truly world class restaurant. From the moment myself and my two dining companions arrived we were treated like valued and welcome guests. Each course was a delight, my starter of snails burgundy was divine, the main course of lamb loin was succulent and cooked to perfection and the raspberry soufflé melted in my mouth. I would of happily eaten all 3 courses again!
The staff were attentive to every detail, Randy, Lloyd and Ramesh looked after our every need and Nicholas the Food and Beverage manager introduced himself to us and asked for our feedback on our dining experience.
All I can say is if you are in Abu Dhabi then you have to visit this restaurant. It gets a 10/10.

“Amazing food - Never disappointing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Once again had a memorable night and felt I needed to review it as I said I would last time. Food was stunning and service was of the highest quality without the usual Abu Dhabi habit of being interfering (like asking questions as soon as you have a mouth full of food) so well done on the management for ensuring the staff are so well trained. We were a party of six, and sure it is not a cheap eat, but the atmosphere, decor and staff ensure an enjoyable evening out be it as a romantic dinner or catch up with friends.

The pork belly was one of my high lights (so hard to get a good one in the UAE) but scallops, deserts, fish, steak tartare ... Ok everything we ate on the menu was great so there is definitely something for everyone. Wine list was extensive and the sommelier was a great help too.

If you are looking for somewhere to just have a drink the bar area would not disappoint as beautiful and the cocktails delicious.

Definitely one of my top three favourite restaurants in Abu Dhabi.

“Outstanding restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

We had an amazing meal at the restaurant. The service was excellent, attentive, but not obstrusive. The quality of the food among the best I have eaten anywhere. I highly recommend the place, an experience you will not regret. Will definitely be going back. And for once, you dont feel like you are in Abu Dhabi! You are in a fine dining restaurant in Paris.

“Fine but relaxed French evening in Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Was not a big fan of French cuisine till today. This elegant brasserie changed my mind. The deco was exquisite, personally loved the china and cutlery - so elegant! Consistency in the design throughout the restaurant. Staff were friendly, well trained, knowledgable and naturally confident! And the price is not exorbitant at all! I love how it was fine dining but relaxed! And I could sense this throughtout the restaurant with tables of large groups sharing good laughter. Even the staff were relaxed and jovial. Bravo on striking that balance Brasserie Angelique.

There were 4 of us and from the time we walked in the door, we were addressed by name :) the menu was tantalising; makes you want to order everything! About 16 items for starters and 20 mains! We all had a 3-course meal and each item was deliciously special and visually appealing!

To start, I had the poached lobster that came with many different flavours and textures - grilled mango, sundried tomatoes, gnocchi and asparagus - wow! It was so good ... I preffered it to the wagyu steak I had for main course. There's about 5 sauces to choose from and about 12 sides, you are spoilt for choice. The black pepper sauce was nice, but would have preffered more. Chose the latte creme brulee for dessert which was nice, but my husband's souffle was to die for! Would really recommend that to everyone. The wine list is massive!

Definitely going back, and this time I will try the salmon, or dover sole or sea bream or the atlantic lobster! Can't wait to have this French nite in Abu Dhabi again.

Big thanks to the Restaurant Manager Nicolas Caupain, the F&B Manager Loic Thomas and the rest of the crew.
