“seafood in style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

Michelin star food and service which can only be executed this perfectly when service and kitchen teams work this well together.

“going downhill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

3rd vist to this restaurant in 2010, service is usual standard, which is hard to better, but food very poor on this visit, all we kept being told is our new chef worked for Gordon Ramsey !! but I am afraid to me dropping names dont work, the proof is in the quality of his food, not who he worked for, and must say the quality was poor, presentation was good, in its day! but must have worked for Gordon quite a while ago, because even presentation was bit dated.
Ask for restaurant manager at end of meal, but seemed he was too busy to talk with us! so they gave us a comments card, but sadly this was completed by someone else on the previous day, (by the way it had poor comments on food too) so no room for us to make comments! seem's they take no notice of comments card, so really not woth completing the new one that then appeared.

Better restaurants then this in Abu Dhabi, and in fact, so over priced for this quality of food its shocking! in my opinion and my guest, would not bother again!

“surrounded by very fancy...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2008

surrounded by very fancy setting, the palace...but you can enjoy the same type of food or even better out in the city center, half the price.
