We visited towards the end of summer for a romantic meal. We came mid-week and the restaurant was pretty empty. Our server was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We took a steak each with sides and a bottle of red wine. The open kitchen means you can see the chefs making your food, it arrived cooked as ordered and was... More

The meal was in a peaceful atmosphere. Our waiter was super-friendly and helpful. The food was great, so were the burgers and the calamaris and burrata salad we had as appetizers. The one thing that didn't make the "tasty" list was the quinoa salad.

We went as a family to The Meat Co expecting a nice meal. It turned out the service was very poor and unprofessional, the food was nothing special and presented in the most plain way possible. The worst thing though was the fact that we had to pay 80 AED, for two small milkshakes for my children. To put that... More

You know what you're going to get when you see the menu at the front door, it's pricey, but the quality of the food and the professionalism of the staff makes it a worthwhile investment.

I've eaten here on several visits to Abu Dhabi. It's expensive but worth it (the burgers are decent value if you're looking to spend less). Lovely waterfront location as well.

Unfortunately the meat co don't know how to cook steaks which is a critical downfall when their main sales pitch is their variety of steaks. Granted, we had a complicated order :) of 4 differently cooked steak requests but many many restaurants can do this. We sent one back and muddled though with the rest but on top of this... More

Four in our party and we all ordered different starters and mains and all the courses were good. I enjoyed the African sausage starter most - the beef main course on a skewer was also tasty. Excellent and informative service from our waiter Raymond who also arranged a musical happy birthday as part of dessert - great fun. Overall a... More

Extremely overpriced for very average food. Two starters and two mains, plus a bottle of water came to £200. A shame because it has a great location overlooking the water.
