We love The MeatCo in Joburg so we gave this one a try but had not realized how pricey a South African steakhouse can be in Abu Dhabi!!! Having said that, the meat was good and service friendly. Getting a table on the terrace with a view on the great mosque is an experience in itself.

when this establishment first opened i considered it a great place for meat, steaks and all things beef. nice venue, nice views and great staff. now and for the last couple of years Meat Co. have cheapened their offerings. no longer a leader, no longer a meat destination. their steaks are amasingly sub-standard and quite ordinary.

Service was nice and attentive, maybe we should have been hungrier. The burgers were very tough and lacked flavour, chips were Luke warm

We were served by Lincoln, who was wonderful. We were offered water , then some bread, which I am sure was beetroot and chocolate...Amazing. For starters I had the Mozambique style chicken livers, really tasty, hot spicy sauce. My husband had the sausage, which was also very good. For main, we had the chateau Briand, and it really was the... More

Had the meat on the skewers it was very nice. Service good kind and a bit of a laugh. The wine is available in various sizes so you have more options than other restaurants well impressed. We did end up with some else's pudding but it looked so good we ate it and theirs did turn up in the end.

There is no shortage of attention from the manager, the waiter Mike introduced himself warmly and the hostess was gracious. Your bill is heavy, but so too is your stomach when you leave. Portions are large, it's easy to over order. Nice to walk a bit after dinner through the souk.

If you are looking for a Grade-A steak cooked to perfection, look no further. This is the place to go. The steak was amazing and outdoor view was anything less than spectacular! The outdoor patio backs right up to the marina. We went for an evening dinner when the sun was set and the marina was beautifully lit up by... More

We partook of the special menu for New Year's Eve, a four course menu. The food was high quality, and very enjoyable. Delicious crab & sweetcorn soup with King crab croquettes; an entree plate (meaty and succulent lamb cutlet etc); main course and dessert. We both selected a steak for the main. The steaks were cooked as we asked, and... More

I have eaten here many times but it is never when I want a good steak, it's more when I want a diner experience with alcohol. As many people mentioned before they waiters over-do their pitch, and are to opinionated for the type of restaurant they want to be. I doubtfully think they dry age their meat in this place... More
