They do not cook, just the view. Worst food that we are in a restaurant that looks amateurish experiments

Just out of curiosity we stepped in the elevator. The top floor is a restaurant and one beneath that is the coffee shop. As we entered it looked like we were uninvited guests the girl at the entrance could not be more uninterested and bored. As i expected you can only enter when you order something, which is in my...

You reach the cafe via a glass walled elevator and when you get there, you have a 360 degree view of Abu Dhabi. We got there just as night fell, the view was amazing! People are walking around taking photos and shooting videos, you would expect that. What you wouldn't expect is the 'couldn't care less attitude' of the staff.... More

Charged 44AED for a coffee. You expect to pay a bit more for the view but this was extortion. I even had to find the waitress to get the bill. Don't bother!

My Friend was terrifyed ascending in the glass lift. ordered Tinto coffee, came as a surprise when it arrived, double expresso with a minimum froth, very strong. Fantastic views over the city. We returned a second time when it wasn't raining, even better views. try the almond ice cream, excellent

The food at this place is bland, boring and over-priced. Sure you may be paying for the view but it would be much better for you to go one floor up to the revolving restaurant 'Tiara'. The service is also very bad, we had to walk around to find a waiter/tress to pay the bill and had to wait for... More
