The Blue Grill in the Yas Island Rotana is a fantastic restuarant with its speciality in steaks. There are usually 4 types and 200/300g options plus the mega Porterhouse. The steaks are cooked to perfection. There are other options on the menu for main courses which are also excellent - as advised to me by fellow diners as I haven't... More

Had a beautiful dinner ... Food is very expensive but you get what you pay for. I've been there about five times and would go more if they still let me use my entertainer voucher on a concert night or holiday which does not sit well with me. I don't think this is fair at all and certainly not advertised.... More

Food and drink were very good, just felt that the prices they charged are not really justified. After all this is a hotel restaurant and as such should be a little more affordable. @ £300 for 2 people just thought it a bit expensive.

This restaurant was one of the highlights of our trip to Abu Dhabi a couple of years ago! Nice decor, great atmosphere, service could not be faulted. The food was brilliant - very unusual seasoning of the steaks but it absolutely worked! The most notable thing was the attention to detail - we felt well looked after and had a... More

My wife and I both enjoyed a terrific steak here. It was accompanied by a very nice bottle of Cote du Rhone chosen from a quite comprehensive wine list that caters for all tastes and wallets. I'd go again.

The food and service at the Blue Grill is great. It is located in the Rotana hotel but it is definitively worth a visit no matter where you are staying.

The food was amazing everything from the pan fried scallops, the tenderloin and ribeye cooked to perfection and the lemon marengue pie to cleanse the taste buds at the end... What more can i say but to highly recommend all reviewers to try out the Blue Grill... It was a busy evening but our meals came on time... To top... More

Loved the service, the meat and the desserts. Expensive, yes. But considering what you get I consider it money well spent.
