Food is delicious Special space for children to play Very good prices Sometimes very crowded and too much shisha smoke But the open area is ok Appropriate for families and the people like middle eastern environment

View is ok. You would expect better in a habour. Diner was not that good. Ordered a steak. Raw. I got it well done. Had to send it back. Second attempt was better. Vegetables coming from a can. A lot of locals come here for smoking with waterpipe.

Lovely food with great prices... We had been looking for a place to eat in the mall for over half an hour and couldn't find anywhere, and then went across the road and road and found this great gem.

Came here for lunch, great views of Abu Dhabi and nice and relaxing by the water. Menu very western, and the traditional Arabic food, just ok, nothing special but not offensive. We were missing something from our order, but it didn't worry us and we didn't want to stay too long.

Went there with the expectation to enjoy a nice view and a light evening snack.. left the place with deep disappointment and smelling shisha.. place is always crowded with Arab speaking expatriates who are visiting the place with their big families mostly to lay back and enjoy shisha while their kids are running over the whole cafe area.. noise and...

located opposite to the Marina Mall, facing the beach and the marina. Food was average and cold..service was poor. Good only for shisha smoking.

Thank lecterit
