Nice for the view

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.

The food was really great with plenty of choices. Arab and European. We ordered quite a few different dishes and when the food arrived... More
