“Good Party”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

The Club normally is quite busy at Wednesday and Thursday and the crowd parties until around 4 o'clock.
Very international guests, the DJ is doing a good job. Prices are fair, unfortunately it takes a while to get a drink at the bar.

“Friday buffet - great for a booze up”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

A couple of us went to the Yacht club for the buffet. To be honest we thought it was just booze with a small buffet on the side.
The food was fantastic with so many choices. The seafood selection alone was first class.
A waiter serving us was very attentive - as soon as our glasses were empty he brought new drinks.
Apparently, included in the buffet is Budweiser or Fosters, sparkly and mojitos.
We had a great afternoon there, and ate and drank like kings.
There are other grander hotels in Abu Dhabi serving nicer food in grander surroundings (The intercontinental to name an example), but really we had no complaints at all about our visit.

“Don't linger with Sunday Brunch...”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Went for Friday brunch...food was quite good and the price is reasonable (290 AED with drinks). I understand brunch is over around 3:30ish or so, but of course this is Friday expat brunch so the table was lingering a bit. A security guy came over and basically just said you have to leave as we are cleaning up. He did this to the table next to us as well. Fair enough, we went outside to the porch area and sat in the corner (the porch area was about half full) and the guy then came out about 20 minutes later and said you have to go - yes, after kicking everyone else on the porch off. It just seems quite unusual that you would not send the manager to suggest another bar area instead of literally sending some guy that spoke little to no english over to ask us to leave. Even though the price was right the service was not. I would not recommend it, nor do many other people on trip advisor it appears.

“Slow service, so so food”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Gave an other opportunity to a restaurant that, on paper, has many things in his favour (location, decor).
Chose table outside ( as inside it is very smokey).
Had to wait for more than 30 min before any food was delivered (and everything was delivered at the same time). Difficult to understand why as there were few patrons.
Food was nicely presented but quality was poor (fish and shrimps were not particularly fresh).
Desserts, after an other 30 min wait, were ok (better the chocolate parfait than the azuki cornetto)

“The place to party and dance”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

The Yacht Club is a night club of the Intercontinental hotel located in the northwest of Abu Dhabi. On weekends it can become very crowded with the usual mix of people from all over the world and all ages between 20 and 70. The DJ serves mainy house, Top-40-Dance-Remixes and sometimes some trance. Sound on the dancefloor is fantastic.
Should you consider to visit the Yacht Club to discuss your relationship problems it may be too loud - if you like to come for party and dancing in a relaxed atmoshphere this is your place.
