While visiting the Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi, we decided to have a something sweet and a coffee. We had tried to visit this restaurant on a weekend, but did not have a reservation and since it was a weekday, we decided to give it another try. We found the receptionist very friendly and were welcomed to just have dessert at what looks like a very nice full service restaurant. We were delighted with the 360 view of the Crown Prince's Palace, the cultural center, the marina and the Emirates Hotel, all within the 60 minutes that it takes to make a full revolution. I would highly recommend the Ice Cream Assortment Dessert, as it was a generous portion of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla with a nice assortment of fruit. The Chocolate Cake was a very rich mousse and very delicious. The service staff was very polite and did not rush us. We had a wonderful, relaxing hour and look forward to out next visit.

We ate here as part of the downtime we had on a business trip. Firstly they dont serve alcohol which is fine for us but will no doubt disappoint some people. I had the Tiara mixed grill which was lovely - although to be honest it was a very american sized portion as just the two lam koftas that come with it would be more than enough for most - add to that two small lamb chops, chicken pieces, rice and a mint yoghurt sauce and you wont be requiring any other courses!!
We all very much enjoyed the food but we'd have been floored if we'd ordered starters too. Overall everything was very good with attentive staff, nice drinks, good food and a fantastic view. They could halve the portions and they would still be generous - bar that we had no complaints.

This is not a what we call a class restaurant but this venue has some advantages that makes this restaurant worthwhile visiting. First of all this restaurant is located within the Marina Mall and once you take the elevator to the top floor you know why this is so special. You get a very nice view over the Abu Dhabi skyline -as well during the day as in the evening- and the extra touch is that you get a 'round view' as the platform turns so that everyone gets his own spectacular view while having his/her lunch or dinner. The food is OK and the service was very acceptable too. We had a soup for starter which was delicious and the main course was of a very good quality and surely more than enough.
We ended with a remarkable good coffee overlooking the skyline of Abu Dhabi.
An address to remember if you want to have a drink and enjoy the nice views over AD.

In Thursday I was with my friend we went there to have some juice and coffee and it was good, in Saturday I was with my another friends and the receptionist told us that only food and from long time we stopped serving only juice and cafe, people there let you feel they are doing favor for you,
also there is different menus for Juice & beverages once that come with food which least price than the dedicated menu for beverages only.

ِAlso you need 30 minutes to finalize the bills with such staff.

Place are good but people there are so rude, I will never go there again and does't deserve the money.

We took a ride up the outside of the building elevator, to the top of the Marina Mall Tower to have dinner in the revolving Tiara restaurant. On arrival at the top we were greeted by the very friendly receptionist and escorted to our table. The waiters were very friendly and their service was superb(don't know what happened to the other people on here who have complained, as we had great service). We only wanted a main course, which we ordered. While we were waiting, the waiters brought some beautifully soft tearing bread and different pastes to accompany the bread and it was delicious. Our main courses arrived and we were not disappointed. I had the jumbo prawns which were huge and again delicious and my wife had a pasta dish which she also enjoyed. While you are eating, the restaurant is revolving slowly and you get a fantastic night view of the whole of Abu Dhabi below you.
We payed 250 Dirams with an extra 50 Dirams tip(£50 in total) which we thought was great value for such a lovely venue. (other towers around the world would charge that just to take you up the elevator).
