The restaurant is at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi, and though I stayed at the hotel before and loved it but I did not get the chance to try their Friday brunch.
Yesterday I was invited there and though the host wanted to do it some other hotels and there are a lot of nice ones in Abu Dhabi but this was the only available one and now I know why…
We reached there 5 minutes before our booking but the table booked for us was gone and after few minutes we were offered a very Sh…. Table which we refused to take so we had to wait again for some time for new arrangement.
The waiters hardly spoke English and you needed a translator when they spoke to you ( and of course he did not speak the local language!!)
The food was below average and you can feel that some dishes had been there from the day before even and not that big of variety comparing to other hotels in the same area with the same average of price and I would not give the food more than 4 out of 10
Finally when we are paying and asked them to stamp the valet parking receipt like every other hotel the reply was literally: we are offering so much complementary like water and coffee and juice so we can not offer a complementary parking!!!!! and we are talking about 3 Dollars in here waoooo.
And before I forget, I wish they can find a better singing band for a friday brunch to replace this very noisy group
Though I like Sheraton and its products but this was not a five stars Sheraton standard.

Once every six to eight weeks I seem to end up at Flavours for the Friday Brunch. Overall the selection of food is extensive compared to other similar offers around town and the bubbly flows with constant top ups from the excellent staff.
The seafood selection is comprehensive: smoked salmon to roll mops, sushi to giant prawns. Live cooking stations supplement the array of main dishes, so one can partake of simple roasts right the way through to a taste of India or an all day breakfast.
Go hungry, since this is an as many times as you like affair, over a period of about three and a half hours. Many deserts, although they do all seem to be of a sweet and similar nature which seems to be a local trait. Where is the apple or blackberry and apple pie? Despite this however, I always enjoy this place, especially since there is a good atmosphere with live music. The people watching is good too!

From my favourite, the Indian night on Tuesdays onwards, you get excellent service, a huge variety, fresh cooking stations and generally a fine dinner! Watch out, it closes on Saturday evenings

About 20 years ago we lived in Abu Dhabi and the Seafood night at the Sheraton was a must, every expat would go there for good food and good time with our friends. Upon returning to Abu Dhabi we had to try the Seafood Buffet at the Flavours restaurant in the Sheraton. It was a very good seafood buffet, eat as much as you can, selection was very good, Every thing was very fresh. Too bad all our friends were not there.
Still a very good deal for Abu Dhabi, We will go back on our next trip.
