“nice place, a bit expensive”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

in general the place is good and has a nice view.
diving into specifics, when you pay that much of money for a buffet, you would expect it to be variable, the buffet is very limited and small.

“Super breakfast to start the day”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

A wonderful spacious restaurant with a calming influence. We only dined here for breakfasts.

Staff are at your every whim with replenishment of fruit juices, teas and coffees.

The hot buffet selections are varied and always fresh. Eggs of your choice are cooked to order and the cold selections on offer are extensive.

You must try the warm pastries - gorgeous!

Certainly one of of the best buffet breakfasts we have dined in.

Reviewed March 15, 2013

The best hotel buffet yet. The service was fast, maybe a little slow on the coffee, but our made to order eggs took only minutes. Great selection of items and cool location.

“Pretty good breakfast”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

It is a very good breakfast. While being on Yas island, you do not have many options though, but to eat in your hotel.
