“Poor service ... was far better before!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The terrace is very nice but how can I have the food without dishes? We ordered some starters, libanese, typically to be shared, good in quality but they forgot to bring the dishes and shouldn't happen in a 5 stars hotel. At the main course they forgot to bring forks so ... again looking for waiters that were busy with other clients. We had at the end some desserts we finished the desserts and my wife was still waiting for the the maroccan the' ordered far far before. What's wrong now? In the past was a great restaurant so we brought some friends to let them feel the flavour of the arabian food but unfort ... was not adequate. At the end is not that cheap so I'm ready to pay more but I'm expecting a totally different level of service.

Thank you for taking the time to review Atayeb. As a regular guest we appreciate your feedback it is disappointing to hear that on this occasion the service you received was not up to our 5 star standard. It would be helpful if you could contact me directly by emailing dining@viceroyhotelsandresorts.com with the date and time of your visit and with the name of your reservation, so that I can further investigate your visit.

“Super tasty veal tajine”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We arrived mid afternoon to the Yas Viceroy and on arriving in Abu Dhabi, though tired, we wanted to try an authentic dish that evening. We were not disappointed at the quality in Atayeb. However, being a restaurant in a hotel it was expensive especially with the taxes but it was very nice and definitely authentic cuisine. We were seated outside and could watch the roof of the unique Yas Viceroy change through an array of colours and as the balcony sits over part of the huge F1 race track and it was very unique and pretty setting, though hot of course being seated outside. There were air con units which were helping with the heat, but most importantly no midges or mosquitoes unlike Australia! We ordered a mix of traditional items but the stand out was the veal tajine. The veal was "melt in the mouth" and exceedingly tasty. The staff were courteous but not intrusive. A lovely start to our first time visit to the UAE.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Fabulous authentic food in a most unusual setting, over looking the race track. There was an Aston Martin driving experience taking place whilst we were eating, so very entertaining! Faultless staff again who were attentive but not intrusive. A great start to the week.
