If you love a luxurious bbq, then dining at BBQ Al Qasr is an experience you will not want to miss. This unique outdoor restaurant is an exciting feast for all your senses, with the world-class chefs preparing your bbq dishes, the tantalising food aromas in the air, and the textures of perfectly seasoned hot steaks and seafood. The discerning locals of the city know that nothing compares to the BBQ Al Qasr experience! If you adore a barbecue dining experience, BBQ Al Qasr in Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace is simply the finest of beachside dining in Abu Dhabi. Located near the sea, you will have a chance to take in the stunning views of the white sandy beachfront, while indulging in a luxurious barbecue. Your anticipation and appetite will build as you catch the scent of Arabian shisha, the salty balm of the sea air and the blend of grilled food aromas around you.

With a BBQ offering of seafood, char-grilled meats, freshly baked breads, salads and sweets, BBQ Al Qasr presents an exceptional menu that will more than satisfy even the healthiest of appetites. Treat yourself to world-class service Emirates Palace is known for and is proud of, while enjoying the famous Abu Dhabi BBQ. Stay on, relax and chat over a shisha, mint tea or a drink at the comfortable lounge of the restaurant. As with famous dining locations in any city of the world, do book early at the weekends if you are planning your evening at the best BBQ in Abu Dhabi!

“Good food - great scenery!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Went here for dinner one evening - outdoor seating right on the beach - the ocean in front the majestic Emirates Palace in the background! Ordered their signature BBQ, the camel burger - different but very good! Good wine list and good service.

We finished our dinner with the Emirates Palace signature cappuccino - you find it in the restaurant/cafe inside the Emirates Palace. When in Abu Dhab; you just have to try the great coffee - "if it looks like gold it is gold"

“Romantic Gazebos...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The place is magical for couples, specially in winter & spring seasons. Food presentation is fine, food quality is standard. I liked mostly the romantic atmosphere. finally I guess it worth trying!

“If Disgusting could be 7 Stars!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Perhaps the best word that can describe what was on my plate last night at this over rated restaurant, in an over rated hotel, is disgusting. A piece of tuna, or at least that is what it was purported to be, cold and cardboard like. Truly vomit inducing cuisine.

Save yourselves the time, the money and please do not go to this restaurant. How can a hotel allow food such as this to be served in one of their outlets?!

“Disappointing.......!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Went here for one main meal each no drink starter or desert, we had rib eye and filet steak rib eye half was fat, steaks didn't even come with a side, £110 total waste of my hard earned money. Be warned. Save your money and go elsewhere.

“Great food, but you are paying for the scenery!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

This is a great place to eat in, great food, cooked to perfection (we had huge crab's legs and lobster), but it is overpriced. What you really pay for is the amazing settings, on the beach, looking back at Abu Dhabi and the luxurious Emirates Palace hotel. The service is also first class, even providing blankets if it gets a bit cold. It is a bit of a walk to the bathroom, but it's worth it. A great place for a special occasion.
