“Vintage... Class all of their own”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Having researched places to eat and to explore in and around Abu Dhabi, our visit could not have been complete without a visit to Cipriani's, Yas Marina, Yas Island. On a warm balmy evening, we were greeting in reception by an immaculately dressed gentleman, who immediately greeted us by name. Escorted my husband and I upto the restaurant and our table.... over looking the marina and the F1 race track. (I honestly thought that I was dreaming & still pinch myself to think that we have been!!) Inside the decor is oppulent, decadent and gives a truely vintage ambience...Beautiful. The service was first class, every detail attended to, food choices and speed inbetween course was well balanced. Such a very special evening which will remain with me for a very long time. Go & experience. I would advise that Cipriani's is more of a romantic, special occasion location - there were no children on the premises at the time of our booking. In all, thank you to the team at Cipriani's, my husband and I had a wonder evening.

“Treat yourself - go and eat here”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

We went to aprize giving function for the Yas Links golf club at Cipriani last night, great night was had by all.
They did a selection of starters, salads, a pasta, and veal tonnino.
Hammour or chicken for main course
selection of pasteries and cakes for desert

Wow, It was all I could do to move afterwards the food was stunning.

The only downside is the noise of the venue, there is very little sound dampening there, marble floors, floor to ceiling glass windows, dropped hard ceiling, it was difficult to hear the people on the otherside of a round table of 8 people.

“Agree with the general view of previous comments”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

My expectation (based on reading previous TA reviews) was that it was going to be a nice place with average food.
I would agree.
Food not really worth the prices they charge but it is a nice looking place to be.
Sirloin burger was not even close to a Wagyu burger from Jones the Grocer yet was twice the price.
Also they keep pouring the bottled water, almost as if they are trying to get another bottle opened and charged to you (and it aint cheap). Not just a Cipriani thing though, many high end restaurants in Abu Dhabi do the same.
Probably won't return.
