“Very good choice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

Fairways provides a wide range of choices every day. I have never had a bad dish, and the service is excellent. The setting and decor is fun and relaxed. One deficiency is that they never have bananas available at breakfast. Fix that please! Still, all in all a great choice for a business dinner or a family outing.

“Awesome brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Fairways offers a fantastic spread for the Friday "Bubbalicious" brunch - there is simply everything available, and the waiters are "fast enough" that everyone gets their money's worth on the beverage packages.....

The best Abu Dhabi brunch I've been to :-)

“Slipping standards or a one-off poor experience?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

I've been to Fairways at the Westin a few times over the years since it opened, for Christmas Lunch, Friday Brunch, Iftar during Eid and also for the lobster-special Claws Night. On each occasion we've had excellent meals. The Westin's brunch in particular is deservedly popular, although I think it may be becoming the victim of its own success - the last time I went they had squeezed so many people into the space available that the restaurant was complete pandemonium. Our table didn't even have enough spaces for the number booked for, so we had to arrange a sort of ad hoc "hot-seating" system.

Anyway this was the first time I'd visited for their regular dinner buffet on a Thursday evening and it was a little disappointing, certainly by way of comparison with previous visits. Service was a bit sloppy and not particularly friendly - getting drinks topped up was particularly hard work. The selection of food wasn't quite as wide or as interesting as I'd expected. Highlights were the sushi, sashimi, dim sum. A roast lamb looked good but was very poor - tough and tasteless - but chicken dishes were much better. The selection of desserts was limited, although the many flavours of ice cream were excellent.

Dinner costs Dh180++ or Dh270++ with drinks. The drinks package is pretty good, as it includes beers, wines and spirits, in fact pretty much anything bar cocktails. Entertainer vouchers are worth Dh180++ off the bill whichever package you choose, which is fair enough, so with a voucher two of us ate and drank for a very reasonable Dh420 (US115).

Since I first went here one Christmas Day I've always thought of the Westin as having one of the best buffets in town. Now I'm not so sure. Maybe this was just an off night, or maybe the normal evening buffet isn't to the same standard as the special occasion meals. Either way, there are now some really excellent buffets to be had at some of the newer hotels in Abu Dhabi, and the nearby Shangri La is also consistently good, so it would be unfortunate if the Westin allow their standards to slip.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

This is the main restaurant in the Westin where you have breakfast, lunch and dinner served. Breakfast is a full buffet although there are menu items if you prefer not to have the buffet. The choices are large and everyone can find plenty to satisfy their taste buds at breakfast. Plenty of hot and cold items as well as live cooking stations.

Dinner is a set priced buffet and has an array of dishes from different parts of the world and again something to suit everybody. There are themed nights such as Claws, so make sure you check out which night is your preferred one.

A great place to eat and good food, which is why it is the main eatery at the Westin. Would recommend you eat here if staying or nearby.

“a nice place to go to”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

if you want to try something new and nice, this an option you should go for.

the place is located just next to the golf course, which make the view amazing from the inside and the outside,

food is very nice and diverse, the main course buffet has lots of options that you can go for.

the salad buffet is fairly good,

sweets bar extensive and lots of good options.

services wise, the staff there is very good, smiley and nice, whenever you look, they will be around you,

we had a walk after iftar, although it was summer, but it was very nice, that night's weather was very nice.

try it, you will love it.
