I was there for the Friday Brunch, it was Ok, lots of choices, but nothing so special or memorable about it !
You can find the same dishes in other brunches with almost half the price.
You can count on the view, as you are seeing Abu Dhabi & Khaleej Arabi street from 18th floor, which you cannot find else where.
When I reserved the restaurant, they told me "kids are not allowed, please keep them at home that day". Unfortunately, lots of kids were there with their families !! then why its only me ??
I don't think I will be back there, I prefer Family Brunches, for the joy of the whole family.

On our arrival we found that our booking had disappeared from the computer. Food was of good quality but overpriced compared to other hotels of a similar standard in Abu Dhabi. The biggest disappointment was the view, we had been led to believe that it would be more spectacular of the city. Instead it is rather of the main road in the suburb. An extra drink had been inserted into our bill. Disappointing in a hotel of this class. Check your bill carefully! In summary, if the hotel reduced its price then this would be a worthwhile experience that as it is it's overpriced And others are better in town.

My friends and I visited 18 degrees for Friday brunch and had an absolutely amazing time. The food was delicious!! There was sooooo much to choose from...seafood, desserts, meats, main dishes and sides. Wonderful service and free-flowing bubbly. Put on some comfy pants with an elastic waist and go!

It was New Year's Eve so I suppose some degree of understanding should be given.

However service was appalling. Food (when it came) was very good. Nice setting and would really need to go on a normal night for a balanced view.
