SITUATED next to the marina at Al Bandar at Raha Beach, this isn't an obvious tourist stop.
That said, it's not far from the airport or Yas Island, so if you are staying nearby it's worth a look.
It's a bit on the pricey side with a minimum spend of 120aed, which rules out a stop for just a coffee, but the food is fab - and it has a drinks license without it being part of a hotel (unusual in these parts).
The setting is smart with views towards the city and Yas Island and the ambience very cool, although every time I have been it's been rare to see any of the staff smiling (maybe because that would be uncool).

We have been for drinks many times but where always put off to have the food due to bad reviews and people telling us the food was not good. We decided to try for ourselves last week. What a surprise, the tapas where excellent, huge portions, served hot as it should be. We will be returning for sure. It's a lovely place to chill and watch the sunset

Ornina is good place to end up your day with in AD. It's a bit far from the city, which makes it relaxing. Nice and wonderful ppl, especially Mr. Thomas. He is very hospitable and wonderful person. He always makes sure his guests feel home. I recommend hanging out with friends at Ornina.
