“Rose Water, Great Place for friends gathering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

I consider “Rose Water” as one of the best hotel-restaurants in Abu Dhabi. Offers buffet with vast selection of dishes that can suit any taste. The list includes international, meditation, Indian, Japanese and more. The dessert selection cannot be resisted. Sufficient space with Indoor and outdoor seating overlooking water pools.

“Superb Bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

I spent 10 days in UAE recently based in Abu Dhabi. Signed up to Groupon before going and bought this amazing offer at the rosewater. International buffet dinner for 2 persons including 2 drinks each for a ridiculous price of £25 each. I have never experienced service like it. The matre de Joseph was a lovely man who took care of our every need. Daisey explained how it all worked when we arrived and the food was out of this world and you could go back as many times as you wanted too. The fresh seafood station and the hot meat station were fabulous. Don't hesitate just book here.
