“Outstanding food, tasty drinks, and excellent service”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

One of my co-workers raved about this restaurant so we had to go there. He was correct, it is outstanding. The decor was magnificent. The service was excellent. The food was out of this world, and the drinks were absolutely delicious. I had the co-worker suggested dish with the four items of duck, pork belly, lamb and sausage, after my appetizer with scallops, and had the nerve to top it off order an ice-cream dessert, that was absolutely delicious as well and that put me over the top. I just could not stop eating until it was all, and I mean all gone. i finally was able to waddle out of the restaurant after negotiating my steps. Not from the delicious drinks, but from the delicious and plentiful food. A little more pricy then the average restaurant, but worth it!

“Fancy place but ....”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have to say that the moment that you step into this restaurant you can feel the embrace of and old-school french restaurant . The atmosphere is very good and the hostess and maitre really do a good and cosy job .
But( there's always a but) the food is not what i was expecting for such beautiful place . Was not bad , of course , but not excelent . Just normal . And is not enough . Abu Dhabi is full of new restaurants and if you want to be on the top you have to improve always .
The beef tartar was good , made in front of you for the maitre ( great show ) but the quantity was very poor , and the toasted bread served as side was tasteless .
The tenderloin was also good but nothing special . Why not to try to surprise the guest with a good sauce or an amazing side dish ? The word 'french' comes to my mind to remember all the food that you can find in that country .
The mushrooms in square toasted bred with cheese was good but not special .
The desserts trolley , well done Brasserie ! It's nice to see that kind of things in a restaurant from today . The chocolate cake , very good and tasty .
The service was very attentive and gentle .
So , at all , was good , but the place must fit with the food that you serve . And for the price you pay , it's mandatory .

“Feels like france in UAE/ comme a la maison aux emirats”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We happen to travel in different places all around the world but we live in Paris.
This restaurant seems to me like the plazza athenee in Paris, excellent service, really fast and efficient, kind, available and polite staff. The manager come to every table to see if its ok. He came to make a tour of the etihad towers to show us the great view from the very top.
As for the food, i had the snails cooked in a delicious butter , really like the ones from the country side of France (Bourgogne), my hubby took the beef tartare , fresh made in front of him, then I had the mariniere musles (exactly just lile rhe one in Normandy!) and my hubby took the delicious and tender kobbe beef...
As for the desert i suggest some classic like the paris-brest and for the caramel lovers : the classic and best seller Creme
brûlee!
Enjoy your diner/lunch or drink at the nice bar aside and dont forget your passeport to travel to France.

Bravo Nicolas vous avez un excellent restaurant.

This brasserie is a really good address for those who like French cuisine. The foie gras and the moelle are amazing! When you go there, be sure to try the crepe suzette!!! The place is really nice and clean and the waiters especially Govindarao are really professionals! I will definitely go there on my next trip to the UAE and I recommend this brasserie!!
