“Memorable, Beautiful”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

A visually stunning and opulent French restaurant with a genuine French Maitre D'! (a rarity in UAE). I had the Lobster bisque which was amazing and he had the Steak tartare served theatre style at the table. They topped up the delicious, fresh baked bread and kept our glasses well filled. Then I had the Veal Blanquette which was incredible, while he had duck. Overall an exceptional experience, fine dining that wasn't overdone or too deferential. A very romantic experience and excellent value for money (except on wine, which is the case in most restaurants)

“Delicious food, elegant and warm atmosphere, great service”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

This is our go to night out restaurant whether it's for a family (adult only) celebration or quiet date night for 2, or when we just feel like a quick (or leisurely) drink at the bar. The decor is elegant but still warm and comfortable. The lighting is low enough that it feels like an intimate evening out but not too dark that you can't see the menu. While it is intimate and romantic it still feels entirely appropriate to dine with a colleague or friend.

Food is classic French, with many different options to suit everyone's fancy. I love the cheese soufflé and wild mushroom sides, but have had delicious lobster, amazing scallops, just to name a few. The dessert trolley is a standout with perfect lemon tarts.

Service is always friendly without being intrusive. Wine list is great with many wines you cannot find anywhere else in Abu Dhabi. The staff is also very good at selecting wines for you even if you can't bring yourself to consult with the down to earth sommelier (who is excellent).

Ladies, the powder room is really beautiful with metalwork shelf your handbag so it does not have to sit on he floor.

If you are looking for a First class dining experience in Abu Dhabi you can't go wrong here.

“Quiet classy chic”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We have tried many restaurants in Abu Dhabi as we are regular visitors to the Emirates. I must admit this was certainly one of the best ! It's a bit of a cross between the Belle Époque south of France type restaurants and the Yorkshire institution of Betty's high class but traditional tea rooms with a delicious selection of patisserie, eclair and gateaux etc served from a modern chilled sweet trolley.
The decor is predominantly black and cream with classic chandeliers . The atmosphere is friendly and the staff are welcoming . Food lovers will find it difficult to choose from a varied mouth watering menu . The food is beautifully presented and the execution of the dishes is faultless. The sommelier helped with wine pairing suggestions and the maître d was chatty and attentive .
We had some memorable food in paris at Easter but this meal was superb ... A little taste of France in the emirates !!!
After our meal on leaving we were escorted to the door and offered a taxi back to our hotel. It is the attention to the small details that makes this brasserie stand out from the rest.
