“Superb”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Fantastic service, although at one point we were the only customers in the restaurant (Ramadan and World Cup). Attentive service. Food cooked to perfection. Bottled water very overpriced paid £5 per bottle ++. First time ate Lebanese food, will not be the last.

“Impecable service”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

The presentation of dishes - both the physical items used for service and the food layout - are really neat and creative. The service is also amazing and really makes the dinner experience what it is.

The portion sizes were proper. The food was good and prepared well done.

The view is also pretty neat. You have a water view and view of the hotel pool / beach area. It's a nice peaceful view for the sunset, at least in the summer when the pool isn't really busy.

This restaurant is located on level P2 of the hotel. If you enter the building complex from the hotel lobby and go to the lifts you have to hit first the "P" button and then the number "2" button to get to the floor of the restaurant.

“Awesome”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

This restaurant was wonderful. The setting is classy, with silver plates and a great atmosphere.
I went with a friend, the restaurant is definitely great for dates, but I saw also groups of friends that were having a great time.

The food was outstanding, get the appetizer's combo, we had such a great time tasting everything. Main dishes outstanding.

I will definitely go back in the future to have a great meal again ;)

“Superb, authentic cuisine prepared by exquisite chef”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

My husband and I had dinner there twice during our trip to Abu Dhabi. The chef , Mahmoud Efranjyeh takes a personal interest in each diner and his love for unique yet authentic taste in every dish is extraordinary. The Baba Ganoush is out of this world. smoky aubergine (eggplant) with pomegranate and beautiful seasoning. I had the zataar coated lamb, perfectly cooked with a rich beautiful truffle reduction and creamy parsnip purée. Seriously the best lamb dish I've had and I love my lamb! My husband had the sea bass which was tender and spiced perfectly without being overwhelming. The chef game over personally to thank us for coming and ensure we were happy with the experience. I highly recommend this restaurant for a business dinner or a fine meal on any occasion.
