“Exquisite!”

Description: Scott’s is not just any seafood restaurant - it's the seafood restaurant - of London. For the first time in its 160 year history, Scott's is opening in a new location in the heart of Abu Dhabi. Offering the finest oysters, fish and crustacean, as well as seasonal game, meat and vegetarian dishes, the decor of this rare and exquisite escape is as dramatic as its location over water.

Normally one to avoid British food when abroad, I read the reviews and decided to give Scott's a try. I'm so glad I did! The service was faultless and the young French wine waiter extremely knowledgeable.

The food really was exquisite: my starter was the shellfish bisque which had a rich and creamy full flavour; it really was delightful. I followed this with their 'posh' version of fish, chips and mushy peas; what can I say? The generous portion of flavoursome haddock was beautifully cooked and the batter incredibly light and crisp. This was served on a bed of lightly minted, pureed peas with a portion of perfectly prepared hand cut chunky chips.

The whole dining experience was perfect , I will definitely recommend this restaurant, and if I'm ever in Abu Dhabi again I will head straight out to Scott's, hopefully with friends next time.

I had waited a year for this to open and it is an impressive building stretching out over the water away from the Jumeirah Etihad Towers hotel. It is busy for both lunch and dinner and you do see some amazing cars driving up !
We had drinks at the bar - good and good atmosphere. I was surprised the choice of seafood seemed limited and probably due to that made the wrong choice - so our meal was quite average. We did though enjoy the service and location and would go back again.

We've enjoyed our diner at Scott's last Monday. I ordered the tiger prawns and the salmon risotto, and it was delicious! The host Nikholas was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He really made us feel welcome!

We had diner with people who were considering to work and live in Abu Dhabi. This stylish restaurant, the super-friendly host and the good food may have contributed to their decision to join to Abu Dhabi! Can recommend this restaurant, especially with drinks at Ray's bar before having dinner.

Honestly , I go there for the dessert and atmosphere . It is a good place to go with friends and have a good laugh.


The food gets boring by your 2nd or 3rd visit , there is absolute no revamping of the menu or the food taste.

The shrimp and escalope are good , but the lobster is very un-fulfilling and tasteless.

I always go for the expensive items and usually get disappointed every time with both the taste and presentation. The food is soulless and no passion in the making can be felt.

BUT ! The service is EXCELLENT , the waiters are always smiling and more than willing to help.

Regards
