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.

“Great new menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I had a great business lunch with a fantastic view thrown in. Seafood risotto was outstanding and the curry cod was beautifully presented and exquisite. A beautiful and reasonably priced Chablis washed it all down. The new menu gives even more enticing options as well.

“Poor Service, no atmosphere.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

I was very disappointed with my recent visit to Scott's restaurant whilst on holiday in Abu Dhabi. I ordered the Curry Roasted Cod which arrived at my table cold. I asked the waitress if she could take it back and heat it up quickly, which she agreed to do. When the dish was returned to me the fish was still cold. I complained again and our waiter asked would I like to choose something else on the menu, by this stage the other diners with me had finished their main course - So I saw no point in ordering a new dish to eat on my own.

We sat at a table outside and there are not many tables outside, it is very quiet with no soft background music. We found it lacked atmosphere. What I saw in Abu Dhabi would not encourage me to visit Scott's in London. Overall I found this restaurant was over priced and lacked atmosphere. The food was not great and the service was below average. When a restaurant cannot follow simple instructions to heat up food, it is very poor in my opinion. I have to say I visited far superior restaurants in Abu dhabi in the Hilton Hotel and Emirates Palace and would not recommend this restaurant.

“Lovely evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We really enjoyed our meal in Scott's. We had the smallest portion of caviar just as a taster, never having had it before. It was beautifully served and very tasty. I then had prawns in orange and lime jus followed by seabass. My husband razor clams then kingfish. All the food was delicious, cooked well, and again beautifully presented. We didn't have desserts but did have a portion of the chocolate truffles - yummy!

The decor is gorgeous but unfortunately lacking in atmosphere. There were only 4 other tables occupied. I think it was because we were there on a Friday night (Friday being brunch day!). But our waiter was very knowledgeable, attentive and interesting. He recommended the most delicious dessert wine and was very kind in getting the label off the bottle for me to take away.

I would definitely visit again, just not on a Friday night.

And ladies be careful on the walk out to the restaurant. You have to cross a lot of decking and the heels of my Christian Louboutins (sorry not meaning to name drop but I'm sure you understand my concern) got stuck between 2 boards. Thankfully the heels weren't damaged but I'll know next time to take extra care.

“Beautiful Restaurant, Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Excellent location and ambiance, food was ok but below expectations. Food lacks in creativity and presentation. They certainly know how to cook good sea food and restaurant's retro decor is great. Paid a lot of money for the meal, but overall not overwhelmed by the experience.
