“Nice way to chill”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I've been in Abu Dhabi for visits but last week was my first time to go to Saadiyat Island. The restaurant was amazing, the place was stunning.

You'd like to go there on a weekend and enjoy the view and the breeze. Drink your glass of beer slowly and wait for the food to arrive. This place is no fast food, the uniqueness of each plate was presented really well.

I'd go back again and again. Kudos to the team!

“Poor fishy experience”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Was recommended this restaurant by staff whilst staying at the St Regis- this restaurant does the hotel no favours. freezing cold, staff are wearing jeans and coats, wine unavailable that we ordered, mediocre food ( fries consists of 5- yes 5 fries!) I had the full Canadian lobster- I've had larger prawns- I did give feed back to the kitchen but was told that is what they are like,? The desert ordered was unavailable - people were moving around the restaurant because they were cold - not impressed for our first night dining 5* St Regis - fish and chips at home have been better

“poor Service”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Went for a drinkwith my mother today. The view is really nice. We ordered two coffees and some fries. It took 20 minutes before we got someone to take our order.then we waited 40 minutes to first get our fries(although there were only five other people in the restaurant). No napkins , the waitor brought a small bowl of fries and some ketchup and mayo and left. No asking if we needed anything else! Then 10 minutes later we got our lattes which were so weak we had to ask if they had forgotten to add the coffee to the milk! they cordially apologized and got us two new ones which tasted better. Then the bill came for 84 dirhams which was OK had webeen given a better service. All in all the view is really nice but the service is poor and the staff definitely need training. Disappointing!

“Food not worthy of the setting”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Dined at Turquoiz this evening..sat outside next to the beach..lovely setting..menu looked promising..appetizer of squid rings good..good French mini baguettes too..however, seafood with pasta not great, rather odd fishy taste..grilled pawns ok, but not better than that..good service, but disappointing dining experience.

“Amazing views Avg service”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Nothing better than a Amazing beach front view to unwind with after a long day at work although I wished the service was as amazing as the view, still a great place to go just make sure the staff don't change shifts and forget about you.
