We were ecstatic when this new hotel opened in Abu Dhabi and especially being a Catalan restaurant . For those who have visited Catalonia the sea food was very delicious .
Unfortunately this wasn't the case . It turned out to be a failed attempt at Catalonian "nouvelle cuisine" . The food was below average in both quality and quantity . The fish was inedible so was the paella . The service , although they were trying very hard , was also pretty bad . You can tell the staff wasn't well trained . Actually this is a problem with the whole hotel . They have a communication problem and their English is pretty weak(last night i tried Sambousek the Lebanese restaurant ) . I'm not sure where the staff is from but they need a lot of work for a predominantly English speaking industry .
Finally and worst of all are the acoustics . You literately can't hear the person next to you speak . They have to urgently do something about that .
