“Disappointing”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Not at all what we expected. The moules mariniére was cooked with chicken stock. And that's just the beginning. Avoid.

“Very good dining with a relaxing view on Abu Dhabi mangrove”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

I have already been dining at Flooka on 2 friendly occasions: in May at night for fine dinner, in June for lunch.
In both cases the experience proved successful.

The restaurant offers a fantastic quiet outdoor terrace with nice view on the mangrove: beautiful birds are offering a true show just for you.

The combination of mezze then seafood and fish is very original and tasty.
With our friends we tested as many dishes as possible: hammour, red snapper, kingfish,...
For the lunch we were proposed the special lunch set menu which proved amazing (I really liked the mezze such as batata harra, tajen samak, tuna tartar, grilled calamari and provencal calamari, lebanese fish sausages followed by machbous and grilled fish main dishes then excellent homemade sorbets).

The service is fast and efficient. Staff is helpful and nice.

We ended the lunch with a walk on the promenade facing the mangrove.
This place is really worth visiting.
