Description: Bord Eau is the ultimate restaurant for French fine dining in Abu Dhabi. In the setting of a chic dining room that boasts opulent fabrics and furniture, the chef de cuisine prepares seasonal fresh produce flown in from France and serves each dish as an artistic expression. Bord Eau offers a superb a la carte menu and for the ultimate Bord Eau experience, the blind tasting menu is a must. Quiet instrumentals and a warm ambiance complement the rich gastronomy to create an intimate dining experience. To maintain a peaceful environment, children under 12 years old are not permitted in the restaurant.

We have been to Bord Eau several times in the past month. The setting is very nice but we go there for the food, which has always been great. They even offer frog legs and snails. The service is one of the best in Abu Dhabi, the manager is very knowledgeable when it comes to wine pairing in particular. By 'London standards' this restaurant would be a 7/10 in my opinion. We look forward to going back soon. Steak tartar last night was spectacular.

The Bord Eau restaurant is a very expensive, exclusive restaurant...but it´s worth each Dirham. We spent a wonderful, unforgettable evening there and everything was perfect.

The food is very good, the staff are friendly, attentive and likable and while the ambiance is a bit over the top, they manage to pull it off.

One of the best restaurants in Abu Dhabi,.

We were recommended to this restaurant by Friends and i must say its worth it!! Its not easy to find a place where you feel "wow" as you walk in. The atmosphere accentuates the mood for a romantic evening and the food was AMAZING!!! Chef Cyril was very kind to drop by our table and meet us in person.
We will definitely come back to Bord Eau. "The little Paris in Abu Dhabi"
