The restaurant is part of Shangri-La Abu Dhabi. The restaurant was closed in April 2017. The hotel plans to remodel and do another type of restaurant. The staff did not know when. Too bad. Nice location on the water.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. It is beautifully decorated. We had a selection of tapas dishes, a paella and beef dish and deserts and all the food was excellent and beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly and efficient. This is a great place to enjoy Spanish food.

(And we are from Spain) Throughout several dinners we had different types of paella and hardly ever you will find a better place for paellas in the whole Spain. The modern tapas selection... More

For my meal, The appetizers were great (took the bread with tomatoes and oil whatever it is and the fois gras ravioli). The main course was ok but not as special (paella). Dessert,... More

The DJ killed it! Hip hop and R&B music. It was fun just to watch him do his thing! Tapas were so good!

Pears and Caviar is maybe not the easiest place to reach but it is worth all the efforts. It is part of a beautiful hotel and is well situated. The restaurant itself has good drinks to offer for who wants to use it late eve as a bar, but the restaurant is high quality. The tapas offer is excellent, tasting... More

Food and ambience was amazing as we expected from Sergi Arola, same quality of Sergi Arola restaurant in Barcelona from where we are and we tried several times there. Sure we will repeat as food, climate, place and views are amazing. I just missed a Vallet Parking, we had to park by our self.

The Pearl & Caviar restaurant was a total let down - It markets itself as a high class fish restaurant but when we went there al the fish dishes were off as they had run out of fish!! For the prices they charge, you would expect the fish (When it has been delivered) to be local, fresh and top quality.... More
