We visited on a cool and windy day and therefore missed out on al fresco dining which I gather might make the ambiance of this restaurant since the interiors are a bit cold and bland. That said we enjoyed our experience, the food was expertly crafted mixing genuine inspiration to the odd fancy pants chef licence which, perhaps in tune... More

Everything about our dinner was perfect. The food--fish, of course--was delicious. We had salmon and filet of sole. The setting (outside) could not have been better. Service was excellent. Don't miss an opportunity to dine at this restaurant.

I wish we had discovered the Sayad earlier in our week. The meal we enjoyed was excellently cooked and presented. The quality of the food was outstanding. So much so that choosing a favourite course is impossible. The staff were all attendant without being overbearing. Their manner was expertly professional and their friendliness was equally evident. The ambience in the... More

We have had the opportunity to enjoy the amazing Michelin Star asian menu. That was one of the best dining experiences of my life. The food was delicious and the presentation and chef interaction with the guest was extraordinary. We will remember this evening for years. Greatly recommended to visit.

We’ve been to the Sayed before when we did stay at the Emirates a year ago. It’s so great to see that a restaurant can maintain their own standard for such a long time. Service staff is super friendly always up for a quick chat and makes you feel very welcome, the food is simply excellent and they’ve adapted their... More

If you're after some of the freshest seafood in Abu Dhabi, and price is not an issue, go for this place. We truely enjoyed everything we tried there, including the drinks. It's pricy but so worth it.

Finally after so many years living in Abu Dhabi, this was my and my wife's first New Year's Eve at The Palace. We already had dined a few times before at the Sayad, so the superb quality of this primarily seafood restaurant was really not a surprise to us. This special outside dinner however surpassed our highest expectations, after opening... More
