The area beside the bar should be the smokers zone and the two regions beyond should both be non smoking.

“Quick and light dinner”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We just popped in for a quick meal and chose this particular restaurant, within the hotel, as it appeared fairly economical and served a la carte. There was a good range of dishes to choose from and widely priced so we decided on pizza. I usually have something that can't usually be badly cooked on a first visit. The pizzas were fine, well cooked and large enough to enjoy. There were only three to choose between and simple garnishes, for me, are usually preferable. Certainly not artichokes and turkey bacon, or whatever.
The service was a bit slow, despite the restaurant not being very busy, and the first young waitress was slightly frumpy. The male waiter did seem a little too aristocratic to deal with customers, but that may be a cultural thingy as one sometimes experiences.
Overall, not bad and worht going back.

“Eclectic gastronomy with an Asian accent”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Teatro is a very successful local brand that started out in Dubai, were it reigned as the hottest spot in town for a while. The menu is pretty eclectic with a wide selection of Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Thai and Malaysian dishes, coupled with Italian desserts. For the most part these are not simply selections of regional cuisine, but Teatro's own takes on these.

For example, the butter chicken was cooked with cardamom, which gave this popular dish a great local flavor that worked well. The food is consistently good, including the sushi which is not always the case in non-specialist restaurants. The classics - like the yellow and black dhal (lentils) and Thai prawn curry - were impeccable.

This place works equally well for a dinner with friends or for business, with the only downside being the smoking (though more symptomatic of Abu Dhabi than Teatro). Service is excellent but as in many larger places, those going with a larger group need to make sure orders are processed smoothly and dishes are brought out in an orderly manner.

The large chefs table nearer the kitchen is probably more insulated from the smoke (good ventilation) and gives diners a chance to watch the chefs at work.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Had a family dinner on a Thursday night, good selection on the menu both food and beverage, there is something for everyone, sushi, Chinese, Indian, Italian ....the chocolate fondant is a must and you have to wait 15mins but so worth it. Food was good and presented nicely, only negative feedback is the service was not on par in comparison to other restaurant in Abu Dhabi..

“Pricey but worth a try”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Heard a lot about Teatro at Park Rotana and decided to give a try.

The selection is extensive enough so that, you can find almost every thing there, including Thai, Chinese, Japanese and Indian.

My dish is delicious and nicely presented. The restaurant was busy - hence the service is slight delay. However, it was a joyful evening.

I would love to come back!
