“Deep in the glitzy palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

The Brasserie Vendome is a buffet restaurant located deep in the glitzy Emirates Palace hotel. You can get there if you are not a hotel guest just by taking a cab to the hotel and walking in. Friendly staff will help you. Seeing the hotel itself is already worth the effort.

We visited during Ramadan after breaking the fast with a luxury buffet for a sportive price of 261 dirham. Quite good wine was available by the glass and the bottle. The food was good and very varied but not outstandingly good. Especially the desserts looked very good but the taste was slightly disappointing. Starters and fresh fish very good. Service was good, it did take staff about 10 minutes to set up a table for four in a not too bus restaurant but we could live with that.

“Venue special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is the third year running I have been with friends to celebrate my birthday. The venue is what does it for us. Rather glamorous and different. The buffet is good, although not outstanding. They seemd to have paired down the selection of cold choices. I have always been given a beautiful birthday cake, at no request, which finishes off the meal on a good note. The staff are accommodating and friendly without being obtrusive and nothing is too much trouble. To sit outside is an experience in itself.

“Best Buffet in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

If you are going to Abu Dhabi then you should make sure you visit the Emirates Palace Hotel and have a fantastic lunch or dinner at Le Vendome Brasserie. It serves the best buffet (in my opinion) in Abu Dhabi, the atmosphere and service is fantastic. There is a very good and varied selection of food on offer from seafood to hot roasts of meat and the dessert bar has something for everyone with a sweet tooth. The price is on par with many of the other 5+ star rated hotels in the city, so if you want a romantic dinner for two, a family get together or a special celebration then go and enjoy at Le Vendome Brasserie.

“good selection but not luxury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

Tried the dinner last month, food was ok only.

Good selection but not luxury, loved the dessert table there and salad bar but not the hot section which was very common, compare with other 5 star hotel's buffet, this one is not that excellent.
