If you love a luxurious bbq, then dining at BBQ Al Qasr is an experience you will not want to miss. This unique outdoor restaurant is an exciting feast for all your senses, with the world-class chefs preparing your bbq dishes, the tantalising food aromas in the air, and the textures of perfectly seasoned hot steaks and seafood. The discerning locals of the city know that nothing compares to the BBQ Al Qasr experience! If you adore a barbecue dining experience, BBQ Al Qasr in Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace is simply the finest of beachside dining in Abu Dhabi. Located near the sea, you will have a chance to take in the stunning views of the white sandy beachfront, while indulging in a luxurious barbecue. Your anticipation and appetite will build as you catch the scent of Arabian shisha, the salty balm of the sea air and the blend of grilled food aromas around you.

With a BBQ offering of seafood, char-grilled meats, freshly baked breads, salads and sweets, BBQ Al Qasr presents an exceptional menu that will more than satisfy even the healthiest of appetites. Treat yourself to world-class service Emirates Palace is known for and is proud of, while enjoying the famous Abu Dhabi BBQ. Stay on, relax and chat over a shisha, mint tea or a drink at the comfortable lounge of the restaurant. As with famous dining locations in any city of the world, do book early at the weekends if you are planning your evening at the best BBQ in Abu Dhabi!

The food was to die for and huge portions. The setting was beautiful. There is nothing quite like sitting outside with the sounds of the beach and looking at a beautifully lite up Emirates Palace at night.

“Lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Went there with my husband in the evening and decided just to have drinks - the seats were facing the sea and candles were dotted around with the magnificent Qasr behind us. It was very romantic :) They had good selections of wine, cocktails and anything you think of _ I really loved it there and will be going back again whenever I'm in Abu Dhabi

“Birthday celebration dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

This is the 2nd time I have the opportunity to have dinner in the BBQ Al Qasr in the Emirates Palace....
I believe that this is one of the best restaurants I have had dinner in.
I would strongly suggest to book for a dinner (of course during the winter season) sitting in one of the cabinets on the beach facing the exotic sea view and your back-drop will be the fully lighted fabulous Emirates Palace.
I would also suggest to order a medium-well done Chateaubriand, this must be the best Chateaubriand I have ever had... simply delicious and juicy.

“Excellent outdoor location”

Next to the private beach. Good food but the service could be quite slow on weekends. With low lights and chalets built it and idea sit around with family & friends on cooler nights.
