Nice gazebos on the beach with a view of the Emirates palace and its bay.
Arabian mezze not particularly interesting, fish way over grilled, steak ok, desserts un-inventive ( had rhubarb crumble) Attentive service, pricewise on the high side

“Pricey - Excellent Food - Good (Not Great) Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

I ate here with 3 other colleagues while staying at the Emirates Palace. The atmosphere is amazing - Outdoors, on the beach, lit torches, beautiful. The food was delicious. I had the Arabic Roasted Chicken. At 170 AED (About $45+ USD), it needed to be fantastic and it was. The bread and dips were also excellent. Colleagues enjoyed their meals as well. Service was slow and somewhat inattentive.

There are less expensive places to eat in Abu Dhabi, but the view/atmosphere here is tops. Food is great - just expensive.

“Good food - great scenery!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Went here for dinner one evening - outdoor seating right on the beach - the ocean in front the majestic Emirates Palace in the background! Ordered their signature BBQ, the camel burger - different but very good! Good wine list and good service.

We finished our dinner with the Emirates Palace signature cappuccino - you find it in the restaurant/cafe inside the Emirates Palace. When in Abu Dhab; you just have to try the great coffee - "if it looks like gold it is gold"

“Romantic Gazebos...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

The place is magical for couples, specially in winter & spring seasons. Food presentation is fine, food quality is standard. I liked mostly the romantic atmosphere. finally I guess it worth trying!
