Our last evening in Abu Dhabi we thought we would save the best 'til last, although we did question this?
Everything started off okay, although our table was by the noisy kitchen so we moved to a quieter area, which was better, then the waiter greeted us saying he will take care of us for the evening and asked if we would like any water, we said yes then he gives us details of all the different types of water and 1 was the best water you can ever have? We just wanted a bottle of still water?
Then a large trunk is shown to you with several different champagnes, and standing prominent is a bottle of Dom Perignon so we knew this experience was going to be a very expensive one, however we requested a glass each of pink champagne and shown verve clicquot which was lovely!
Whilst drinking our champagne and taking in the view and surroundings we were given nuts, popcorn and bread, and some palette cleanser, then our order was taken.
Before we could finish our champagne and nibbles the starter came, which was literally 5 mins after our order was taken, we felt as though we were being rushed and our wine order had even been delivered to our table!
We had to request some time as we wanted to finish our champagne and nibbles, I hadnt even had my palette cleanser as I wanted to have this before I started to eat but they were ready to take this away, so soon after it was given?
Our starter was lovely when we were ready, then the waiter did politely ask if we would like some time between our next course, so I think they understood, we don't like to rush, we requested 15/20 mins, which was granted.
Mains were good although they do like their sauces to be almost treacle like so our food tasted lovely but looked very dark in colour I had seafood, and my wife had tenderloin.
We did order desert and had the chocolate tasting which had some great textures and was fun to eat, then we were presented with a lovely chocolate cake and chocolates, which we took away with us.
Overall we did have a lovely albeit expensive evening, but we have had better dining experiences , would we go again, probably not, as there are too many other good restaurants out there.
