“Nice place with a talented Pianist”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Went for the first time with 10 other people for a birthday gathering.
The place is nice, we were placed inside as the weather was starting to get hot.

The waitress who served our table was very attentive and sweet, unfortunately i didnt get her name. They were thankfully very patient with us while we decided what to order. I got the gnocchi pasta with cheese sauce and pumpkins. I liked it, not a big portion but the sauce was heavy i barely managed to finish my dish.

Everyone seemed to be content with their orders. A pleasant experience over all.

notes:
-Our precious purses get a small table to sit on too, talk about spoiling :)
-We had a cake brought in for the occasion, no extra charge :)
-There was a lovely Pianist/singer entertaining during the evening, even played happy birthday when the cake came in. (not sure if he is there always, we were there on a thursday)
-Bar area has nice sofa's can be a nice place for a quite date (not a first date though).
-Some of my friends found it hard picking what to take as there wasn't many familiar dishes.

“Nice setting, good food”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This is one of a string of neighboring large restaurants in a very upgrade Abu Dhabi hotel. The cuisine is Italian. We sat outside (in the evening) with a very pleasant view over the lagoon. The menu choices were quite eclectic. Service was excellent and the food was very well presented and prepared. Overall, we enjoyed our meal very mucht, and would likely return, given another opportunity.

“Excellent service- food a bit bland”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

A shame that Monday nights are a quiet affair at Bice- we were one of the first to arrive, and unfortunately ended up seated looking at a building site. The food promised a lot, but what was served was either a little bland or overly sauced/ portioned which did not wow.
Expected a lot more so perhaps expectations were misplaced. Service was excellent and wine list was incredibly reasonable and varied.

“Wonderful food”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I have enjoyed dinner at BiCH twice in the last two months and really enjoy the food. The service the second visit was poor as we had to ask for menus, and track down the waiters to take our order. The restaurant is located by the pool, so be prepared if you plan on eating on the patio for swimmers and lifeguard whistles. I recommend the crab cake, beef tenderloin, and I also had a wonderful citrus salad.

“Average italian cuisine, awkward service”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Had a dinner with a large party of family and friends. We were around 8 and sat out near the pool. Choices on the menu are very average and typical italian dishes. Food tasted good but service was too awkward and sometimes slow. Overpriced for the value you receive.
