Lovely atmosphere, in the warmth of the evening. Food was tasty and beautifully presented, and the service was excellent.

Enjoying the quality service and food of Vasco's is made more pleasant with the option of indoor and outdoor dining. Even in the summer heat the outdoor setting is a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life with the greenery of the trees and the sea a stones throw away. For the wine connoisseur good food is complemented by a vino collection that is world class. Foe the romantic couple or the larger sophisticated group Vasco's provides a quality moment away from a busy day, or a complementary experience to a good holiday

This is one of those places that you have to come back to again and again.

Here is the one thing you have to try out:
The lobster: it has a lovely cheese sauce on it thats to die for. They also serve a great lobster pasta that is great.

Service is attentive and our waiter Melo was extremely helpful.

The outdoor seating area is lovely... but it does get too hot in the Abu Dhabi summers, so get a table indoors.

The food at Vasco's in Abu Dhabi, part of the Hilton Hotel, is very good, especially if related to the price. For all tastes, the formerly Portuguese restaurant, has some food available, all at a good standard and tasty. Service is excellent, while ambiance is good enough to enjoy even a very hot evening. To be recommended for a business lunch up to cosy (not in summer outside) dinner with your loved ones.
