Lamb was fatty and chewy. Steak nothing to write home about.. Felt a little robbed when bill arrived. Service was just okay. Over rated! Try somewhere else. Some tables have nice views over to the Grand Mosque.

Never sure if Mombassa has decided what sort of restaurant it wants to be. Somewhat overly formal it is rather lacking in atmosphere. Menu is also a bit random, but dishes well executed and service obliging.

Wetried Mombasa Grille in response to positive reviews on TripAdvisor, it was better than average but I would not say it was fab, the food was rather tasty but there didn't seem like much choice. Staff weren't particularly attentive - water ran out but they never offered a refill. We would go back but not very often.

My wife and I went for a birthday meal on 31 Aug 2011. We're Brits and have been in Abu Dhabi for 2 years. Heard a lot about this place from friends so thought we'd finally go. The orange juice was warm. We had to ask for ice. The ice didn't come with a smile. The waiter said that they... More
