We ate here twice in our one week stay in Abu Dhabi and loved it. A lovely location on the Emirates Palace private beach, with views of the gorgeous new (royal) palace.

You will have your own portion of private beach to enjoy beautiful views of the city and the water. The food and service is some of the best service and food and I've dined in Michelin Rated restaurants. While the food is spectacular, the dessert that we were presented with was world class. I would suggest that anyone who has... More
