You can't visit because it is now shut! The website of the hotel says that it is open but it is closed pending refurbishment to another type of cuisine. Two of the other restaurants in the Grand Millenium hotel Abu Dhabi are also shut. Again the website does not indicate this. Instead it says that all restaurants are open. Very... More

The staff was attentive, the dishes prepared well, (will be adjusted if you make it clear you have a special request due to dietary restrictions). Good selection of dishes on the menu.

One of my favorite brunches when it was on Groupon, great food and drinks selection for the buck. Fun ambient and full of positive vibes. The pizza is perfect! The Full price seem a bit alot for a brunch in millennium grand. Alot of offers goes on there especially for Etihad staff.

Porto Bello, located at the grand millinium hotel Al wahda is a true taste of Italy. The lovely wine, delicious cheese, the authentic music, the whole menu as well as even the paintings on the wall - all Italy. For a second there I thought I was truly in Milan. The good is reasonably priced and worth your bucks worth.... More

Ok Italian food. Rather formal restaurant with a pianist and singer that was rather at odds with the theme and mood of the place IMHO. Staff were competent and attentive but the food was not a lot better than the Italian dishes that most of us can make at home at a price that was impossible to reconcile!

I met a few friends for lunch and we picked this restaurant because of the convenient location. Service was great and the food even better. I had the wild mushroom risotto with truffle, it was fantastic!!! I can definitely recommend this restaurant.

This little hidden gem in the Millennium hotel has a great atmosphere, great food and drinks. If we had not been dropped off at the wrong door we would not have walked by the entrance and heard the most spectacular voice singing. Go for the music alone or have a drink at the bar. The singer has piano and violin... More

We had several dinners and lunch at this restaurant. Personal (kevin) is very friendly and the food they serve is really great. Very tasty grilled salmon for lunch and the best steak sirloin for dinner. Good wines and tasty desserts
