As guests of the Park Hyatt on Saadiyat, and we love the Hyatt Brand, to dine here was a must, it was our first visit to 18 Degrees which was truly fabulous. Situated in the Embassy District of the city, the impressive Leaning Tower of Pisa hotel starts on the 18th floor and upwards. After leaving the lift the reception... More

A peaceful and relaxing experience, with well crafted dishes. The venison with pomegranate and blue berry quinoa was fantastic, as was the ahi tuna with capers. I'm a sucker for sea bream ceviche so it was an easy win for me, and the lamb was also quite nice. The service was very attentive, and the view in the evening was... More

This is the only restaurant in Hyatt Capital Gate but food is good enough to eat there throughout your stay at the hotel. It is located on 18th floor hence the name of the restaurant and panorama view. The staff tried hard to please

Have taken the business lunch a few times over the past months. Pretty good value if you are resident office staff, but the full price version is a bit steep at AED104 per head considering the number of dishes.
