Everything about our dinner was perfect. The food--fish, of course--was delicious. We had salmon and filet of sole. The setting (outside) could not have been better. Service was excellent. Don't miss an opportunity to dine at this restaurant.

If you're after some of the freshest seafood in Abu Dhabi, and price is not an issue, go for this place. We truely enjoyed everything we tried there, including the drinks. It's pricy but so worth it.
