I have been living in Abu Dhabi for 2 years and I have always been a regular customer of this restaurant: this is maybe why I never considered to write something about it. But now that I don't live there anymore, even if I still go very frequently, I appreciate more and more the place and I always feel nostalgia of the times when I could enjoy it more often.
The atmosphere is really nice and cosy inside, while outside you can enjoy the view on the Galleria mall seaside promenade. The staff is very friendly and polite: they are almost all the same people as 3 years ago and they still remember and greet me every time making me feel welcome. I would especially like to mention Mr. Arghiris ( the manager ) and his vice, but also the girls from reception who still remember where I like to sit.
On top of everything the food is delicious ( my fav dish is beef tartare ) and cocktails superb ( I recommend the white sangria made with sparkling wine and the pepper caipiroska ).

This place is certainly the Buzz in the neighbourhood. Great menu...food and beverage. Such a well trained team of staff, ambience and music very lively and comforting.

I've been here twice and attended to by Anastasia. Service at its best with a smile. She's been very warm, welcoming and wonderful. This is how visitors turn into regulars...Kudos!!

The outside seating with the water view is exceptional.

Have been here a couple of times now & really like it. Crisp service, very good happy hour & very decent bistro/gastro-pub style food. The bar area gets noisy (actually the overly-loud music blasting from the speakers) but towards the back of the restaurant area this is not a problem. I can recommend the pie specials - regularly changing & delicious. Very important to note that its smoke-free - yes, a clean environment to dine & enjoy. All-in-all a winner. Will return.

The starters were excellent but the main course was not really that pleasant. Service left a lot to be desired. Frankly it was expensive for what it was. The manager did try and remedy the issues but far too late to make a difference.

The restaurant is divided into a bar and a restaurant. The theme and decorations of the place is great. The service is exceptional and extremely friendly.
The problem that I found is that the music in the background is very loud. I don't know if this is a regular, or our night there was only loud.
The food is very good, yet not excellent. The fish can use more flavor to it. I had red snapper, and my wife had sea bass,‏ and my son had white snapper. I am basing my judgment on their fish dishes only. I haven't tried anything else there.
It is pricy though, as well as all the high end restaurants all over UAE.

Dear HFnMore,

Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to write this review,

We are thankful to read that you found Bentley a very good restaurant with exceptional and helpful service, and with very good food.

We are also happy to read that you enjoyed the decoration and the theme of our venue.
During weekends our bar is quite popular for our great cocktails and the amazing sounds that our resident dj is playing from 20:00 until late night. For those who prefer a more relaxed dining scene, our restaurant patio seems to be an ideal place or even better our terrace with amazing views to Al Mariah's island waters, will make their experience memorable.

We look forward to welcoming you soon at Bentley for a new culinary experience

With Kind Regards
The Bentley Bistro and Bar Team
