Breakfast Buffet was ridiculously expensive and overpriced. A la cart Breakfast menu was just as expensive. For that price, there should have been way more variety and not just a wide range and plethora of pastries.

I took a friend and her mother to the lounge at Capital Gate for Afternoon Tea. We were served by Margaret who was absolutely amazing. Polite, efficient, calm and friendly; she carefully explained what drinks were available and how long the tea was likely to be. My friend and her mother enjoyed a glass of sparkling wine while we waited... More

Beautifully modern stylish restaurant with amazing views and a very tasty menu. Good sized tapas menu with good high quality meals. Great service from the staff. One thing missing tho but I can't put my finger on it.but I highly recommend this restaurant and if you can sit outside on the patio then do it.

One of the best restaurant in UAE. The quality is very high and the service is perfect. Maybe not a fast service but it worth the waiting. Every course is made at the moment with precision and care in the big open kitchen. There is not smell of food in the restaurant due to the perfect air system, a thing... More

My wife and I went for a dinner. The menu seems to have variety of the options. We tried duck leg and salmon which are very nice. We also like the passion fruit drink. The price is a bit high like 60+AED including tax and services. Worth to try!

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
