Our party of three popped in for a light lunch on the basis of the recommendation of one of our party, who had been before. The location is ideal and the outdoor seating area fitted the aim perfectly. Service was good, but the food left something to be desired. The salad bar is superficially extensive, but of limited creativity and... More

I went to Vasco's with friends who live in Abu Dhabi on the last night of my holiday. I had been told to expect lovely food and I was not disappointed. As it was January, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere. Three of us shared the Daal starter and there was plenty to go round, it... More

The best part of Vasco's is the beach side location and the views of the bay and causeway out to Al Marina. Even better if you are seated on the veranda, which due to weather (dust and sand) - we were not. Inside ambiance is upscale polished woods and brass, a distinctly seaside feel. However, lesson learned - ask where... More

I have reviewed this restaurant several times but keep hoping for improvements as we love the location of the place. Sitting outside is excellent due to its location and the service is top class. However it is still over priced with small portions and not good value for money. The menu has changed which has done nothing to enhance its... More

We hadn't eaten there for quite a while, but it did seem to have gone down in quality. The fondly remembered Daal wasn't as good as it had been in the past (different chef maybe). The pizza was not good at all - quality of crust and general taste - although they did replace it with another, which was slightly... More

Very conveniently located by the beach, you can visit during day time or have a dinner in the evening. We stayed at Hotel Hilton and they recommended us this restaurant on the first evening. We were very satisfied with the food and service. Because a bit chilly weather we decided to eat inside but there is also a nice terrace... More

Service was good, I felt the menu was limited and food was of average quality. I had the risotto, which I felt was too stodgy. The rest of the meals were adequate

I ate here on my last night and wasn't disappointed. In fact I was sorry I waited until the last night. It's a beautiful open air restaurant overlooking the water.

Situated in the Beach Club area you can sit inside or out. The staff were very friendly and a good choice of food. Alcholic drinks are expensive but the food price was OK and the portions good.
