Stayed in Abu Dhabi for a week and ended up spending most of lunches and dinners here! Fab staff, you are well looked after and great food, from all over the world!
It’s a must to come and eat here if in Abu Dhabi!

The setting ,location and staff were excellent. I choose the calamari starter, which was ok but not special and a portugese fish stew which was disappointing, mainly vegetables in a tomato sauce, no real flavour andca bit salty. My husband enjoyed his ceaser salad and grupper tikka.The restaurant offers a wide variety of cuisine, so i would try again , if in abu dhabi, but i thought it was expensive for what we got. That said as most restaurants appear to be affiliated with hotels itbis probably to be expected.

The restaurant is really well located on the Corniche with a beautiful view. I sat outside and it was very pleasant indeed. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The salad bar provides a great variety of items reflecting many food themes but all items were high quality. I had a pizza for dinner and it was very good but two could share a pizza. The menu provided a great selection of local, Portuguese and Indian recipes. Highly recommended.

Jenelyn and Cherry, as well as the rest of the staff, do an excellent job at making you feel welcome and comfortable. The food is of high quality, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is very peaceful, offering an environment surrounded by flowers, soft music, beach and palms. I return on a regular basis and so should you. A must visit!!
