Absolutely phenomenal!!! One of the greatest experience for my husband and I. If I didn’t live so far away, I would most definitely go again. I have already recommend this restaurant to my colleague who is visiting Abu Dhabi in April

Quantity does not mean quality.
Lamb chops came by two, five pieces in total, and were not deliciously grilled on a charcoal be as could be expected; the rib eye was grilled medium+ and not medium rare as requested.
When you price lamb chops at 340 AED (80 EUR, or 90 USD!) and the rib eye at 330 AED, you are expected to deliver the best.
Emirates Palace delivered an under average experience at the price of a Michelin starred restaurant.
There are much better alternatives in the UAE for a BBQ on the beach.

Unfortunately we had to suffer from the Russian Music festival that took place on the beach of the hotel the same night. We could barely speak to each other as the Music was very very loud.
Difficult to really appreciate the diner....we found that the restaurant direction acted very poorly as they did not warned us about it and did not offer a drink or anything to compensate for this.
For a $$ restaurant you can imagine our disappointment !!

15 mins after we arrived, a very loud Indian party started and we could barely hear each others voices. It was extremely uncomfortable. We thought we should've been warned of this close by party beforehand.

The restaurant menu is outrageously overpriced; 180 Dirham for a burger, +400 for fish and +600 for steak. The food was good though.

Maybe if in a different and more quiet settings this place would have been worth the money.

This was a treat for my partner after looking at all the different high end meat restaurants while on holiday. It was a great surprise in terms of the grandeur on arrival as I hadn’t told him where we were going and the setting is beautiful. It was pretty windy where we sat which was annoying at times but overall fine. Food was very good, meat very tender and tasted lovely. A very expensive meal nonetheless. You obviously pay for the setting as well as the food. We were also served a platter for ‘2’ which could have fed a family of 4 and luckily were able to give our left overs to friends who live here and hadn’t tried the food. Overall good. With a price tag.

The view was extra ordinary breathtaking and the sound of the waves is just indescribable! It would have been 100% perfect experience if they organized the table with more decoration so it feels special. the table was just like the other tables although I requested to have something special for our Anniversary . Also the grilled chicken had a very bad taste. However, beef was nice and I loved he complimentary cake although the writing should have been in a different color so it shows. Over all, a very nice place to spend a romantic evening!

I was a bit surprised that not only us in the tent. There was 3 more tables. Online it was showing that the tent has single table. I would recommend the tents to be single for romantic occasions.

We came here primarily for the view and seating area. First of all we had to ask five different people to find the restaurant as there is no signage anywhere directing the guests. We were seated immediately once we got there. We asked the person who seated us to get the heater running as it was chilly. It took us three reminders before they got the heater turned on - which btw was not working properly. We had to get blankets!

Next came the food. We ordered the signature grill, warm appetizer, and veal stew. The grill was like warm at best and tasted okay. Warm appetizer was great. The stew...... it was barely edible! The most disgusting veal I ever ate! Presentation of the food, however, was great

The bathrooms are very far away and quite a hike.

Overall it’s a great place for a romantic dinner. Beautiful view and ambience. Food ... stick to the grills/bbq.

Hi,

I really liked the menu and ordered angus. I wanted it well done. Unfortunately, it arrived completely dry and did not have any taste. Perhaps you should hire an Argentine to prepare the meat, they are a way better than your cook
