Amazing, everything about our experience was first class. I struggle to call the place "casual" -- it is beach-side, but it's exquisite food at the palace...

Very romantic place with great food. The meat was excellent and cooked perfectly as requested. The view is beautiful and you can enjoy the lounge in front of the sea after the diner

Right on the beach it has a great view of Abu Dhabi. The service was great and so was the food. Definitely worth the high price tag.

Great place with a spectacular view facing the beach and the palace. We loved this experience. However the food is over priced

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

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.

Extremely expensive for the quality of the food, it was just ridiculous. Location is very nice and service is good but the food is average and the prices crazy
