It all started in 1931 when a long-sought dream became reality and Giuseppe Cipriani Sr. opened the doors of Harry’s Bar. In a discreet stone building perched along a canal just off Piazza San Marco in Venice, he created a timeless and impeccably appointed establishment. His concept was to serve others as you would want to be served yourself. His vision of simple luxury came to touch the souls of people all over the world.

Cipriani Yas Island is a stylish, elegant restaurant with a beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the beautiful Yas Marina and Yas Island Race Track. The menu features signature dishes from Harry"s Bar in Venice and classic Italian favorites. Whether you are a regular of other Cipriani locations around the world or a first time customer you will be welcome with warmth and care.

Alternatively, you can choose from a selection of Japanese dishes, tempura and the freshest sushi from Yotto Japanese, located in the Bellini Lounge.

Service was very good. Very attentive and the private room was perfect for our race team celebration. Food was also very authentic and good although I find the dishes a little too salty for my taste. The yellowfin tuna carpaccio was very salty and the veal was good but with the sauce, too salty. Wine selection is the best I have seen in UAE in our 2 weeks there. Kinda pricey tough but you get what you pay for.

Excellent service and good varied menu options - sushi, lamb and steak. All was attractively plated and reasonably priced. Service was excellent and I loved the ambience. The outdoor patio seating had the best seats in the house with a great view of the Formula 1 track.

Nice place with good ambiance. The tables by the windows have a beautiful view of the Marina, but can be hot during daytime. The pasta is awesome, and desserts are incredible. Thanks to the staff, which made our day unforgettable.

Food was really delicious. We ate the following:

Fried calamari (starter) - very tasty
Bresaola (starter) - with large Parmesan shavings.. was really tasty. Large portion!
Beetroot, asparagus and goats cheese salad (starter) - it was ok. I wouldn’t order it again.

Black cod (main) - a little bit salty for my liking but it was very buttery and also a generous portion! Enjoyed
Chicken (main) - also tasty.

The bellinis were divine.

Overall, the food was really good and the service was 10/10.

Actually the worst dinner experience in Abudhabi in one year living here. Uncomfortable, noisy, food very average and expensive. Service was not to the expected level either.

Cipriani restaurants are always very enjoyable: good food, good wine list, good service and ...charm! The esplanade is my preferred place in Yas Island for a dinner during the "cold" months of UAE. Cipriani at Yas Island resumes all these characteristics, plus a great view to Yas Circuit.
I recommend this Cipriani to everybody!... Enjoy!

I invited my friend for dinner for her birthday. The food was nice. Reception staff were welcoming and friendly. The waiters need to be more attentive though. Food was good.

The food here was ridiculously expensive and very very average, if not poor. Two mediocre main courses, a salad starter and a pudding with a couple of soft drinks came to £161.00. Even for Abu Dhabi this was a rip off for a level of food which was that good.

Couldn't recommend this place.
