1: Stuart McGachen: Game of two halves this venue and both of them were top class. Phenomenon levels of service in the restaurant which delivers great service alongside delightful food. One of our diners was Gluten Free and the levels of attention extended far beyond pointing out G’s on the menu. Each dish was carefully prepared and each and every one had its suitability reiterated by the server upon delivery to the table. Paid the bill and stopped by the bar for “one drink”. Cue four more drinks each and a finish with some comped shots. Bar staff are all characters and enjoy great fun while serving which only enhances the service. DJ delivers a throbbing soundtrack that perfectly enhances the evening, which is much more lively at the bar than restaurant. Any DJ that doesn’t see the job as an ego trip, but does it because they love music is already streets ahead. If you are looking for a great night out that is both unpretentious yet high end, you can do much worse.
2: Steven Jang: We ate here for dinner and need a reservation as it got very busy during dinner time. The service was absolutely excellent from the receptionist to the waiters. The food was delicious. It is pricey but wortg the price as all the ingredients was fresh for chillean seabass, lobster, and ribeye. Very recommended to eat here.

3: Bana ghannam: I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. ZUMA is always the best atmosphere and best food and excellent service. We went there for a light dinner to celebrate a birthday. All the item we had were so delicious especially the shrimp Tempura and the teriyaki salmon. The banana caramel cake was amazing. Highly recommended.

1: Stu Holden: I enjoyed both breakfast and a Saturday Brunch at Crust, the food is glorious here. I would definitely recommend the eggs benedict on the breakfast menu. The Brunch is out of this world, so much choice, chef’s come around the tables offering special dishes prepared in front of you. Drink selection very good, there is a champagne package but I’m more of a beer, whisky and cocktails sort. Thank you Crust for a truly enjoyable experience. Service Dine in Meal type Brunch
2: Seann: This is Four Season…… what else can I say. Top notch service. The staff are finely tuned and aware of the customers and will approach the customers discreetly for more drinks and food, without you having to ask, most of the time. Of course having a 3/4 restaurant occupancy helps. LOVE the almond croisant. Food: 5 Service: 5 Atmosphere: 5
3: Majdi Alnajjar: One of the best brunches in Abu Dhabi. Food was great. Service was excellent. Presentation of food was amazing. Variety of food was very good. Highly recommended

1: Jose Wesley: Less options for Dinner Buffet.. Taste is fine .. Drinks also less options ( Based on your budget)… Nice Experience with Group Service Dine in Meal type Dinner Price per person AED 150–200 Parking 3 Levels of parking available
2: Alex Lim: Booked in advance for a Friday brunch and it was full house. Lots of food on buffet and on the spot cooking station – my favourites were the pasta, foie gras buratta and South African ribeye. They were all heavenly and I had second/third helpings as there were in smaller portion. Service especially from Mariel were superb and accommodating. This is my favourite hangout now – will be back for sure!
3: Shawn O’Neill: Was here for a staff event. Service and ambience were great. It was an evening brunch so I expected more when it came to the food service. Our final course came out and it was lacking in substance. Left hungry. Food: 3 Service: 4 Atmosphere: 5

2: Josh Ritchie: There’s brunch….and then there’s Brunch at the Palace. Be warned to those brave souls who seek glorious, endless tables of desiccant cheeses, succulent meats and mouth watering deserts, and believe that they can survive the remainder of the day without a nap. Thou shall not pass. Wade through plates and plates of your most inner desires. Lobsters. Prime rib. Macaroons. A tablespoon of fresh caviar personally delivered to your table with a smile. This place is life changing. I may never eat blueberries with gold again. Thank you Palace….thank you…we shall meet again.
3: Dave Fritchey: Excellent food and relaxing atmosphere. Great place to meet friends and spend the day socializing.

The attention to detail is impressive, even better than the Ritz Carlton in every aspect. The service staff know all the components of the buffet items, which impressed us very much.

2: Anood AlZaabi: We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday and Tbh the atmosphere was very nice the restaurant was very clean but unfortunately the food wasn’t so great. The fried calamari was very oily I couldn’t have another piece. The chicken and pesto sandwich was also very average and there was a strong after taste that I didn’t enjoy the fries were really good though. The pizza was also below average the flavors didnt add up. And finally the aisan dish rice with kimchi was toooo good i really enjoyed it I would have enjoyed if there was more kimchi because it was very flavorful and was what saved this rating. The staff weren’t the best in terms of speed i dont think i would repeat this experience. Service Dine in Meal type Lunch Price per person AED 150–200
3: St B: Great restaurant within the Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers. We had lunch here. The interior is very well designed and welcoming. Bright colors, nice view across the pool and beach area of the hotel and very friendly staff. The food was very delicious and the portions, in patricular the starters, much bigger than we anticipated, so make sure you are hungry when you arrive. 😉 Thank you for having us and we will definitely come back again during our next visit at Abu Dhabi.

1: Sugandhi Shenoy: The food counters were never ending and how I wish we had a bigger tummy and a bigger appetite!😌 What I loved the most was the quality of the food served! Though it was a huge brunch, there was no compromise on the quality at all! The scallops counter was my favorite followed by the pizza counter and the grill counter! Desserts were killers! Really appreciate the finesse of the desserts! We were spoilt for choice and were in real fix on what to choose? All together a marvelous experience and we are surely going back there. What I would like to specifically mention is, the level of safety hygiene and covid protocols they follow! The tables are so well sanitized and socially distanced. Even the food counters are all well attended by the staff!! Service Dine in Meal type Brunch
2: Alyssa PC: Been planning for an International Buffet for my birthday celebration with some friends and I didn’t expect that we will have a great experience here. Foods are great and delicious.

Keep up the good service and we will surely come back for the themed nights next time. 😊💯 Meal type Dinner Price per person AED 100–150
3: Angel Ilagan: We had a wonderful dining experience at the CuiScene. Ambience was perfect for the family experience! Tobin was ready and prompt to assist us and make sure that our table is kept clear and our drinks overflow. Tobin is very accommodating and very professional. Vicky went to our table and made sure that we were having a great dining experience. She even gave a complimentary cake for our birthday girl. All smiles and checking on us. Ravi also was ready to assist and very helpful, too. Ready to help with warmth and smile. Will come back for sure. We love the kindness of the staff here!

This boat is reserved for the island and you can get their easily using the Google map location. Boat trip usually take around 15 minutes. Trips are scheduled so please check the boat schedule before coming… I would recommend to take day pass and come to the island during the day to have a tour, enjoy the beach and have some activities…..

2: Mariam: Not bad design and decorations.. I went on Friday and almost no people there.. too quiet and crowded only one table was busy .. the menu had variety of dishes and meals .. i took sushi which was so yummy and delicious .. also the green pasta was perfect and i like the flavor.. i hope to come back to try other dishes.. good luck

1: Louis Michael C.: Food was excellent. Service was lukewarm though; took a while to be able to order, and the bread came after the food is serve. How wonderful is that for service 😆 and yes, did I fail to mention this that the daily promotion is just fornshow; we tried to order that at 7pm dinner time and was told that the daily promotion – that day was prime ribeye was fully sold. So maybe this will allow them to move their more expensive alternatives? I dunno, but I really think their service can be much improved. Service Dine in Meal type Dinner Price per person AED 450–500
2: SHAUN: Best food ive ever had at a brunch! Was a great relaxed atmosphere. Subtle music. On the classy side. Great to take family, friends or for couples.
