Fairly average restaurant, too pricey for weeknight meal. Service acceptable, wine list acceptable, menu selections lacking even though it's Ramadan. This would have been the time to capture new patrons. Previous restaurant was really nice, with all the build up of a new chef I was looking to be wowed. I wasn't. As I started out, fairly average.

We had a mid week reservation for four. I havent been to P&C for a long time so was looking forward to the tapas menu, and to see the new venue. Hmmm. Didnt really notice any changes and was surprised how empty it was. We were the first guests and this was at 7.30pm. We started our night with drinks... More

I visited here in April just after the relaunch, I had a great evening sampling many of the new dishes on the menu while enjoying the magnificent view of The Grand Mosque. I particularity enjoyed their salmon cerviche and a fantastic steak tartar. Also, they have a great cocktail menu and some superb gins to enjoy with your meal also.... More

Great place for brunch, or even a few drinks as the sun goes down. Great music, amazing views of the Grand Mosque and the waterways. One of the best spots in Abu Dhabi for a sundowner

Loving all things Spanish I was very excited to see that a new tapas restaurant (with a big name attached) had opened in Abu Dhabi. There was five of us and we had a good table outside. The food was pretty moderate, nothing blew your socks off. We did like the patatas bravas but the lobster paella dish tasted very... More

The restuarant is part of the Shangri - La Hotel, wife and i had a selection of tapa's, some a variation on the standard theme, all fantastic both in taste and presentation. Excellent service, wonderful decour and tables well spaced for that private dinning experience. To finish off a deconstructed cheese cake- glorious. As in most restuarants in Abu Dhabi... More

Stayed at the Shangri-La on 5/25/15 and had dinner at Pearls & Caviar that evening. We ordered two tapas: oxtail ravioli and grilled octopus (daily special). Both were exceptional. For the entree we had the daily special, which was paella with lobster. Portion was perfect for two. While very good and some of the tastiest lobster we've had, it was... More

I have never written a review on a restaurant before but after a visit to the truly wonderful Pearls and Caviar at the Shanri-La Hotel in Abu Dhabi I felt compelled to do so. From the minute of arriving, the welcome was great and the service throughout our meal was faultless. The food was excellent even to the point my... More
