Great place on a beach. Fantastic ambience. Perfect service with a smile. Delicious food. On my opinion overpriced, but you're in Emirates Palace, so you have to be prepared that some services might cost more than in any other place. Anyway if you're looking for romantic dinner with excellent service and food, you have to visit this restaurant.

Overall I still rated the resturant five start, and highly recommend the... More

We ate here on Christmas Eve - the special gala tasting menu. It was "very nice" without blowing us away. Although we stayed at the Emirates Palace for six nights we couldn't quite be bothered to come again.

A lot has been said about the delicious and mouth-watering food served at this beautifully designed place--and I totally agree with all the praise and enthusiasm expressed in most of the comments on tripadvisor--so I would like to focus on and emphasize the professionalism, politeness, and kind-heartedness of the restaurant's staff. Hostess Sihame welcomes you with a warm, inviting smile... More

We were incredibly impressed with the guest chef menu. A lot of work went into it by not only the chefs staff but also Sayad's own staff. We ate in here several other times and the food and service was very good too.
