We got together with friends and family 16 of us for dinner. The menu looked and sounded good. On recommendation I ordered the tenderloin steak, and others orders various dishes. The kids pasta very garlicky, although another was made which was good. Steak was the worst I have had no seasoning and tasteless, the peppercorn sauce was not peppery at... More

A restaurant at Hilton's beach, nice terrace but with musquitos. Food was good, my pasta was better than at their Italian resto, but bit expensive for what you get.

This wonderful restaurant located on the Abu Dhabi corniche offers a wide range of portuguese as well as indian dishes.Location's magic,with views over the Marina Mall and palms all over the patio.Service was excellent,and a special shoutout goes to the coffee creme brule:a piece of art for dessert!Prices are quite high,but the overall experience is worth it.

Decent enough meal but the tikka was rather dry. Waiter service was attentive almost to the point of being intrusive - I really didn't want a bottle of water so there was no need to ask me three times.
