We used this restaurant on the Monday after the F1 circus had finished so the hotel was much quieter and the prices had been reduced to only "pretty expensive". The food was good and service very attentive.

Dinner was disappointing. The food was not to standard. The main course was only average. The panacotta was stwle but they did not charge for it once we told them. Overall mediocre dining experience especially with the steep price paid.We do not mind paying but the experience must be on par.Will not visit this restaurant again.

My wife and I arrived at the Yas Viceroy Hotel at around 9pm for a 7 night stay and decided to eat in the hotel as it was convenient. We sat out on the terrace and enjoyed some very nice food and wine. Outside can be noisy as there were cars screeching around the track and planes flying low overhead,... More

Table for 6 with a range of starters, main courses and drinks ordered. Tasty complimentary nibbles for the table, staff were super helpful advising on menu options and portion sizes. Food was really delicious ! Lovely table outside - fantastic night.

You could get away with only eating a range of starters and missing out on the main coarse completely. Great Babaganoush, and the sausages in a tomato and pepper sauce are amazing.

I had both dinner and lunch at Italian restaurant Amici during my stay at the Viceroy hotel. The two in-house restaurants Amici and Angar were important reasons for choosing this hotel. I had been a few times before in Amici and feel very at home. The food is simply good, the service is attentive and friendly and the wines are... More

We tried this restaurant on one of the evenings whilst staying in YAS island. Since we're used to authentic Italian food at home, we were longing for a decent meal (especially after understanding that the Head Chef of the hotel is Italian). The setting of the restaurant is gorgeous, very contemporary and hip. The menu has a mix of Italian... More

Wow. They are trying so hard in Amici to excel, but just don't get it right. We were a group of 4. The starter; 2 good, 2 just ok. Mains: All very good. Service; try too hard, its all just too scripted and insincere with no engagement just the usual text book questions. Ambiance - poor, Music, dire- rambling trad... More

The staff are friendly and makes sure that everything is good special thanks to Paul he exceeded our expectation. The chefs kept on checking how's the food that made us feel so special and they gave us free dessert. The food was amazing at a reasonable price. Will definitely come back and recommend to my friends.
