We were with a very large group so that could explain that the food was a bit cold on the plate, so my experience was not great. The food was good quality, but it was tasting quite bland, more spices would be highly recommendable. I think for children this is excellent, but experienced travelers will not be impressed here. E.g.... More

My wife and I visited on recommendation and found it to be a very pleasant restaurant. I thought the prices were a little on the high side until, that is, the food started to arrive. I opted for the hot mezzo, my wife declining a starter. Our waiter read the signs and bought an extra knife and fork " just... More

It was my first time visiting Abu Dhabi, and we were participating in a function during lunch time...the restaurant was light and airy with a lot of open space... the waitstaff very attentive and polite. But the food...well, the food was what captivated me, and for the rest of my trip (even to Dubai), nothing could surpass the lunch that... More

fresh juices and heathy drinks. Small menu on a clearly arranged menu. Outside (like a garden, pleasant quiet) or inside (high ceilings very light, big window). Perfect for breakfast (opens at 8am) or a easy going lunch. Nice and fresh. Close to the Museum but independent. Friendly.

I had a group of ladies for the Art club social meeting at the Fanr restaurant outside patio. It was a perfect location to hold a social meeting. And the restaurant had a delightful ambiance. The lunch was very well presented and the food was prepared precisely to the taste. I ordered a salmon lunch and the skin was crispy... More

My friend and I went to Fanr restaurant after visiting exhibition at Manarat Al Saadiyat for lunch. We ordered shrimp linguini & grilled salmon for main meal and it's highly recommended! The service from the staff (I think her name is Roxan) was excellent and manager visited our table to ask how we were enjoying the meal. Later, we had... More

We eat at Fanr often because it's close to our apartment. The food is good, especially the mushroom soup, fish dishes, pizzas, and kids' menu items. We recently had our daughter's birthday party in their garden and it was perfect. I highly recommend Fanr, especially for families as the adults can enjoy the food (and happy hour drinks!) while the... More
