Atmosphere wise, I prefer the new branch that opened in the Bateen area. Bu Tafish has casual settings for 5 star seafood. Always fresh and delicious. They also deliver which is great when hosting a large group of pescatarian. Highly recommended!

First visited this establishment in 1996 when it was on a listing barge with fish cages tied along side. Locals called it Abu Two Fish. Fantastic grilled hamour, a local grouper. Combine with some grilled prawns and a salad and it's a wonderful meal. Rediscovered the Restaraunt on this visit and enjoyed lunch there twice. Great value.

This is by far the best seafood restaurant in the city !! I've been going to this restaurant for lunch/dinner with family for over 25 years now !! it used to be on a docked ship at first and then its location was moved. It's a family owned business and everything from their appetizers to their mains feels like home... More

A group of 3 of us dined at Bu Tafish restaurant at Marasy, Marina Al Bateen in Abu Dhabi on Sunday 9 August. Nice clean restaurant, staff polite and helpful. Shame about the food which was absolutely disgusting. We ordered a salad and had to ask where it was because we didn't see it. When we asked the waiter, he... More

I certainly don't like if the main course is is served when you are still into the starter. Dishes were nicely decorated but food was a bit overcooked and tasteless. No... More

On our last night in Abu Dhabi an Emirati friend of ours invited us for Dinner as his guest. Wow! From the moment the Manager greeted us to the moment he said farewell, this was one of those experiences you dream about-and I like my food. The restaurant has been running since 1968, but as you walk up the stairs... More
