My wife & I decided to have breakfast in Hawksbill Restaurant located in Saadyat Golf Club this morning (Saturday). It was an awful experience with bad service, table was not clean, wrong order, waiter does not speak english very well. For example, my wife requested a dish called Eggs Your way (twice they placed the order to get it right),... More

Popped into the Saadiyat Beach Golf Club for a bite of lunch, was welcomed by one of the golf pros who showed us into the restaurant and enjoyed a great meal and great service. A typical golf club bistro meal but the food is prepared with a lot of love. We had the lentil soup, calamari and a club sandwich... More

I really don't understand why this restaurant is low on the rankings. This would be our local; the food is always delicious and reasonably priced, the service very good. When the weather is cooler, it is nice to sit out and have a drink. I enjoy eating here as I know that the food I order is going to be... More

Me & my husband had a dinner here after a golf lesson. We ordered something which has a rice & few drinks. That was very good! But for that meal, it shouldn't be that pricey. Hope they can put the price down a bit as playing golf is not a cheap game already. Having to eat just after you play... More

We attended the dinner at Saadiyat Golf Club when each of the five courses was supplemented with an appropriate wine. The food, wine, service and company were excellent and very good value for money.

A gathering for Borouge Golf players at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club. I spent some hours in the Restauarant waiting for the others, had lunch and, after the game all of us had some snacks before come back home. The food was great and the staff was very friendly and they gave me a very kind and good support!

We attended a company dinner at Hawksbill which may have challenged the chef somewhat, having to cater for 30 people at once. The results however, were less than impressive. I was disappointed by the blandness of the food as well as the fact that, with lukewarm plates, many of us had to start before everyone had their meal and some... More

We visited with children on a busy Friday lunchtime. The service was slow and they even forgot to place our order for additional drinks (which we decided to just forget about). While dining with children, the most important thing is efficient service. We ordered a sandwich and it was large enough to feed two people. The children's meals were not... More
