Highly recommend this café restaurant in Radisson Hotel Blu Al Ain. I booked a snug table for our wedding anniversary and Rabie (manager) made sure it was outstanding amazing beautiful and romantic. He dressed the oval seats in red balloons, red table cloths and red...lamps. The setting was perfect. The chef (Mohammed) came to introduce himself and offered to make whatever we desired, never has this been offered anywhere else, we were made to feel so special. He cooked fresh zatar garlic bread, humus rice wrapped in vine leaves, other dips then he baked Lahmacun with lamb & Spices, we've never tasted anything like it stunning. Then he cooked mixed grill on a bbq brought to our table, steak, chicken, lamb chops & koftas, seriously amazing tasting food!!! They then brought out a cake with Happy Wedding Anniversary on it. We were so surprised and happy. This place deserves an award for outstanding service, food and kindness. Relaxed atmosphere with beautiful surroundings. We'll done to the team here, we will be back soonMore

1. The food was really good. (Though we didn’t order much as we were not hungry). The amount was plenty so as the presentation. There were a lot of choices as well. 2. Good for family and kids as well as couples. 3. The giant...TV screen telecasts Mostly matches/ news/ Music (in Arabic) 4. It is very crowded and Smokey over the weekend but was pleasant during the week days 5. You may find healthy cats sitting under the table but open air restaurant is the positive point. 6. The restaurant accept Fazaa.More

We had been to this place many times as it has the nicest Beer garden near our home, but this time the dishes were jus amazing. The new chef suggested a menu and we thought it was just perfect! We started with very nice bites...and the baba ghanoush , the moutabel and the wine leaves were by far the best we have ever tried, so delicate! The bread was to die for! The cheese Manakeesh and the Lamacun were absolutely delicious, but I had to admit that the best came at the end, simply the best Kunafa ever! All served with a smile and great attentiveness. The only but was the amount of food served ….. we could not finish it all, but the good news is that we took what we could not eat and had it for lunch today, so we had two perfect meals!! Thanks Mohammed!More

Came in for a Business trip with not much expectations. Was blown away by the great staff. My two guys at the outside hooka bar were top notch. Ask for Aziz, and Darif, and you are guaranteed a great time.
