Located on a beach with a romantic setting outside the emirates palace the table has to be reserved 24hrs before hand. We were given a private area for me Mrs and daughter. The service was amazing menu had a wide variety of items. The ambience is amazing I would strong suggest being there during the golden hour around 5pm onwards I was there in pitch black and hence struggled to get some decent pics. Anyways I ordered slow roast beef whilst Mrs ordered 2 sides and lamb shank with drinks all coming up to approx £100 which isn't bad at all - the service was amazing having known I was there to celebrate 2 birthdays there were special arrangements and a complementary cake the gentlemen on shift were absolutely professional and friendly service with great atmosphere I would recommend this place

OMG! That's all you would say about this experience... it's superb place. We were staying in a different hotel nearby, but for my birthday decided to treat ourselves to a romantic dinner in BBQ Restaurant with amazing setting in the beach cabanas... from the arrival to the reception area to an offer to use hotel transfer to go home... heaven.
Food was delicious- presentation amazing, so much choice and the service we received from Ravi was unique. He was very knowledgable and had great suggestions on the menu- True Professional.
The whole Emirates Palace was like a little paradise...luxury through out. I'm already planning to bring my mum for her birthday in few months to stay at this hotel.

At Abu Dhabi for an exhibition and decided to enjoy a nice dinner here after a full day on my now very sore legs. Before arrival, I knew the Palace is huge and grand but words or pictures cannot describe the place to justice. Space is the ultimate luxury, every place inside and outside this palace is just huge!

Restaurant is located by the beach, you'd need to walk toward the e d of the hotel, and exit through the door to reach the restaurant, but it's well worth the walk!

Reception was friendly and courteous, making us feel warmly welcomed. Seating is in gazeboed tent-like construction. It was a nice breezy evening, and it just felt amazing havjng dinner that close to the beach. The sound of the waves was very soothing and mesmerizing.

The pre-meal bread was served warm, crusty outside and tender inside. It had a cheese flavour to it, and was served with four condiments. I had scallop for appetizer, it was cooked to perfection and with condiments that spiked the taste buds. My husband had the fried octopus, we saw a nice but if fusion in this dish where the plate was served with Thai style spring rolls with octopus bits inside, also to perfection; the octopus was tender and fresh, not over cooked. My main course was the signature BBQ skewer; there were four skewers of meat with truffled potatoes on the side; skewers included one chicken, one beef, two sausages of some sort. On the side also came some BBQ small tasty tomatoes, and 4pcs of barbecued quesadillas which are to be eaten with four types of condiments, many of which were made with creamed chick peas. Very nice, but I was too full; it was too much for me. My husband had the sea bass; it was tender and flavorful, served with potatoes carrots etc. It was good but not extraordinary.Although I didn't finish the good due to its size, overall a wonderful experience, great food where the chef put a lot of effort into, a memory of a lifetime.

This was an spectacular experience! I had dinner with the Hotel view all lit up behind me and the sea breeze against my skin with a beautiful night view of boat and city lights. The restaurant itself has a sense of romance and relaxation feel too it. I had the privilege of meeting the chef himself and i must say he has a true calling and passion for the food he prepares. My main course was beef, and its been a long time since i’ve eat beef so soft, tender and flavorsome the mash potato as one of the sides was of the creamiest i have ever tasted, absolutely delicious. Great Portion Sizes, more than enough.
The creativity in the presentation of the food is impeccably impressive. I have a honey salad that was not only was fresh and tasty, but was presented with absolutely style. Friend Staff, pays attention to detail and anticipated my needs, great DJ, and selection music. thank you for a memorable experience.
