Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Etihad Modern Art Gallery cafe captivates with its soulful ambiance, offering an artsy haven for dining and coffee. With both smoking and non-smoking options, plus a creative corner for kids to paint, it provides a relaxing and fulfilling experience. If you are around it is worth visiting. Service is fast and very helpful.

This is a small art gallery. I went on its website where it only indicated the last exhibition for November, nothing for December. So, I went to see what they have on display. On the ground floor are a few paintings and on the first floor one room with paintings and another with sculptures. I spent about half an hour there. If you enjoy modern art, then you must visit this gallery. I had it all to myself.
Note that an entrance fee is not charged.
Big Bus Tours does stop and drop here. I saw one come by; it was disappointing that no one got off.

This is the only place in Abu Dhabi inspires me to be creative.
They have been exhibiting all different kinds of art, and artists from many countries.One thing I feel the art gallery need is a bigger space.
They also have a cafe you can enjoy after the visit.

Beautiful and very interesting! It is located in a very quiet/residential area of Abu Dhabi, called Al Bateen. There are creative and well made paintings of a variety of themes and if the UAE Sheikhs and beloved falcons. There are also furniture made of recycled materials with many different types of fabrics and colours. It is worth a visit.

I went to see the Ramadan Art Souq this year and it is HORRIBLE. This gallery is going "downhill" and it is sad as we have very few art venues in Abu Dhabi. Last year the souq was amazing with great art and very talented people. This year except for a few pieces the art was mediocre and you can easily see that the exhibition was put together last minute and in a rush. Nothing flows well, in particular the first floor did not make any sense, like oranges and apples in one basket. Whoever put this show together is an amateur and does not have any clue about art. Don't waste time, you are better off looking at art in the Internet.

I took my whole family to visit this gallery during their Art Souk, we were very impressed by how pretty this place is, amazing artists, my kids were so in love with the healing art of artist Wilma Burton, her paintings are so inspiring, colorful and very unique, her artwork made us all happy, you will love her work, plus there is a nice cafe made of recycle materials, very clever. We enjoyed this activity and I recommend it in particular families. I
