It's not because of Kennedy, the US president, it's because of the first personal doctor of HH Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan who came with his wife long time ago to work and live in - at that time very undeveloped country - UAE. The restaurant is a must see, once you are in Abu Dhabi, but do not expect a... More

I really wanted to love their food because I really loved the atmosphere of the place. But my dish was not good at all, was not able to finish it.

This place is just great. Food is of the highest quality. The foie gras is to die for. Steaks are delicious and perfectly cooked. Service is excellent. Prices are extremely reasonable. Just a cautionary word to those looking foe a "vibe". This is not for you. This is to enjoy great food in a very comfortable environment and have nice... More

Located in a hotel and conference center run by the UAE military, this old-school restaurant has a strange - though not in a bad way - feel to it. I suppose it mostly caters to conference attendees but from the "Magic of Zamphir" music choices, to the unusual plexiglass napkin holders, I felt a bit like I had been transported... More

We had reserved just a long table for our wedding reception (it was just after the civil wedding and very intimate with only 20 guests)... The staff were amazing in attending to our every need and they even went out of their way to provide flower arrangements, menu prints and welcome drinks! They even arranged the outdoor area as a...

This place is a bit out of town but is well worth the trip. It appears to be very quiet and we were the only ones in there which was really nice. The staff were excellent and the service was superb. The menu was really good and reasonably priced by Abu Dhabi standards (180 for 3 courses), food was excellent... More

Kennedy's is a great place for a romantic evening. As mentioned in previous reviews, it is a very quiet place and it seems like the owners have intentionally kept a low profile. This place is quite unique, and from what i've seen during my 3 years in Abu Dhabi, no other place can match its elegance. Definitely worth a visit,... More

Excellent value and food, should be busier and deserves to be, but hey all the better to keep it to myself! Just one observation: Over a period of 15 months I have visited half a dozen times and to my knowledge the menu hasn't changed.
