The food is not exceptional but good. Don't expect something fancy or fine. There is soups, salads, varieties of dishes and desserts. The staff is friendly and nice and very professional. We recommend this place

Gardens located in Crown Plaza Abu dhabi downtown. Lovely ambience, professional staff, and cleanliness is good. Food is tasty but however limited choices for the main dishes. A bit overpriced.

This restaurant always delivers. The food is delicious but what makes this restaurant so special is the staff working there. From the lady greeting you and always remembering your name to the waiters. Keep up the excellent job

Yes,They serve buffet dinner. When you come there just ask the staff or better you call them for reservation. Sorry for this late reply. I just came from vacation. Enjoy your stay there and HBD to your daughter.

The buffet breakfast would cost around 75 Dihrims. However, it is well worth the money, you do not have to book, you can just turn up.

The price range for the buffet per person is usually AED 120-140++. It's better to call the restaurant and confirm as sometimes there are themed nights and so might be more expensive.
