Le Cafe is inside Emirates Palace - which is a must see if you are traveling to Abu Dhabi. It's architectural features are quite incredible. You must have your shoulders covered to enter. We wanted to go to Le Cafe for afternoon tea. My friend, an expat living in Abu Dhabi, rang ahead and booked but they somehow didn't have... More

I tried the popular camel burger with falafel chips and gold on top... it was ok, overpriced.. I guess you pay that amount of money because you are having lunch at LE Café in Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi... it was a nice experience.

Always if we are staying at the Emirates Palace we like to sit there, to relax, listening to local musicians, and to meet an to talk to others.

The service was all right but the high tea at Le Cafe was of very low quality at an extreme price. One would expect a 5-star institution to serve fresh sandwiches at least. - The sandwiches were dried out and stale. Clearly prepared way too long in advance. - There were enough scones and sweets for two to share but... More

Inside the Emirates Palace is this gem of a location for afternoon tea or post-meal drinks. The service is excellent (must mention Stefan) and the snacks/cakes/drinks will wow you. I recommend their special coffee topped with shavings of gold; yes, GOLD! All served with a dark chocolate and a fresh date in fantastic surroundings. Wonderful.

As a non resident in the hotel we were told this was the only eatery we could go to. The coffee shop at the back of the property on the ground floor is open and is a nice carpeted area. There is a lady pianist playing softly in the background. The seating is low comfy sofas and armchairs. The staff... More

This is probably the least expensive place to go if you are looking for a reservation at Emirates Palace but it's questionable if it's worth it. The food and other offerings are merely average and the prices are pretty steep. Additionally there is no view on this area.

As a coffee lover, I was intrigued when I heard about the gold dust cappuccino. The cappuccino is the signature coffee served at the Emirates Palace. The cappuccino is sprinkled with 24 carat gold flakes and is served with a special date and dark chocolate. The experience was definitely unique, the coffee was great and the ambience was amazing.
