I was here earlier today for a coffee and my friend ordered a chocolate cake. He said it was amazing , I don't know as am not a chocolate fan. The place is quite small but it's fine. Unfortunately the catering smelled yuck , and I asked for a fresh clean one. I believe they should separate desserts ones from... More

Had a meeting at the Fairmont and we went to the chocolate gallery as it was the only place open. Place looks a bit tired, menus all dirty and old. Coffee and pastries where really nice, and nice touch the show kitchen!

A delightful find in the Fairmont Hotel! The Chocolate Gallery has more to offer than you would initially expect, including burgers, sandwiches and other main meals. Obviously all sorts of cake, ice cream and shakes are available and presented beautifully. We were able to use a voucher from our Entertainer Booklet which effectively meant we paid for one item and... More

Thought I would try this as had a brilliant meal at Frankies in the same hotel. What a shocking difference. Food - Dry, tasteless sandwiches, scones rock hard, not enough jam and cream for one scone let alone 2, presentation shocking. Value - In my opinion waste of money. I used a Groupon and even at half price it wasn't... More

Beautiful little booth to go with some fabulous cakes and chocolates. You can also had a light lunch as well, which looked good. The stand out is the brownie hazelnut cake. Delicious.

I got taken here by surprise for my birthday. 2 of my friends were visiting Abu Dhabi and decided to bring me here to get some sweets for my 25 years old. The setting is beautiful, outside you see the mosque, inside you have an elegant atmosphere. The choice of cakes and chocolate based things is big and very satisfactory.... More

If you love Chocolate this is definitely worth a visit for some afternoon tea and lots of chocolate. Wonderful choose of desserts, could have spent all day there. Chocolatier on hand so you can watch them make amazing items

Staying in the Fairmont hotel I visited the cafe on our final night in Abu Dhabi, what a find at the end of the holiday... Wish we had visited sooner. Fresh homemade lemonades and cakes and treats, simply brilliant. Don't make the mistake we made in leaving it too late to visit, this is a must if in the Fairmont... More
