It's a lovely setting on Corniche beach. The food is OK. I can't say it was great. Everybody else seems to like it though, so I could be persuaded to give it another go.

I ordered the steak with fries, seafood salad and red wine. I was surprised that the fries were not greasy at all and it went very well with the steak. It was a sumptuous meal. Service was superb and the view was fabulous. A Filipino staff even offered me a pashmina to keep me warm on that chilly night. I... More

Visited here with friends and the location is superb, right on the Corniche. Food was great and menu had a good range to choose from. Added bonus was the Red Bull Airshow pilots were practicing so we got a preview of the event. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Only downside was it was a little expensive for a lunch... More

Our party of three popped in for a light lunch on the basis of the recommendation of one of our party, who had been before. The location is ideal and the outdoor seating area fitted the aim perfectly. Service was good, but the food left something to be desired. The salad bar is superficially extensive, but of limited creativity and... More

I went to Vasco's with friends who live in Abu Dhabi on the last night of my holiday. I had been told to expect lovely food and I was not disappointed. As it was January, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere. Three of us shared the Daal starter and there was plenty to go round, it... More
