An eye-catching restaurant located in an even more impressive building, Kennedy will grab you as you walk through the door. A hanging model of one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s flying contraptions is the centrepiece here, but make sure you scan the room for other quirky features that are less obvious at first glance. The food is also quirky, which, depending on what you order, can be good or bad. Dishes on the European menu, particularly the French side, tend to have a flair of the unusual to them, either in presentation or flavour pairings. This adds a degree of randomness to your meal. And when it works, the food here is excellent. But when an idea doesn’t quite come off, you’ll wish you had ordered something else.

Great restaurant! Had the 3 course meal for 160 aed on a Monday night. Fantastic deal. The lobster ravioli with the apple gazpacho was not the best choice for starter but the tenderloin and the chocolate creme brulee with mango sorbet were impressive.

A fantastic restaurant! So glad we found it. The food is sublime and the service excellent. Unsurpased value for money for this sort of quality. Perhaps one of the best restaurants in Abu Dhabi.
