Every now and then, a restaurant comes along that knocks your socks off and Brasserie Angélique has done a god job of this. Situated at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, the restaurant isn’t in the main part of the hotel but at the back, where the newly opened Avenue is located. Walking through the black gilded doors you almost feel like you’re in Paris itself.

The décor here is striking and the fun thing about it is that it is split into different sections. There’s a main area with black and white tiles delicately laid on the floor alongside beautifully dressed Parisian, bistro-style tables. The food is rich and oh-so-French. You’ll be able to choose from traditional favourites like French onion soup or options that have more of a modern twist. The service at this establishment is confident and attentive. Staff are knowledgeable and more than happy to help you choose from the menu. Abu Dhabi is lucky to have this new restaurant and it’s sure to become a favourite.

I dined here on Monday January 21st with my daughter and a friend after having read the review. Unfortunately since September something must have happened as the food was definitely not up to five star standards.
First of all the onion soup was served in a very small plain bowl - similar to those from Ikea. Not in the bread cob. The soup was very sweet as the onions were very caramelised.

Main course of Confil of Duck was very dry and seemed to have been deep fried. Puys lentils very nice. The dish actually looked very unappetising - very brown. Vegetables had to be requested separately.

Main course of Poulet de Bresse: very mediocre.

I chose Gnocchi as my main course and was surprised to be served a tiny portion which was too small for a started let alone a main course. I was shocked to find the Gnocchi had been sauteed and were very greasy. Where was the sauce verte? Just a trickle on the plate. As for the truffle - found about 3 shavings of it.

However the final insult was the "original Tarte de Citron" Admittedly delicious - but it was a lemon cheesecake complete with biscuit base.

I had really been looking forward to tasting some delicious French food and instead was served food which was definitely not up to standard.
