Located in the elegant Rosewood Abu Dhabi, this all-day dining restaurant serves expansive buffets of excellent food. The setting is also magnificent, with sweeping views of the Arabian Sea and Al Zahiyah setting the perfect backdrop. Even if you head here at lunchtime, you can be sure of a feast. Expect delicious tapas, salads and soups, plus an extensive dessert buffet. You can also order main courses à la carte, which vary depending on the time and day. Service is delightful, too.

I had lunch with two of my colleagues couple days ago , the restaurant is beautiful with a big crystal showpiece hanging from the ceiling , stunning. The view is also amazing. Getting to the experience, they have a unique concept where you have all the appetizers on a buffet and then you get to choose "if you want " a main course from their menu.The antipasti look soooooo good and taste the same. The Chef served us a mini vittelo tonnato which he made right in front of us and it really taste phenomenon. I had the ricotta gnudi with mushrooms which was amazingly soft and light , and both my friends had the sea bass which I tasted as well, I have to say that they know how to cook fish in this kitchen.Crispy skin from the grill and juicy flesh inside. We end up having the desserts though we were full, they look very classic and the taste is ok , I bet they can do better tiramisu and panacotta.
The service overall was good,friendly, casual ,they handle the table efficiently even if you think they restaurant was packed on a Monday.
Had long time to have a lunch in Abu Dhabi which brought me back memories from Italy. The manager told me that they also serve dinner outside in a Verandah next to the pool with vie of the Abu Dhabi, I will go back for sure.
