A restaurant run by New York’s celebrated Maccioni Group fills us with high expectations, and rightly so. With ten restaurants dotted around the globe and only two other Circo’s in existence – in New York and Las Vegas – this is a rare dining experience. In keeping with the glitz and glamour that cities such as New York and Vegas are associated with, the stunning setting at the InterContinental Abu Dhabi fits perfectly with the brand. With the marina directly in front of the restaurant and views of the impressive Etihad Towers completing the frame, the scene is set for a memorable experience. The menu features traditional Tuscan dishes, perfectly executed by a highly-skilled kitchen. Antipasti shines through the use of intriguing ingredients, while the risottos, pastas and pizzas will delight traditionalists. Save space for the extra special desserts as well. In a gastronomic sense, expect all the fun of the circus.
