If you’ve ever wanted to know what it would be like to have a house on the beach then you really need to head over to Saadiyat Island. Just imagine enjoying a drink or a meal while dipping your toes in the sand.

The Beach House, nestled in five-star luxury resort the Park Hyatt, is beautifully designed and we’re instantly impressed with this homely dining venue. Thanks to the warming tones of the wooden interior, the place feels inviting.

There’s a mix of comfortable seating for both small and large groups and an impressive open kitchen. But with the cooler weather now settled in, the time is nigh for a little al fresco dining. The outdoor seating and cosy rooftop bar easily makes this one of the most romantic places in Abu Dhabi, especially if you are there to catch the sunset across the Gulf. It’s also a great place to get away from the bustle of the city.

There’s a range of Mediterranean-influenced small plates for both lunch and dinner, and the focus is on quality produce and simple execution.

All the food on the menu is sourced only from sustainable and local ingredients.

The starter of meatballs is extremely delicious. The braised aubergine with basil and tomato provides a very flavourful sauce and the melted manchego cheese adds depth and richness. With such a beautiful piece of fish, there is very little needed to make the grilled tuna loin taste incredible. A refreshing mango sorbet finishes off the meal perfectly.

Dining here leaves you feeling full, relaxed and – if the quality of ingredients is high on your wishlist – inspired. The service is good and the staff cater to any requests, such as substituting ingredients, with great efficiency. Be sure to head to the rooftop after dinner for some laidback beats, too.

THIS WAS OUR VISIT VISIT TO THE PARK HYATT HOTEL, FIRST IMPRESSION ON THE FIRST EVENING WHOW!! WE HAD A LATE SUPPER SITTING ON ONE OF THEIR RATTAN CORNER SOFAS INCHES FROM THE BEACH BY CANDLELIGHT-FANTASTIC. WE HAD LUNCH HERE MOST DAYS, AND DINNER THREE TIMES. DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE PRE DINNER DRINKS IN THE UPSTAIRS BAR, AND WATCH THE SUNSET GO DOWN OVER THE ISLAND. FABULOUS RESTAURANT, BRILLIANT FOOD/WINE, AND THE SERVICE FROM VICTOR AND HIS TEAM WAS FAULTLESS AND EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL. CANNOT WAIT TO DINE HERE AGAIN ON OUR NEXT VISIT TO ABU DHABI ON HOLIDAY FROM THE UK
