Tapas, pizza and Mexican dishes overlooking Yas Marina

Time Out Says

With a rooftop terrace overlooking the flashy yachts of Yas Marina and the even flashier F1 circuit, it’s perhaps no wonder that nearly every table is filled when we visit this chilled-out restaurant on a Friday evening.

The menu is a mix of different cuisines, with pizzas sitting alongside Spanish tapas and Mexican specialities.

We’re in a sociable mood, so we go for sharing-style tapas and manage to totally over order.

We start off with the garlic prawns, which certainly deliver on the garlic side. The flavour is almost overpowering but the sauce goes excellently with the other dishes such as the patatas bravas, the topping of which is delightfully hot and spicy.

We agree that the breaded calamari rings with light aioli sauce is the best dish on the table. The large rings aren’t at all oily or chewy, and despite the large portion we still manage to finish them all off.

We’re also big fans of the goat’s cheese and red onion crostini, a light and fresh relief after some of the heavier fried dishes such as the chicken fingers, which we find uninspiring after the bold flavours of the other dishes.

In a fit of gluttony, we also order a cheese platter that comes with enough of the stuff (plus plenty of chutney and grapes) to feed a gathering of four.

We’re totally stuffed from the generously sized portions, and reflect that we only really needed to order two plates each. We have fun gorging ourselves, though.
