Review: Superb steakhouse is a meat lovers dream

Time Out Says

You just know you are in for a special night when you walk through the doors at this sophisticated steakhouse.

Once inside, you will be greeted by a raised island seating area, where guests reign over a pretty stretch of water, before you spot the shiny Time Out Abu Dhabi Best Steakhouse award from 2015 taking pride of place on the wall.

This a venuethat doesn’t rest on its laurels. As we take a seat in the darkly-lit and sleek main dining area we are welcomed by attentive staff, who we soon find out have an excellent knowledge of the extensive menu.
We kick off with delicious razor-thin slices of wagyu beef carpaccio, complemented well by tempura veal sweet breads.

The main attraction here is, of course, steak, and it comes in plenty of varieties and sizes. We choose a sumptous Angus beef prime tenderloin, cooked perfectly medium rare with a pleasant flash of pink running through the centre. We are even presented with a choice of six steak knives to tackle our tasty cut. Meat demolished, the tropical passion dessert, a white chocolate ganache with passion fruit gel, caps off an excellent meal at one of the best steakhouses in the capital.

The bottom line
Southern Sun spot is a sizzling success.
