Been there twice trying to understand what is the hype all about. Still puzzled. Food is overpriced for no apparent reason. Wouldn't recommend.

The Meat Co is a must, not only for its location with a view of the Mosque but also for the great food and service. We had a great romantic evening with lovely coctails and desserts, this is a must when you visit Abu Dhabi. Service is fantastic and even the Manager came himself to check on us.

Absolutely love The Meat Co. for amazing food, great service and wonderful views! If you visit, don't forget to try the Salt & Pepper Calamari for an appetizer, the 300gram Ribeye, Classic Burger or Red Snapper for main course. Or try all 4! I don't recommend the fish and chips. Wasn't the best I've had in Abu Dhabi!

We had another wonderful brunch experience here with a big group of friends and a delicious meal on the balcony overlooking Sheik Zayed Mosque and the water. Food and service were amazing - I had an Argentinian steak but others loved their Prawns and Salmon. Loved the Chicken Livers and Grilled Halloumi - and the other appetizers we ordered. Very...

Unless you are a meat hungry teenager and want a beer. Go there. For the rest there are far better steak houses nearby that also can serve wine that is good.

Went for meal last night, first time in Abu Dhabi and treated by partners daughter. It was fab. Service was excellent, food was amazing. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Would definitely recommend this place.

We love The MeatCo in Joburg so we gave this one a try but had not realized how pricey a South African steakhouse can be in Abu Dhabi!!! Having said that, the meat was good and service friendly. Getting a table on the terrace with a view on the great mosque is an experience in itself.
