We have stayed at the hotel a few months ago, and enjoyed a beautiful experience at the well architectured Capital Gate Hyatt boasting of an inclination of 18º, therefore leaning more than the Tower of Pisa at Italy. The design is urban chic, and to coincide with its standing feature, the restaurant is located at the 18th floor, and is named 18 º. The view hereafter from any restaurant or room is splendid, placing the whole of the Abu Dhabi city in a showcase. Each visit has been a worthwhile experience.
We had a dining voucher, which included a complimentary 3 course meal for 2 persons, plus adding an Entertainer® Voucher which would render one free main course for one, left us eating the best gourmet dishes at the price of just one.
With regard to taste, I’ll be as brief as possible here, and let the food pictures do the talking.
In my opinion, the Painter’s Palette of petit-fours was one of the best surprises this restaurant could offer. It had a little bit of everything: a slice of chocolate cake, Madeleines, berries, mousse, fruit and more. A total delight for the senses.
Overall the staff was very friendly, they checked to make sure we had a fabulous time and that everything in our spread was perfect; and very accommodating (they packed us an extra loaf of the oven baked bread when my Dad requested for it). The portions were gracious, and we had to pack the extras. The desserts however were too seductive to resist and we managed to gorge them all. The restaurant was well lit, perfect ambiance, great music, prompt service, and had customers enjoying themselves until late into midnight. This place is really worth it for the view, great food and impeccable service.
