International
Annually voted Abu Dhabi’s “Most Romantic” restaurant, BBQ Al Qasr’s seaside gazebos provide the very best seaside and skyline view in the city as you dine al fresco. BBQ Al Qasr affords an elegant, yet casual, dining experience throughout the day, but evening evokes an Arabia of yesteryear as diners savour a lavish meal beneath the stars on the beach. Few dining experiences are as complementary as divine food grilled to perfection by the sea, and BBQ Al Qasr sources the very best ingredients from around the world to whet the international appetites of our discerning guests.

Das Restaurant ist für die Essensqualität deutlich zu teuer. Das Ambiente und das Gesamterlebnis sind schon besonders, aber da Essen war nicht doll.

We brought our two daughters for a special holiday meal and could not have more pleased with our experience. The food was wonderful and fresh exactly what we had hoped. We shared a grilled seafood platter and found it to be generous and beautifully cooked. It was a very chilly and somewhat breezy evening and we were brought blankets to be warm. Great service as well. We will look forward to going again!!

While in Abu Dhabi for a well, we definitely wanted to check out the grandeur of the Emirates Palace Hotel. Decided to enjoy BBQ Al Qsar and it was amazing. Located outside the back of the hotel, the individual dining cabanas are located directly on the beach so you enjoy the sound of the waves the entire time. The view is spectacular. Off the the left is the lit up Presidential Palace, to the right is the Corniche boardwalk area - beautifully lit as well.

Food options are plentiful and fresh - we enjoy octopus, tuna, lamb. And the Tomato Tarte entree was to die for. Service is attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back.

And if you are looking for a romantic setting? This would be hard to beat.

Lovely location on the beach. Service excellent. Food at these prices was somewhat disappointing. There are some excellent restaurants in Abu Dhabi and the overall culinary experience here was somewhat underwhelming.

Quantity does not mean quality.
Lamb chops came by two, five pieces in total, and were not deliciously grilled on a charcoal be as could be expected; the rib eye was grilled medium+ and not medium rare as requested.
When you price lamb chops at 340 AED (80 EUR, or 90 USD!) and the rib eye at 330 AED, you are expected to deliver the best.
Emirates Palace delivered an under average experience at the price of a Michelin starred restaurant.
There are much better alternatives in the UAE for a BBQ on the beach.

Unfortunately we had to suffer from the Russian Music festival that took place on the beach of the hotel the same night. We could barely speak to each other as the Music was very very loud.
Difficult to really appreciate the diner....we found that the restaurant direction acted very poorly as they did not warned us about it and did not offer a drink or anything to compensate for this.
For a $$$$ restaurant you can imagine our disappointment !!

15 mins after we arrived, a very loud Indian party started and we could barely hear each others voices. It was extremely uncomfortable. We thought we should've been warned of this close by party beforehand.

The restaurant menu is outrageously overpriced; 180 Dirham for a burger, +400 for fish and +600 for steak. The food was good though.

Maybe if in a different and more quiet settings this place would have been worth the money.

This was a treat for my partner after looking at all the different high end meat restaurants while on holiday. It was a great surprise in terms of the grandeur on arrival as I hadn’t told him where we were going and the setting is beautiful. It was pretty windy where we sat which was annoying at times but overall fine. Food was very good, meat very tender and tasted lovely. A very expensive meal nonetheless. You obviously pay for the setting as well as the food. We were also served a platter for ‘2’ which could have fed a family of 4 and luckily were able to give our left overs to friends who live here and hadn’t tried the food. Overall good. With a price tag.
