Extraordinarily opulent! 24k gold coffees, ice cream, water, etc. The staff were so helpful and kind. I had heard some negative reviews, however, I do not have a single negative to report. From the time I entered until I left it was great.

Nice place to meet in Abu Dhabi. If you go through there, do not miss out on the Havana Club bar. Saddan, the bartender is a luxury. You can not miss his Negroni.
