Restaurant name and location: Bentley Bistro & Bar at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi
Cuisine: European Bistro & Bar
Atmosphere: I was there on a Thursday night – buzzing, full, quite impressive for Abu Dhabi.
What they say: French inspired Bistro serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. A bar with a DJ and its own food menu.
What to order:
-Lentil salad, Burrata cheese, tomato and chili jam (a must if you love lentil salads and burratas!)
-No rice risotto (light, great as a starter)
-Fillet with egg and mushroom (tender, flavorful)
-Hand cut potato chips, grated parmesan, parsley, truffle oil
-Chocolate Hazelnut pudding with Hazelnut ice cream (reminds me of the famous molten cake!)
-Magic Wood mocktail with basil, strawberry and cranberry (refreshing, a great non alcoholic option)
Service: Ace! Our server, Ash from South Africa was amazing and knew his stuff
What I loved:
-The warm welcome – you get a chalkboard saying ‘welcome XXX’ to show the table is reserved.
-The steak was out of this world delicious.
-The atmosphere for Abu Dhabi, definitely a top place for good atmosphere.
-The freshly baked bread that was on the table… dangerous too!
Bill for two: AED300-400
