Rosewater - Jumeirah Etihad

I was on a much-needed sibling date at Rosewater - Jumeirah Etihad a couple of days back & let’s find out what happened there.

So before getting there, we decided to do a reservation as recommended by most people on Zomato and one odd thing about that reservation call was that the operator would keep stressing on the fact that "Ma'am, the dress code would be smart casual" (once, twice, thrice, ENOUGH, I get your point)

Also I don’t intend to sound rude, but every single person I saw at Rosewater was dressed extremely casual, so I guess nobody else received the memo.

Anyhow, moving on to the food, this definitely was one of the largest spreads I’ve been to in Abu Dhabi. It was a lavish spread featuring numerous cuisines, such as Indian, Chinese, Italian, Japanese & they had a live-counter for the grills.

Honestly I don’t want to get into details, because not a single dish from any of these cuisines deserves a mention, all of them were equally bad. Yes. Life isn’t a bed of roses. *being dramatic* But no really, how can NOTHING taste good? They had so many fancy chefs with these cool hats roaming around, how did they all get it wrong? Probably, the world has Rosewater in mind, when they say; too many cooks spoil the broth.

However thank god for their desserts, tried out their cheesecake, their Ferrero cake, their chocolate fountain with marshmallows and their brownies, all of them were class apart.  

Drinks: Surprisingly, the drinks here weren’t as expensive as I expected them to be. You would pay about 35 – 40 for a pint.

Service: There wasn’t much to interact with the staff as it was a buffet, however from the little we did, they seemed polite and helpful.

Ambiance: The ambiance and feel at Rosewater is magnificent, elegant, splendid, spectacular, you know all of those typical words that are used to describe a fancy place? But yes, definitely a stunning place to be at. You also have an outdoor option overlooking the Corniche.  

Pricing: Definitely expensive (AED 250 p.p.) and absolutely not worth the price, or worth anything, actually.

Rating : 1.5/5 

P.S. I've no idea whats up with the Zomato rating!
