INVITED REVIEW: The essence of iftar in Essence, Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi


This is our last weekend invitation for iftar done in Essence located in Beach Rotana, Tourist Club area in Abu Dhabi means Ramadan is about to end. How time flies isn’t it? I can still remember when we were on the preparation stage and thinking process for the whole month.

Essence is in the lobby level on the right side upon entering. It was quite cold once we arrived in the restaurant but as Marie said, one of the staffs who led us to our table, inside the restaurant itself it will be warm. And so it was!

Upon entering the main area, Ramadan beverages are placed and behind them are Nuts, Fruits and fresh sliced ones. (Hamza ate a lot of strawberries! Shhhh!)

They got 2 Lamb Ouzi stations. The difference is with the rice. One is with Biryani and the other is with Oriental. Salad bar is filled International ones even with seafood also. Sushi is also included in this area. Now the Cold Mezze area is loaded with variety of selections that are proudly handcrafted by the chefs.

Harees has made a very impressive taste for us. It was the first time that we had it on how it should taste and be done. As hubby said, just by looking at it, he can say ‘this must be tastes good’ and never failed!

It’s a wide and extensive buffet as we call it lavish iftar and they want to spoil the guests with happiness in the tummy. From Arabic to Asian cuisines you’ll be leaving totally worth of what you’ll be paying.

Dessert is having it’s on separate area showcasing elegantly a mix of Arabic and International ones and even an Ice Cream station on one corner. By this time I had my capuccino also to end my meal.

Staffs are non-stop roaming around to provide service and they are indeed hospitable. Hamza even made a friend from one of them.
