Al a Carte Brunch, The Grille, Abu Dhabi Golf Club
We had an amazing brunch at The Grille yesterday. It is a table brunch with a set menu and you can re-order any of the dishes at any time but to be honest there was so much wonderful food we just did not have the space to have seconds!
The food was fantastic! Highlights were the baked shrimps, the mini shepherds pie, the mini fish and chips, the beef short rib and the rather unassuming looking but incredible orange sorbet dessert. As you can see from the photos most of the portions were small which was great because it meant you got to try everything and not fill up on one dish.
Drinks were unlimited and being a sucker for tequila I had to try the Berry Margarita which was freshly shaken and a delight to savor. The red and white wine on offer was South African, it was easy drinking and in my husband’s words “very tasty.”
While the brunch menu itself does not cater for kids they kindly provided a separate Al a Carte kids menu with standard kids fare. My boys really enjoyed their spaghetti bolognese and mac and cheese. The staff were also very nice and brought out a few extra helping of some of the brunch dishes that they thought my boys might like just for them to try. My eldest happily tried sushi and prawns to my surprise and joy. Their favorite desserts were the mini tiramisu pots and the cheese cake.
Now the saddest part of our brunch was that we were the only ones there! So the atmosphere was lacking. People, you are missing out on some really amazing food! While I grant you that The Grille restaurant does not have the same amazing settings as some other brunches and yes they don’t have kids entertainment it really was lovely and chilled with some of the best food we have had at a brunch.
A nice bonus was that the first 10 bookings get free pool access which we chose to use after the brunch. Was a great way to end the day.
