    We came there for their unbelievable sushis. We drive 30 minutes and finally arrives at the restaurant. When we sat down and watch at the menu. The waitress tells us that there is no sushi at all. That half of the menu is not available. Then she add that the beef was not available etccc and so on. Very disappointed we choose something else… the bao bun were correct. But not so fantastic. We had the strange feeling to be alone in this restaurant. We take the car and drive back 30 minutes. Definitely not worth the trip. If nothing is available in à Buddha bar just close it up for the season.

    Service was poor - asked for meat to be well done and came out raw, they took it back to cook further and we asked to warm up my partners food in meantime. The plates came back stone cold and they didn’t even cook the meat more for us and it looked exactly the same. We asked again, they took it and still stone cold. We went in off peak season and there were only 3 tables of guests and still the service poor. We refused to eat our food and pay 35 euros per meal for stone cold food with waiters who didn’t offer much care. Poor service and over priced average Luke warm food. Settings beautiful as on cliff front, probably the only thing going for the restaurant/bar. I’d avoid and go into restaurants slightly out of town instead if looking for an up market special meal when on holiday (one you know you won’t leave disappointed at)

    Would highly recommend the Buddha restaurant. The great service and knowledge of wines by the staff made our evening remember full. Will certainly come back to spoil my friends and impress my guest up here.

    Ein hervorragender Abend mit tollem Essen, super Service und klasse Ambiente. Sehr empfehlenswert ist der Wagyu Beef Burger und Sushi in sämtlichen Variationen.

    Such a beautiful setting with the sun going down and the evening gentle breeze picking up. We have eaten in the Abu Dhabi branch many times and Crete @ Abaton did not disappoint. The standard of food was very good especially the chicken salad. Sushi rolls had a new local twist which we liked. We booked again 2 days later because we liked it so much.

    We have visited Buddha Bar for their Grand Opening party. I would recommend it for some special events with DJs from Buddha-Bar, it's a great life performance with amazing energy! And amazing Food! The famous atmosphere of Buddha Bar... loved it! However the handling of my dinner reservation was very unprofessional. I understand that there were special guests of Greek "Beau Mond" invited... which I don't know and don't care because I came to my favorite place to spend good time and I would like to receive service that I pay for. Restaurant hostesses didn't speak English, they lost my reservation, placed me and my partner on the farthest table from the scene/DJs performance to eat standing regardless that I have asked several times to give us some decent table, there was no recognition of our special occasion... There was very stressful environment at the restaurant's reception desk, no order - bookings were all over the place, no proper greeting. When we asked our waiter about food suggestion and ingredients, the response was: "Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the menu. Just tell me what would you like." Dear management team, If you would like to get some idea of how to handle the bookings and greet your guests in a venue like that, the worldwide famous restaurant, please let me know. I will be more that happy to help, as I have been working 2 years in one the most iconic Fine dining restaurants of New Zealand, Auckland "The Sugar Club". Kindest regards.
