Located at Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas the Beach House serves unique home-made dishes from the Mediterranean coastline, prepared family style. Beach House offers stunning views, guests can choose to dine indoors or outdoors and absorb the magnificent views of the tranquil Saadiyat Beach.
Today we are visiting Beach House for lunch. From the Tapas menu we order Patatas Bravas, Crispy Whitebait with Lime Aioli, Crispy Slow Stew Short Ribs with Smoked Paprika and Tomato Salsa, Warm Asparagus with Poached Egg and Parmesan and Oven Roasted Prawns with Garlic, Chili and White Grape. From the Salad menu we select the Burrata with Datterino Tomatoes, Basil and Grissini.
The food is served family style to our table, allowing us to share each dish. It arrives in good time and piping hot. The Crispy Slow Stew Short Ribs with Smoked Paprika and Tomato Salsa are delectable, flaking off the fork, every bite is delightful. The Burrata is fresh and at the sight of our knife cuts open and oozes over the tomatoes, true Mediterranean style, it does not disappoint. My dining partners favourite dish is the Crispy Whitebait with Lime Aioli. It is hard to find Whitebait on a menu in the city, let alone great tasting Whitebait, but this dish delivers in every way. Although served to share this is one dish enjoyed only by my dining partner, who is reluctant to share. Foodie problems, I’m sure you can relate.
Next to arrive are the Oven Roasted Prawns with Garlic, Chili and White Grape. The prawns are fantastic and my personal favourite, a beautifully rustic and mildly buttery taste, with a tiny hint of chilli, gives this dish a depth of flavors. The Patatas Bravas are so good that we cannot resist ordering a second dish for the table.
Overall Beach House is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner, the menu is that good we will be returning for a second visit very soon. The menu is also clearly labelled for a variety of diets, such as vegetarians or those gluten-free. We love the tapas menu which we feel is perfect for lunch although larger plates of the same dishes are available on the menu.
Apart from a great Mediterranean menu Beach House is also a great spot to relax and enjoy a sundowner whilst watching the sunset on the pristine white sandy beach.
