Seafood Night at CuiScene, Fairmont Bab Al Bahr

CuiScene at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr hosts a spectacular Seafood Night every Thursday.

The popular, multi award winning CuiScene restaurant at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr has an exceptional Seafood Night every Thursday that offers the perfect way to relax and unwind after a busy working week.

Located along the banks of the Khor Maqta’a CuiScene has one of the most spectacular locations with stunning views of the Grand Mosque and Sheikh Zayed Bridge and exquisite food to make the evening memorable.

The excellent weather begged to be enjoyed so we opted for an outdoor table along the edge of the patio and settled down for some quality time and great food.

With an option for indoor seating discreetly spaced apart and this excellent outdoor space combined with the huge array of food guests are totally spoilt for choice.

The service is discreet and attentive at the same time, we were greeted warmly, like old friends, and soon the drinks arrived with an invitation to go in and get started.

So we stepped in and were greeted by a display of the finest seafood salads, all packed in individual serving portions ready to grab, the Lobster salad and the seafood cocktail were absolutely divine.

The Greek Salad, though not seafood, had the freshest feta cheese we have tasted in a while and the subtle dressing made it exceptionally refreshing.

The fresh seafood counter comes up next with a huge selection of the freshest oysters, clams, crab legs, shrimp and more along with a selection of sauces.

The oysters were so fresh we could taste the sea water and with a twist of lime they were spectacular.

Right next is the sushi selection, rows and rows of exquisitely prepared sushi rolls await, the California Rolls were a standout, fresh and delightful.

The folks at CuiScene don’t do things in half measures, they just have to offer you a complete experience so you have a selection of exceptional cheeses form around the world waiting for you. We just couldn’t resist asking for a sampler platter.

The Mains

The Carvery Section is mouth wateringly stunning, they just had to throw in some beef and chicken to add to the seafood mix. The slow cooked rib eye was decadent and the plump chicken kegs were a hard act to resist.

There was an excellent grilled fillet of fish that just fell apart and had a delicately flavored crust that paired well with a side of fresh grilled veggies and a sharp lemon butter sauce.

There is a huge grill station offering a myriad of fresh seafood grilled to order right in front of your eyes, we were sold on the lobster tails and the giant shrimp.

The lobster was superbly prepared, soft and sweet with a tangy butter sauce to enhance the flavors, this was the highlight of the evening.

There is also a stir fry section rustling up the most decadent noodles and fried rice that is made to your request, we loved the spicy seafood fried rice the Chef put together for us.

The Desserts

Now you have to keep in mind that CuiScene prides itself on its stunning dessert selection so please keep this in mind as you eat or it will be a shame to miss out on these delectable creations.

The range is just endless, from Arabic treats like piping hot Umm Ali to mini Chocolate eclairs and delectable crepes made to order, they will spoil you with choice.

The chocolate mousse was just simply irresistible and we had to try the pineapple panna cotta which was fresh with a slight tang that made it so refreshing.

The Verdict

Well we are just left without words to describe the experience, the food is exceptionally good and the variety is just amazing. We expected it to be as billed a Seafood Buffet but it is much more than just that which is great value for money and makes for a superior dining experience.

We highly recommend popping over for this Seafood Night while the weather is great so you can have a fantastic experience with your friends and loved ones. This is by far one of the best Seafood Nights in Abu Dhabi.
