As the busy season begins in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi food connoisseurs will be thrilled to learn that one of the city’s most iconic and luxurious fine-dining restaurants has made its much-anticipated return.


Ray’s Grill, the premium steakhouse at Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers, has reopened in spectacular style with a fresh array of delicious, sumptuous meats, enrapturing specialties and premium beverages.


Situated on the 63rd floor, the sophisticated hideaway is renowned for being one of the most impressive and lavish dining spots in the city. Leaving every guest amazed by its lofty 360-degree views of the city skyline and sparkling Arabian Gulf, Ray’s Grill is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions or honour important milestones.


Closed since Le Petit Chef, the popular and theatrical culinary experience came to an end in July, the Ray’s Grill team has used the last few months to make improvements to the unique venue’s overall look and feel.

Featuring plush furnishings and a calming ambiance, the curated menu by Head Chef Daniel Irvine is all made with fresh, high-quality ingredients and premium produce sourced from every corner of the earth.


Born and trained in the UK, Chef Daniel has worked at numerous luxury hotels across the world and he has been treating diners at Ray’s Grill to his enchanting recipes for many years. A genuine natural talent and bright personality, he pours all his knowledge of cutting-edge techniques and flawless skills into every creative specialty.


Presenting an unforgettable interactive and immersive dining experience, diners are invited to relax, absorb the incredible glittering vistas from the floor-to-ceiling windows, and watch in wonderment as Chef Daniel and his team prepare tasty specialties such as Angus beef, tuna and mushroom tartare, and the signature chef’s salad, crafted from the finest colourful, crunchy, and flavoursome seasonal produce, all straight at the table.


The succulent sharing-style Chateaubriand and meaty Tomahawk are also expertly calved at each table, while guests are encouraged to admire the unique restaurant’s full array of sumptuous, sweet delights and enjoy having the decadent dessert trolley to come straight to them.


Further enticing options are found amongst the classic appetisers of shrimp cocktail and crab cakes, the choice of grilled fresh seafood, vegetarian-friendly cauliflower steak and delectable double-patty smash burgers, made with 100% minced chuck steak and adorned with various irresistible toppings.

Meat lovers will be in their element with the extensive assortment of world-famous premium cuts and succulent grills, which are all complemented with a curated choice of paired aromatic grapes, playful hops and signature cocktails.


The knowledgeable Ray’s Grill wine sommelier is happy to recommend the perfect variety to enhance every meal, while the venue’s extensive wine cellar contains endless smooth and delicious grape blends from the globe’s most prestigious vineyards.  

Then, once the memorable feast is completed, every guest is invited to extend their magical evening up in clouds even further with some opulent after-dinner drinks at Ray’s Bar, found just one level below. Adding additional thrills and intrigue, diners are encouraged to get there via a mysterious secret passageway that leads directly from Ray’s Grill down to the sizzling night spot on the 62nd floor. Providing an exciting way of exploring the hidden charms of the iconic hotel, every guest is given a pin code that grants them exclusive entry.
