His energy, charm and effervescent personality shine through the whole team to bring you a wonderful experience of both food and service in the colourful carnival style that is Brazil. Chef Wanderson from Brazil brings the real Churrascaria experience to life at Chamas, using his special meat marination that gives the delicious and authentic taste.

Belgian Café – Peter Van Den Berg
Den Berg joins the city's leading hangout amongst locals, expats, and tourists. His experience originally in South Africa and then around the world combined with his interest in brewing hops make him the perfect person to advise guests on their beer selection! His attentive care through the entire team will bring to life guests' time in The Belgian Café.

Irawan presents an adventurous Pan-Asian journey, infused with authentic Indonesian flavour from his home country of Indonesia. He brings a unique blend of energy and Chi balance to the restaurant allowing guests to really enjoy the incredible cocktails and creative cuisine and yet leave with a zen-like inner calm. Irawan is supported by Chef Luthfi, who presents the most scrumptious dishes from across Asia.

Fishmarket – Ahmed Ibrahim
Ibrahim heads up the illustrious Fishmarket, the hotel's legendary seafood market-style restaurant. Bringing an unsurpassed depth of experience of over 18 years of remarkable hospitality, he will almost certainly assure a memorable meal at Fishmarket, offering wonderful views across the beach and Gulf of Arabia.

Byblos Sur Mer – Elias El Ghazal
Lebanese El Ghazal showcases true Arabian hospitality. A prominent personality in the Abu Dhabi dining scene, El Ghazal achieved number one Trip Advisor status for Byblos Sur Mer in 2015 and 2016 and consistently maintained a top five position over the last three years for the best Lebanese restaurant in town. The many awards and accolades speak for themselves and position Byblos Sur Mer as the benchmark as lead by Elias and supported by our acclaimed Chef Raed, guaranteeing a very special and authentic dining experience.
