Casttello Restaurant, Smokers Heaven YUCK

  • Name: Casttello Restaurant
  • Location: Mina, Abu Dhabi
  • Tel: 02 673 3344
  • Cuisine: Italian-Lebanese
  • Price: Dhs 100-500
  • Credit Cards Accepted: Yes

I just love the location of this restaurant, it is far away from the crowdedness and you can never have a parking problem. They have a good food range and they have a nice presentation too..

The prices are little expensive for such a place..
What I really hate about this place is that they don’t have a smoking free area, which SUX. You sit to enjoy a meal and all you eat and breath is the smoke from people smoking (Pretending being Bob Marley, which they never WILL, not in a million year) and having disgusting Shisha. I just wanna know! What the hell is cool and healthy about that!!
That is F***ingy bad for our lungs!!??? Am not ready to die yet, or at least not being DEAD because of cancer!!

Here are some pictures, they have very nice drinks

I hated that they had only yucky Evian Water

Bread Basket (Warm and nice)


Hummus (VERY Good)

Grilled Halloumi Cheese (It was HELL salty)

Fried Kebbah (I love how they present it in a tortilla basket)

Stuffed Vine Leaves (Gotta Love it)

Cheese Pizza

Tiramisu (Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah)

Overall, Nice location, Nice food, Nice service, you will enjoy this place if you are a smoker, but if you don’t smoke and hate smoking, this is TOTALLY not the place for you (to start having cancer)..
For me, it is on my "X List"..


  1. Girl, you are funny , LOL, I couldn't stop laughing :DD

    1. I'm glad that someone is having fun :p

  2. Thanks for the info...
    I'll give them 4 out of 10 points…
    Who wants to b at smoky place?
    Getting additional taste…phew

  3. I agree with you, sitting around people that are smoking is horrible. Once again the food you have on your post is amazing.

  4. i´m really hungry right now' delicious photos :)

  5. Those drinks look lovely, such a shame about the smoking

  6. Ohhh, that delights! =p
    I hope I can go through my blog and maybe we can become followers. =)
    Have a great weekend!

  7. The photos all looked good. If everyone in the place is a smoker, then they don't care. The proprietor should have a smoke-free section, unless they don't care about non-smokers. At least they should have proper ventilation.

    If I were you I would not return there.

    It is amusing to me in that here in the USA it is impossible to find a restaurant that allows smoking.

    Love reading your reviews, do not know much about your corner of the world.

    1. Anthony, you are so lucky, I wish here we had the same rules about smoking in restaurants.. Now you know about my part of the world, or at least you know about the food :p

  8. Lovely blog..
    I enjoyed reading your review..

  9. Me too, I hate places that have no respect for Non-Smokers.. THEY SUCK

  10. But the food looks good.
