While its bigger sister might be the big name when it comes to UAE cities, Abu Dhabi isn’t going to be overshadowed by its neighbouring town. Perhaps a slightly less obvious destination to next-door Dubai, Abu Dhabi serves as a spot for in-the-know locals and tourists looking for something slightly less mainstream.

The results are a dynamic city with an incredible dining scene that spans everything from casual restaurants to fine dining. Abu Dhabi has a vast number of restaurants to choose from and offers some of the most diverse cuisine choice across the emirate. The vibrant and varied restaurant scene means you have the opportunity to sample dishes that take influence from around the world. With big names such as Hakasaan, Frankie’s and Marco Pierre White all rapidly expanding in Abu Dhabi, there has never been a better time to dine out in Abu Dhabi.

Part of the allure of dining in some of the most interesting Abu Dhabi restaurants is their gorgeous interiors, stunning views and far-reaching menus. For breakfasts and brunches, our favourite picks have to be spots overlooking the waterfront. Here you’ll be able to bask in the warm glow of that Emirati sunshine while enjoying plates of breakfast favourites (and a round or two of cocktails too, should the notion take your fancy). When it comes to dinner, there’s no denying that booking a restaurant with a view is a sure-fire way to guarantee impressing your guests. Plump for a table in one of the city’s many skyscrapers and you’ll be sure to enjoy a dazzling twinkle of lights from the buildings below – there’s truly no better way to soak up the skyline of the city.

From traditional Emirati cuisine through to Italian, Japanese and American food – this little corner of the UAE has it all when it comes to dining out.
