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.
