Visitors and residents of Abu Dhabi looking for a romantic seaside restaurant in which to enjoy great food and drinks, along with beautiful views, ought to seek out BBQ Al Qasr. One of the many dining spots within the luxury Emirates Palace Hotel, this seaside barbecue restaurant is the kind of place you will reminisce about in years to come, thanks to its glorious setting on the beach.
BBQ Al Qasr’s gorgeous seaside gazebos afford guests a special yet laid-back dining experience throughout the day, and a singularly romantic experience as night falls. The plush gazebos, with their flowing white curtains, cushioned seating and stunning views of the brightly-lit hotel, gentle waves and starry sky all come together to evoke an Arabia of yesteryear.
Few dining experiences are as memorable as this, not only because of the amazing setting, but because of the food, which is made up of the very best ingredients from around the world and grilled to perfection by the skilful chefs. You might be inclined to save this experience for a special occasion, but when it comes to dining at one of the most romantic restaurants in the whole of Abu Dhabi, we think it’s worth a visit any time of the year (though be sure to book well in advance if you plan to dine here at the weekend).
Fish and seafood feature heavily on the menu, as you’d expect as you enjoy the sounds of the softly lapping waves from your gazebo. There are also myriad steaks available, from premium wagyu rib-eye to tomahawk and porterhouse sharing cuts. Other meats on offer include lamb, veal and chicken, while vegetarians are catered for with the likes of roasted spinach, ricotta and potato cake. Every Wednesday, BBQ Al Qasr hosts a special BBQ Night, where you can tuck into an indulgent platter for a set price.
