Indulge in the charm of Arabia on your visit to Abu Dhabi and satisfy your inner foodie with the world-class international and local cuisine capturing all the flavours of the world.
Fortunately, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates is as rich in fine dining options as it is in culture and there will definitely be a restaurant out there to satisfy your cravings. Take a bite out of these restaurants for you to get started with…
Gourmet seafood fusion cuisine
If you find yourself on the Corniche, don’t pass up the opportunity to treat your taste buds to the inventive seafood cuisine and exotic cocktails served at Catch in the St. Regis Hotel. You can expect a theatrical and artistic atmosphere paired with magnificent views of the Arabian Gulf. We recommend ordering the caramelised black cod if you’re in the mood for fresh fish. You also can’t go wrong with their sushi or the sea bass – a signature dish prepared in Papillotte style and garnished with seasonal vegetables.
Mouth-watering Indian cuisine
Angar is a chic Indian restaurant at the Yas Viceroy Hotel on Yas Island. They offer a menu of sophisticated, yet traditional and authentic Indian cuisine with a modern twist. This is one of the top Indian restaurants in the whole of Abu Dhabi although there are many fantastic Indian restaurants in the capital. Marinated meats and seafood braised in rich flavours are served straight from the tandoor paired with fresh naan, roti and top-notch service.
The perfect Friday brunch
Friday marks the first day of the weekend in the UAE and locals celebrate this day with a Friday brunch. This usually entails a buffet-style meal. A great place to experience this tradition is at P&C Sergi Arola – a restaurant located in the Shangri-La Hotel. Their Friday brunch consists of the finest-quality seafood and Spanish dishes such as shellfish, tenderloin, kimchi chicken wings, paella, Sergi Arola’s signature “pica-pica” tapas, and a whole range of wonderful desserts.
With its French-inspired décor, you’ll feel like you’ve just been teleported from Abu Dhabi to France when dining at Brasserie Angelique, located in Jumeirah at Etihad Towers. The classy atmosphere of this restaurant is suitable for anything from a business lunch to a romantic dinner for two. Brasserie Angelique’s authentically inspired à la carte menu is created by chefs with a true understanding and passion for French cuisine and the artistry and flavours that make it exquisite and unforgettable. We recommend ordering a starter of traditional burgundy snails and the Sole Meunière as a main. Hope you’re hungry!
