The capital has plenty of amazing culinary choices on offer, and when Dubai residents hit up the city, it’s always important to know where to go.
Here are five of the best places you should definitely try out when you’re hanging out in Abu Dhabi.
Nolu’s, Al Bandar
This Western-Afghani fusion cafe serves up fresh and wholesome dishes with interesting twists.
The popular cafe does epic burgers, salads and breakfasts, and has just launched an Afghani brunch! Yum.
Brunch at Giornotte, Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal
One of, if not, THE best, brunch in the capital, the Ritz-Carlton’s whopping brunch spans over 27 live-cooking stations, four different rooms and there’s a WHOLE room dedicated to cheese.
AND the entire Dolce Cafe becoming a Willy Wonka heaven of desserts, ice creams, cakes and candy.
Lebanese Flower, Defense Road
It has rebranded as Zahrat Lebnan, but still serves up the best sharwarma and maneesh in town. Lebanese Flower is an Abu Dhabi institution and you should do yourself a favour and try it out…if you can get in, it gets rather busy after 8pm.

Cho Gao, Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi Hamdan Street
A popular choice with Abu Dhabi residents, Cho Gao is South East Asian fare that is fresh and flavoursome. The place gets lively on weekends, and feels like you’ve walking into a Vietnamese market. Make sure you book your place!

Brasserie Angelique, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers
It’s like walking into a Parisian bistro, with its classical chandeliers, black and white tiled flooring and comfortable leather booths.
And the French cuisine is oh-so-chic. This is perfect for a romantic date night, or for something more lively, head to the bar with your pals.
