One of Abu Dhabi’s most popular restaurants, Punjab Grill paves the way for fine dining, in the most tranquil of settings.

Located in the heart of Yas Links, Hickory’s panoramic views across the course and on to the sea make it a unique place to eat. The outdoor terrace is a delightful place to sit in cooler weather and enjoy the scenery: with green lawns running down to the water, it provides a relaxed environment for families with children during the day, and a special place to watch the sunset with a glass of something delectable in the evening.
The wideranging menu is just as impressive as the location, with dishes from almost every continent to please the palate. If you crave casual dining in a relaxed setting, Hickory’s is ideal.
Yas Links, Yas Island. Open, 6.30am - 12am. Telephone +971 2 810 7710.
Noodle House offers the best of South Asian food and is great for both adults and children. Enjoy a glass of something pretty while you watch the sun set over the Sheikh Zayed Grand
Mosque and enjoy the jetski fun on Maqta Creek.
The food is insanely good: for a light meal, enjoy some dim sum or some hot and sour soup, but you simply can’t go past the delectable wasabi prawns and the crispy duck with pancakes!
Souk at Qaryat Al Beri
Café Blanc at Eastern Mangroves offers a casual, traditional Lebanese experience, but with a modern twist. We love their shawarmas and mixed grill but do make sure you save room for dessert. Try the knafeh which has an orange flavour and also halawet al jibn which is a Lebanese staple, both bringing sweet cheese to a whole new level.
Stratos is Abu Dhabi’s only revolving restaurant! Dine in style, while drinking in views of the city from every angle. You can enjoy a relaxed afternoon tea, a decadent pre-dinner cocktail or dine in style after dark while watching the city lights. Our favourites include the Lock Fyne oysters and the amazing lobster mac n cheese and the cote de boeuf for sharing. A must view!
