A guide to some of the finest restaurants you can enjoy if you're at the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix

We have one gripe with the Dining Collection at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island: there are just too many brilliant options to choose from. But it's the place to be seen, so we've created a guide to the offerings. Here is a list of 16 stunning oulets that the capital has to offer. As for narrowing them down to one choice? That's on you.

Galleria Map

Almaz by Momo
Moroccan, refreshed
We could wax lyrical about so much of Almaz by Momo’s menu. Or, we could simply urge you to make a beeline for the borderline-perfect tagine.
Tel: +971 2 676 7702

Butcher & Still
Steak as it should be
Butcher & Still is loaded with rustic charm – little hints of Prohibition-era America, inside the Four Seasons. You could order something other than steak, but really, why would you?
Tel: +971 2 626 2131

Bentley Kitchen
Buzzy, modern, delicious
The first thing you note about Bentley Kitchen? The vibe. The only thing that tops it? One of their patented burgers.
Tel: +971 2 626 2131

Peru’s finest
COYA does a lot of things exceptionally well, but ordering a serving (or three) of ceviche is compulsory.
Tel: +917 2 306 7000

Cafe Milano
Italian by the water
In lieu of hopping on a flight to Milan, this spot in the Four Seasons might be our favourite place to enjoy a long lunch with an abundance of espressos.
Tel: +971 2 333 2630

Dai Pai Dong
Street food, elevated
Part of the Rosewood Hotel, Dai Pai Dong serves Hong Kong street food with an appropriate side of flair. A stylish way to get your dim sum fix.
Tel: +971 2 813 5588

Eat Greek Kouzina
Chic, casual Mediterranean
Some restaurants have a way of transporting you – and there’s no better way to channel a holiday mood than fresh seafood and skewers on a grill.
Tel: +971 2 309 2323

L’ETO Caffe
Peak café fare
There’s a reason L’ETO is winning praise the UAE over: right now, there’s maybe no better place to enjoy breakfast – or a little coffee and cake.
Tel: +971 2 441 3318

La Petite Maison
The next best thing to Paris
There’s an array of things you ought to experience at La Petite Maison, but don’t do yourself the disservice of skipping the escargot – it’s transcendent.
Tel: +971 2 692 9600

La Petite Maison

Mexican done right
We recommend a little internet research before hitting up LOCA – the menu is bursting with delicious options. Still feeling indecisive? The tacos will never fail you.
Tel: +971 2 582 3639

Old meets new
If you’re ready to step out of the realm of kabob, try the mantu – a humble Afghan dumpling with a Californian twist.
Tel: +971 2 644 1516

Win Instagram for the night
A visit to the home of Salt Bae brings with it everything you’d expect: mouth-watering dishes served with an abundance of theatre.
Tel: +971 2 679 9949

A love letter to Italy
When you’ve got a two Michelin-star chef like Enrico Bartolini advising your restaurant, you can be sure the offering will be strong. It’s hard to go wrong.
Tel: +971 2 627 9009


Five-star Lebanese
It’s not easy to be surprised by Lebanese food in a city like this, and that’s what makes Sambusek, in the Rosewood, all the more impressive. Don’t leave without trying the chicken livers and pomegranate.
Tel: +971 2 8135578

An icon for a reason
What more is there to say about Zuma – our favourite haunt for elevated Japanese fare? If you’ve not tried the black cod, place this atop your list.
Tel: +971 2 401 5900

99 Sushi Bar & Restaurant
Sushi in style
99 pulls you in and keeps you there. Elevated and polished, it’s the kind of atmosphere that seduces you into multiple rounds of nigiri.
