Default Abu Dhabi restaurants!!!

Can anyone recommend somewhere nice to take my parents tomorrow for dinner in AD. Somewhere on a terrace would be good with a view.


Thanks Chris

Will take him to see the boats then move on. So anything nice on a terrace with a view would be a great recommendation.

Thanks Chris

Ooh, love Vasco's

Actually, last time we were there, it was Valentine's Day. Every table had heart-shaped balloons tied to the chairs and heart candles and confetti everywhere. The couple next to us were two guys who, judging by their conversation, were just there for a business meeting. Very awkward in the surroundings

And where did you go, and what was it like?

I went again to Hanoi, opposite NBAD on Khalifa Street, the other evening. Cheap and cheerful but top rate for what it is.

Hanoi doesn't fit into the "somewhere nice to take your parents/inlaws" category. It averages out at about AED 50-60 per head, and is great value.

Al Fanar is good for visitors, great view of the city and the brunch is good value with no messing around
