Bord Eau Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi
Revive the romance. With views that stretch over Maqta Creek, twinkling candles, gold drapes and an alfresco terrace, settings don’t get much more romantic than this – consider it the ultimate date-night spot.
Vive le France! This is hands-down one of the best eateries in town, with fresh ingredients flown in to guarantee authenticity.
Start at the beginning. As delicious as the mains are, don’t be tempted to skip the starters. With a tantalising selection of dishes to choose from,we recommend the classic foie gras soulard, which arrives slathered onto a slice of brioche and dressed with a divine plum and honey chutney.
Indulge in dessert. Prepare to be blown away by the rich and indulgent signature dark chocolate extravaganza. Been to Bord Eau before? Not to worry – a new version is unveiled each year, so it will be hard to get bored.
