Top 18 restaurants in Abu Dhabi

The winners of the 2011 Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards were revealed yesterday night during a ceremony at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.



It was no easy task. Approximately 100 restaurants, divided into 18 different categories, were shortlisted. But the talented team of food critics and gluttons put together by Time Out was finally able to select the very best restaurants in Abu Dhabi.

I’ve personally tried out some of the specialties and delicacies of ten of the selected restaurants and I can tell you they are truly worth a visit.
