Lazy Lunch at Tamba:  Hangovers are temporary, the stories are forever! One of Abu Dhabi’s most beloved restaurants is Indian hot spot Tamba, offering exceptional cocktails, a beautiful wrap-around terrace and desserts that have gained such a strong reputation that many people visit the restaurant just for the final course. The Lazy Lunch is a full table-service brunch (so no traipsing around buffet lines) and features oysters, the restaurants signature Delhi Mix and a succinct selection of global dishes with a distinctive modern Indian twist. Save room for the ‘lasting impression’ – a dessert platter featuring several favourites including The Break-Up, which team Out & About considers the BEST dessert in town.

Friday Best Brunch at Four Seasons Al Maryah Island: The Four Seasons and family-friendly may not be two phrases you would necessarily expect to find in the same sentence yet the waterfront all-day-dining restaurant is one of the most family-friendly brunches in town. For the kids, there’s a whole room dedicated to fun and games that is fully supervised. For adults the food ranges from sushi to carvery to Middle Eastern favourites and while the majority of food is found on the expansive buffet, roaming trolleys bring additional treats to the table which change regularly.

Nahaam at Jumeriah Etihad Towers: The Friday brunch at Nahaam has become an Abu Dhabi institution and is notable for exemplary service and the plethora of food available as part of the international buffet.

The Market Brunch at Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas: A new contender for biggest brunch in town, The Market Brunch has the big buffets but is doing things a little differently.

The premium package grants guests access to a private courtyard replete with champagne, premium spirits, oysters and caviar – a nice touch!

Aqua Brunch at Rosewood Abu Dhabi: Another great brunch for families thanks to the Rosebuds kids club which is likely to keep little brunchers happy with games and activities. The brunch selection at the Rosewood is by no means the largest in town but is a focus on quality over quantity and acts as a showcase for the hotel’s culinary offers. Expect Middle Eastern delights from Sambusek and dim sum from Dai Pai Dong. Aqua’s brunch showcases an array of international dishes each representing its traditions and heritage in a beautifully designed dining room.

Wok & Roll Brunch at Mr Miyagi’s: Arguably the liveliest venue on Yas Island at the moment. A slice of Bangkok’s frantic Khao San Road comes to Abu Dhabi via cocktails served in buckets and karaoke performances in a venue that resembles a Thai beach bar. Miyagi’s boasts a brunch menu of Thai favourites such as Pad Thai and green curry but in reality, it’s more about drinking and having a good time than the food!

Thursdays from 8pm – 11pm / Fridays from 2pm – 5pm and 7pm – 10pm
