Friday brunch is an institution in Abu Dhabi.  Abu Dhabi residents tend to sleep late on a Friday morning and then meet friends and family for brunch at a hotel restaurant.

Hotels offer a fixed price brunch buffet that is open typically from 12:00 noon until 2:00 pm (although it can be longer).  It is, as the name suggests, a combination of breakfast and lunch foods. There is usually something to suit all palates.

Of course everybody has their favourite place  for Brunch, but if you are looking for something extra special then why not try the 'Bubbly Brunch' at the 'Al Fanar revolving restaurant'  ( taxi : Le Royal Méridien,  Abu Dhabi)  .  In addition to the bottomless bubbly, the Al Fanar offers everything from a full cooked English breakfast, full Roast dinner, to a selection of all the beautiful Arabic starters such as hummous and tabouleh.  You can even get a bowl of cereal  too if you wish!  The slowly rotating restaurant offers stunning views and if you stay long enough, you will be rewarded with a birds eye view of the whole city.   Photographs and full review of the Al Fanar restaurant  can be found here
