Abu Dhabi restaurants open for daytime dining over Ramadan – 2017

Abu Dhabi restaurants - Ramadan dining - FooDivaRamadan is drawing closer and if you are not fasting, like me, you will want to know where best to grab breakfast, lunch, or coffee in Abu Dhabi. Just like last year, here is a round-up of independent Abu Dhabi restaurants and cafés that are open for dining IN during the day over the holy month.

The 52 establishments included are only those not based in hotels, which will have their usual restaurants open as normal. We have tried to include some of the capital’s more casual, hidden wonders to complement the well-known concepts, whilst avoiding those just open for take-away or delivery. Opening hours and telephone numbers have been verified, but please call ahead to be on the safe side. And if you’re in Dubai, here’s a similar guide.

If you have any additions or changes, let us know in the comments, or on your favourite social media channel using the hashtag #RamadanDining and we will update this guide.
