Choosing the right spot to ensure you have the best time possible? 10 tips to help you decide.


Take a quick look at the list of items in the menu to get familiar with what sort of dietary options they carry and the price range, you should be comfortable with both before choosing the right spot. If you and your partner are vegan, then steer clear of the BBQ dinners which are available in most of the desert tours. Make sure the ambience and seating compliment the mood your trying to set for the whole night. 

To avoid any waiting around or not getting a table at all pre book with the restaurant of your choice ahead of time so you can ensure your romantic dinner goes as you wish!

Check which nights of the week are the restaurant open. Most eateries are fully booked on the weekends (Thursday and Friday) so if you do not like crowded spaces for your romantic night it's best to opt for a weekday.

Good service can make or break your special dinner. Be courteous to the wait staff so you don't have to waste time waiting and they will ensure to help you have the best time.

Will you be picking her up? If so, you have to think about parking around the venue because some parts of Abu Dhabi are so busy parking is impossible. If both of you are arriving at the restaurant separately think about public transport around the area and if the two of you have planned to stay out late be sure to book an Uber. 

Choose something that both of you enjoy like the view of the beach or the peace of the desert etc. In case you aren't sure book a place with no live music so that you won't be interrupted when talking and choose any panoramic view which can also be a start to your conversation

Look at the pictures of the seating arrangements at the restaurant you like to avoid any awkward scenarios where you can hear the people next to you. Request for a secluded spot while making your reservation so that you can start your dinner date in a comfortable note.
