Christmas in Abu Dhabi 2019: Christmas Day brunches, lunches and dinners

There's nothing like a big dinner to celebrate Christmas.

Turkey, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings (yes, they're welcome), lashings of gravy and dollops of cranberry sauce, it's the biggest meal of the year.

And luckily for those who like to go all out when it comes to festive feasting, we’ve got a brilliant list of the best Christmas Day brunches across Abu Dhabi.

There are options to suit all price ranges, whether you’re looking for a budget banquet costing less than Dhs200 or something a bit more extravagant.

So why not grab yourself a glass of mulled grape and have a scroll through our list, which we’ll be updating until the big day.
