Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards 2018 - the winners

These are officially the best eateries in the capital

Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards 2018 - the winners

Choosing Abu Dhabi's official best restaurants was always going to be a tough task.

We spent all year checking out the capital's best venues (a hard job, but someone has got to do it) so we could crown the absolute best fairly and impartially.

It was all leading to one night - the Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards 2018.

We handed out 22 different awards across a number of categories, from Best Italian and Best Chinese to Best Café and Best Breakfast.

Then there are the final two, as well. All eyes were on our awards for Best Newcomer and Best Restaurant.

Some of our winners tasted the winning feeling for the first time, while others (we're looking at you, Zuma) are seasoned veterans when it comes to being top of the pile.

Here's the list of all the winners from this year's Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards, and you can check out our gallery of these great eateries here.
