Time Out Says

Li Beirut has all the makings of being an Abu Dhabi favourite.

Great food, a beautiful setting and superb service make this elegant eatery a worthy option for a memorable evening.

It’s a shame that when we arrive at peak time on a Friday the place is almost empty, but it doesn’t detract from an enjoyable meal.

We kick off our Lebanese-inspired feast with beautiful prawns provençal, cooked to perfection in a tangy yet light sauce. A portion of batata harra (spicy potatoes with garlic and coriander) also goes down a treat.

The mains menu has a decent range of Middle Eastern classics, most with a modern twist, including king fish fillet with harra sauce, and chargrilled lamb chops.

Instead, we opt for the Arabic mixed grill, with lamb meat, kofta, shish taouk and riyash providing a gorgeous mix of flavours.
The slow-cooked lamb shank is a delight too, with incredibly tender meat served on a bed of semolina and chickpeas.

Dessert comes in the form of a mouth-watering take on the traditional kunafa, which is wrapped around ashta cheese and draped with caramel honey sauce. Meanwhile, the Arabic coffee chocolate globe, filled with fudge, popping candy and rose textures and topped with a hot chocolate sauce, is pure indulgence with a theatrical twist.

If you feel like dressing up in your finery and enjoying a sophisticated night on the tiles, you could do a lot worse than Li Beirut.
