Grabbing a bite to eat on Al Maryah Island is about to get a lot more interesting.

High-end shopping mall The Galleria on Al Maryah Island will debut seven new food and beverage outlets, representing cuisines from around the world.

Check out this list below to find out what’s to come.

Roberto’s Abu Dhabi

Roberto's Abu Dhabi - Restaurant

Currently in a soft opening, the venue is the second for the brand here in the UAE. The kitchen is under the direction of Italian Michelin starred chef Enrico Bartolini and will be serving up fine-dining Italian cuisine. There’s also indoor and outdoor seating, an in-house bakery and extended opening hours.

Ranked as one of the best restaurants in the world again this year, this French Mediterranean restaurant is expecting to open its first Abu Dhabi outlet on September 1, 2017. “Abu Dhabi will be another step forward,” said Chef Raphael Duntoye during an interview with What’s On last year. “With every LPM we try to make it better than the last one. I think this is what we are trying to achieve. Also around 15 percent of the offerings will be different from Dubai.”
