You can practise social distancing and still do date night right…

Just because we’re self-isolating doesn’t mean we should be living off instant ramen and jam sandwiches. Some of our favourite Abu Dhabi dining options are still available via the magical modern convenience of takeaway and delivery. Certain restaurants are even offering this service for the very first time.

Here are just a few of our favourite from-home fine-dining options.

99 Sushi

99 Sushi Bar & Restaurant on Al Maryah Island is offering special takeaway and delivery services. Simply ‘maki’ your order over the phone in advance and you’ll be able to collect your freshly prepped request from reception. This new service will allow customers the option for fine Japanese dining in the comfort and safety of their own living room, and that’s a luxury we can nori ignore.

Four Seasons Abu Dhabi, Al Maryah Island, Sat to Thu noon to midnight, Fri 1pm to midnight. Tel: (02) 6723333, menu


Get an Italian food fix delivered straight to your front door with Roberto’s Abu Dhabi home dining service. Order your European feast, from one of three set menus, giving just two hours notice and the team at Roberto’s will bring it to your home. Prices start at just Dhs350 for one person.

Some of the best Lebanese dishes were perfected in family kitchens — what better way to complete the culinary circle than by ordering a fine example of the art, to your own family home. They’re not currently offering delivery, but there is a very welcome 25 per cent discount on all orders. Maison Beirut shares a Fairmont Bab Al Bahr address with Marco’s New York Italian, who are also currently offering that same 25 per cent off. So whether you’re craving treats from east or west, you can get some great deals on home-dining with Fairmont.

Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, Al Khor Street, Maison Beirut 5pm to midnight daily menu, Marco’s New York Italian 7pm to 10.30pm daily, menu, order and collection only. Tel: (02) 6543333. 

Dino’s Italian

Ciao! Dino’s Italian is making an offer, it’d be tough to refuse. Enjoy exceptional Italian carbs — served in the oasis of serenity – that is your own home. Veal scallopini, risotto gamberi, pizza montagnola whatever you ultimately choose, the fragrances wafting from your front door will be almost guaranteed to give your neighbours a wicked case of the FOMOs.
