Live that charmed life with the five best things to do in Abu Dhabi this week…

If your diary is looking a little bare, don’t despair, we’ve got some inspiration headed your way.

Sunday, June 7

1. Get a true taste of Napoli with Sacci’s seductive pizza deal

The preparation for Sacci’s popular pizzas begins 48 hours before your visit, with Chef Stefano creating the dough from his secret recipe. Scattered with premium mozzarella di bufala, olive oil and fresh basil, the pizza is then baked in a wood fire oven and served, piping hot, to your table with a pint of Peroni for only Dhs49.

Sacci, The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa, Sas Al Nakhl, 5pm to 7pm daily. Tel: (02) 616 9999,

2. Make Waves for these pulled beef bao

Waves Outdoor Lounge at Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan has now reopened and they’re serving some pretty good reasons to pop-in and dine-out. They’ve got some great sharing bites for you to catch up with old friends over, and some bites we’d recommend keeping all to yourself (like the pulled beef bao, pictured above).

Waves Outdoor Lounge, Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan, 11.30am to 8.30pm daily. Tel: (02) 501 6088

There are few better places we know of a salute to the setting sun, than at Anantara Eastern Mangroves’ rooftop restaurant, Impressions. You get chic surrounds and a range of international nibbles all overlooking the green expanse of Abu Dhabi’s eastern mangroves. The perfect way to start that cruise towards the weekend.

Impressions, Anantara Eastern Mangroves, Al Kheeran, noon to 9pm daily. Tel: (02) 656 1000.
