The top 4 restaurants on Yas Island

seafood linguini

This man-made island attracts international tourist attention with Ferrari World, Waterworld and the Yas Marina Circuit. All those visitors naturally need food to keep them going, filling the 25km 2 district with a fabulous collection of restaurants, bars and cafés.

Once named the world's leading tourism project, you'd expect Yas Island to be a great place to go for a meal out during your stay at the Radisson Hotel, Abu Dhabi Yas Island. After you've sped round the circuit, shopped till you've dropped, slid down water slides and snapped photos of all the skyscrapers, you'll definitely be in need of a hearty refuel at one of these four leading restaurants.


Japanese style teppanyaki roasted cod fish on palm leaf

This high-end restaurant brand has bases in New York, Miami, Monte Carlo and Hong Kong, but Cipriani Yas Island's offering outdoes them all when it comes to views. Take a seat on the restaurant's outdoor terrace, where you can watch the yachts sail in and out of the marina as you sip your Bellini.

This is known as the place to be (and be seen) in Yas Island, so if you're planning a visit during the Grand Prix, you'll need to book well in advance. The menu shows off Italian and Japanese influences, with the seafood linguine and a melt-in-the-mouth black cod dish particular highlights.

lobster risotto


Looking out over the Island's futuristic harbor, Iris, Abu Dhabi is an equally good choice for an entire evening out or after-dinner drinks. Refreshing cocktails help to combat the heat, with White Summer's blend of white wine, Seven Up, soda and fresh mint a particularly cooling choice.

Resist the urge to fill up on the bite-size appetizers: as tempting as the citrus scallop carpaccio and seared quail fillet may be, they're no match for main courses like the succulent lobster risotto with parmesan, mascarpone and broccoli. Once you've had your fill, you can continue to work through the cocktail menu while listening to one of the top-class live bands that frequently play here.


Fillini Garden

A stylish Italian open-air restaurant with undoubtedly the best sunset views over the fairways of Yas Links and out towards the waters of Al Raha Creek, this hot spot is perfect for a sundowner drink any day in the week.

Located in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Abu Dhabi Yas Island this chic restaurant offers traditional homemade Italian food from risotto to pasta and much more accompanied by great vibes from sunset until late.


Enjoy the catch of the day at Aquarium seafood restaurant at the heart of Yas Marina. From scallops, mussels and sea bass to sushi, Aquarium is a haven for the seafood lover.

Book a table on the terrace overlooking the marina, it is the ideal spot for people watching.
