Al Shams Restaurant & Bar

Casual Arabic dining in Abu Dhabi overlooking the Gulf.

At Al Shams, we invite you to all-day dine in comfort. Snack on mezze without ever leaving your poolside lounger, or head into the air-conditioned cool of the restaurant.

Evenings invite unwinding, with poolside cocktails and shisha. Join us for Bedouin Taste of Arabia nights on the beach. 

Al Shams, notable among Abu Dhabi Arabic restaurants, is located on the north shore at Desert Islands.
