Afternoon tea was once only for the British, but now it’s a popular way for people in the UAE to celebrate a special event or just spend time with family and friends. Sandwiches, tiny cakes, and scones are all on the menus for Afternoon Tea, which is served in some of the city’s most luxurious places. Here are the Unmissable afternoon Tea Experiences In Abu Dhabi, from the dizzying heights of The Observation Deck at 300 to the glitz and glamour of Le Café at The Emirates Palace. 

1. The Lobby Lounge at Conrad by Hilton, Etihad Towers

The Lobby Lounge at Conrad, which is on the Abu Dhabi Corniche, serves one of the best Afternoon Teas in the city. With its beautiful bright lights and great views of the city, the Lobby Lounge serves tea in a Parisian style in a calm setting.

There are many different kinds of afternoon tea treats on the menu, from savoury sandwiches like roast beef and Scottish smoked salmon sandwiches to sweet treats like a delicious chocolate torte and a very impressive mille-feuille.

2. Observation Deck at 300 

The Observation Deck on the 74th floor of the Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers has the best view in Abu Dhabi. This place is very popular with tourists, especially because it has a 360-degree view of the city and an amazing afternoon tea menu. The food is the same as in the Lobby Lounge, but it costs more. However, the amazing 360-degree views of the city more than makeup for it.



3. Le Café, Emirates Palace

You can enjoy a gourmet meal at the beautiful Emirates Palace Hotel at Le Café. At The Emirates Palace, the afternoon tea menu goes far beyond the traditional one. It includes 24k gold flaked duck foie gras, lobster brioche buns, and salmon and cream cheese sandwiches, among other things.

Along with scones, jam, and real clotted cream, you can also get a variety of sweets like macaroons, small cakes and pastries, and mousses. Tea is an important part of Afternoon Tea, and Le Café has one of the largest selections of teas. If you really want to feel like you’re in the Emirates Palace, try a 23k gold cappuccino to help you digest.

The Emirates Palace is a real winner because of its luxurious setting, live piano music, and unique, tasty food and drinks. Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace is on Corniche Road in Al Ras Al Akhdar. 


4. The Drawing Room, The St Regis Saadiyat Island

The Drawing Room at St. Regis on Saadiyat Island is a beautiful place for afternoon tea. The calm view of the Arabian Gulf from the floor-to-ceiling windows is the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon tea.

At a St. Regis Abu Dhabi afternoon tea, both the service and the quality of the food and drinks are top-notch.
