We had a late weekend breakfast at the Corniche Restaurant at Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche. We travelled to Abu Dhabi as we wanted to visit the emirate for a day tour. We arrived at the hotel just in time for the late breakfast to start which is around 12:30pm.
Located on the Corniche area, the five-star luxury Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche houses over 280 rooms. Their Corniche restaurant is in the lobby area and is very spacious and can cater to a large group. We were provided with some welcome drinks which was a great way to start the buffet after a couple of hour’s drive from Dubai.

It’s been quite a while since my wife and I visited Abu Dhabi and we were finally able to drop by one Friday weekend. This visit to Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche was a great way to start our tour.
We kept coming back for servings of their roasted lamb and chicken, humus and moutabal. They also served us a mixed fruit smoothie and detox drink.
For dessert, we recommend you try their cronuts and caramel nuts and chocolate tart. This really went well with some hot tea and coffee servings!
couldn’t get enough of this cronut donut! and this caramel nuts and chocolate tart
The staff were very helpful and provided great service. They were very proactive in making sure that we had everything we needed. So great job to the team for their attentiveness. Thanks to Rakesh, Lama and Shafi for making us comfortable.

We dined with friends and what turned out to be just about an hour of food and conversations turned into three! Yes, we stayed there until 3:30pm which was of perfect timing as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was to open at 4pm (on Fridays).
