car­luc­cio’s

A start­ing price of Dhs175 makes the brunch at Ital­ian out­let Car­luc­cio’s a good op­tion for fam­i­lies on a bud­get – and its early start time of 11am means it fo­cuses a lit­tle more on break­fast dishes than many week­end feasts. On the menu you’ll find eggs, ba­con, tomato crois­sants and omelettes, but if you want lunch op­tions there’s plenty of those as well, in­clud­ing piz­zas, pasta dishes (such as spaghetti and meat­balls) and veg­e­tar­ian risotto. Clas­sics such as tiramisu are avail­able for dessert. The al­fresco area’s man­grove views make this a good op­tion in the cooler months. Price: Dhs175 with soft drinks

Eastern Man­groves Prom­e­nade, Salam Street, Abu Dhabi, Sat 11am to 2pm. Tel: (02) 6412231. Taxi: Eastern Man­groves Prom­e­nade. car­luc­cios.com
