Makani Cafe

Lebanese in Al Ain

Meaning 'my place' in Arabic, this Hilton Abu Dhabi outpost has a delightful atmosphere, with plenty of palms and comfortable rattan-style furniture. The fare – from falafel and lamb-kofta sandwiches to the mixed seafood grill – is simple but satisfying. Live Arabic music creates a fitting accompaniment, as do shisha and a Lebanese wine or two.
