Seafood at Abu Dhabi's Eastern Mangroves Promenade

  |  January 23, 2014

Flooka is just the place for a quiet Friday afternoon spent gazing at the mangroves or the restaurant's beautifully appointed interior while feasting on fish tawouk and samak bel meleh.

Diners can choose from the day's catch (sometimes brought in by one of the co-founders, who happens to be a fishing enthusiast) and have their seafood cooked the way they like it: barbecued, grilled or tandoori-style.

The Lebanese restaurant's main attraction beside the menu is a lighting installation by Baroncelli, resembling a shoal of glittering fish suspended from the ceiling.

This is Flooka's second branch; the other is in Dubai Marine Resort & Spa.
