That’s lemon. Not melon.
Marasi Al Bateen promenade may be a recent addition to the UAE capital, but it is already a bustling foodie hotspot in Abu Dhabi. It’s in this new location where you will find Waterlemon restaurant – not to be confused with watermelon. This Lebanese eatery serves up some pretty tasty international cuisine. Read on for more…
Waterlemon Abu Dhabi provides beautiful views of the peaceful Al Bateen Marina. And when its too warm to dine outside, the natural vibes continue within Waterlemon’s walls – thanks to some beautiful interior design and a gorgeous grass wall. Inspired by nature and an eco-friendly philosophy, Waterlemon’s motto is “we belong to earth”.
The menu features hearty dishes from pasta and salads, to sandwiches and burgers, plus some tempting appetizers including dynamite shrimp, hot buffalo wings and edamame. The Huntr visited for breakfast and sampled the scrambled eggs and the signature Lebanese breakfast dish: Zaatar and cheese manakeesh cheese and olives. We finished the meal on a sweet note with the banana tart. The food is good, tasty and well presented. All and all this is a great little cafe and the perfect option for a casual lunch or breakfast with friends.
Insider tip: Whether you visit Waterlemon for a quick breakfast meal or a long leisurely lunch, don’t miss their mango and avocado juice.
