For all its South Pacific charm, the cavernous restaurant can feel deserted by day, but once the sun sets and the house band tunes up, Trader Vic’s Mai Tai bar is one of Abu Dhabi’s most popular watering holes, serving fine, atomic cocktails in crazy, exotic glasses. The table settings are surprisingly smart, with crisp white cloths, elegant cutlery and baskets of seeded breads. Mains have a pleasing, theatrical element: a caesar salad is assembled tableside by a Hawaiian-shirted waiter, and the spicy chicken curry is flanked by a crescent of 10 colourful garnishes and a boiled egg. For desserts, the crème brûlée is perfect, and the banana fritters with honey are a joy to behold. If you haven’t been to Trader Vic’s Abu Dhabi outpost – part of a chain of Polynesian-themed bar/restaurants extending from Atlanta to Taiwan – you should.
