Voting is now open for the FACT Dining Awards Abu Dhabi 2024



It's time to vote for your favourite restaurants in the capital.

After a decade of dining at restaurants across the capital, FACT has become the authority when it comes to eating out in Abu Dhabi. This year, the UAE's food and beverage industry will turn out to celebrate the very best restaurants, bars and lounges at the FACT Dining Awards Abu Dhabi 2024.

Voting for the 2024 awards is officially open. The awards cover 25 cuisine categories and more than 150 nominees. 49 awards will be given out during an exclusive invite-only event, for which the date and location will be revealed later in the year.
