Abyat, the Levant-themed restaurant, fuses mouth-watering tastes of the Middle East kitchens of Lebanon,
Syria, Jordan, and Palestine, with an exciting traditional-meets- modern twist. Deliciously varied and beautifully
presented in a home-style of cooking, the dishes burst with ﬂavors of traditional Arabic aromas and ﬂavors,
while the beverage menu oﬀers a wide selection.
Subtly surrounded by a panoramic view of the city’s skyline on the horizon, Abyat has perfectly positioned on the
beachfront to oﬀer its customers indoor and outdoor seating, with the choice of shisha to accompany their meals
and drinks. “In Arabic, we say ‘Bayte, Baytak’, which means my home is your home. We aim to bring back the
simplicity of old times, and cook Levant food the way it was initially intended to be made – simple, palatable,
ﬁlling and any reason to gather around the kitchen table”, says Chef Mohamed Jamal, Head Chef at Abyat. The
name ‘Abyat’ translates from the Arabic meaning of the word poetry, with the turquoise-themed decor
complimenting the lines of communication between the heart and the spoken word. Such details can be seen in
the lyrics printed in the menus, the art pieces hung on the walls, the literature that gently adorn the venue, as
well as the timeless music that plays in the background – from the likes of Fairuz to Farid Al Atrash.
