istock-Drazen Zigic

The limit on the number of people allowed to sit at a table in a restaurant or café has been lifted in Abu Dhabi, provided they are from the same family.

Abu Dhabi’s Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee announced the approval that comes into effect Saturday, June 5th. 


Abu Dhabi announced restrictions in February to help curb the spread of the Coronavirus, which included a limit of four per table when dining together. 


Restaurants and Cafes must still adhere to ongoing Covid-19 safety regulations; capacity limit remains at 60 percent as well as physical distancing and wearing face masks.
