Firstly, it is vital to know specific location where you wish to set up the Restaurant Licence. If you have found a location which is in the mainland UAE, you will require a mainland licence. A restaurant within a Freezone area will need a Freezone licence.
The most common form of a mainland licence is a Limited Liability Company (LLC), which will require a 51% Local UAE Shareholder. If the chosen location is within a UAE Freezone then you can setup as an LLC with 100% ownership using a Freezone licence.
For the specific activity of a Restaurant, preapprovals are required from Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority or the Food Control Department of Dubai Municipality who will request that the premises have met the specific requirements to permit you to open the Restaurant licence.
