How sad that there will no longer be the glorious Friday brunch at Spectrum. The staff are very present with their bubbly pours and exemplary service. Vivek was especially wonderful to our large table and never failed to serve with a smile.

As a chef this experience is definitely unique and amazing eating in the pitch dark really does heighten your other senses. Being able to focus on the food and nothing else is a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this to any foodie. I have tried the blind folded eating experience but some of your senses are interfered with. In Noire... More

We held our staff end of year night out, the staff were extremely helpful and the service was excellent. The food choice is excellent. It is very disappointing that the venue is closing and being replaced by a fish restaurant. We have been coming to Spectrum since it first opened 10 years ago and feel that Dubai is losing once...

Whenever we have guests coming to Dubai, we usually take them to this Brunch. Why? The food is lovely, the ambience and service is outstanding! It is a grown ups venue, we seldom see kids here and that is a huge plus for us! We will keep coming here for entertaining our guests.
