Description: Part of the famous Al Qasr brunch recently awarded Best Brunch in Dubai by BBC Good Food Middle East, not only is the Arboretum at Madinat Jumeirah something of an ambassador for Arabian dining culture and cuisine, but it’s also a hub of great international food. Sumptuous all-day dining takes place in a light, airy and spacious environment. You can dine alfresco on our wide terrace – bordering the busy waterway and with spectacular views of the sea – or inside, under the ornate and cavernous ceiling with its iconic palm columns.

The hustle and bustle of the main meeting place and where we dined on the world’s cuisine and watched the world's nations mingle over and share their national breakfast.

So much food. Very good indeed.. of course, since it is à buffet it cannot be as delicate as thé food of a gastronomic restaurant . For instance, thé cakes are good but in France if you go to Laduree or Pierre Herme who sell pastries then there is still à différence . But overall, a very pleasant Brunch .I... More

Had breakfast here every morning whilst staying at the Dar al Masyaf villa's. The arboretum put on one an amazing breakfast every morning. There was such a wide variety of pastries, hot foods, fresh fruit, chocolate fountain for fruit, fresh juices, spreads, cereals, fresh smoothie and juice section (which is separate from the juice section), a place for nuts like...

Noisy with lots of kids screaming and going around. Lots of people... Good food, great variety, unfortunately we contracted food poisoning... Very cold for breakfast, you need a long sleeve blouse/sweater or something.. Or go early in the morning and sit outside (August) Good for dinner too, if you don't mind the noise..

This is a restaurant that does some things exceptionally well and then let's itself down on basics e.g tepid soup. Arboretum is a large restaurant with an international buffet format. The diversity of food available is truly excellent and the detail applied to some of the starters and desserts is impressive for this format of restaurant. However, service was inconsistent... More

Really enjoyed this brunch although we did think it was supposed to be freeflowing Moet champagne, instead it was Prosecco but that didnt spoil it too much. Great choice of food and good quality. Loved the quirks with a sweet shop, bakery and coconuts filled with cocktails. All the things a brunch in Dubai normally includes but throw in great... More
