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.

We have had the Friday brunch several times, there is no getting away from the fact that the food and beverages are faultless. Equally, we have stayed in the hotel and it was superb. However, in our view the service has gone downhill significantly. We are a middle aged couple, and there was just the two of us. We were... More

I am a regular 'bruncher' in Dubai and while there is absolutely nothing in relation to food or entertainment that I could fault, it was non atmospheric. I walked away saying that I'd 'been there, done that' and I'll never go back again. This was the first brunch I left before the end. Simply bored, even though the band were... More

This brunch had absolutely everything you could possibly want to eat! We reserved a table at the terrace, which was a good choice, as although t was a little warm, inside looked a bit hectic with people coming in and out for the buffet. Our table was for 2 adults and 1 child. Because Friday Brunch is a big thing... More

This brunch is really special as the food display is really impressive and a little bit different to the normal brunch. There are so many areas and it is impossible to choose what to eat, so much so that we barely ate anything and just enjoyed the free flowing wines! Shout out to ranjeet the waiter, he is such a...

We went for a brunch as we had some visitors over for the week and chose Al Qasr as we've always been impressed by the food and atmosphere. We weren't let down! As always the place was full and there was a fantastic buzz and the food was great!!

With my family we tried the buffet at the Arboretum restaurant of Al Qasr. The restaurant is very nice and chic with a view of the Burj Al Arab. The Asian buffet theme was interesting . Loved the sashimi, and it was the first I tried the raw octopus! The mise en bouche was great. Service is there. Good place!!

Excellent food and service only criticism a bit overcrowded, there were 400 guests eating. Remember to have a table inside or in the shade its very hot.
