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 had a brilliant brunch in Al Qasr on 13th February. The quality and choice of food / drinks were excellent. We had a fantastic table outside Arboretum which was really well placed in the middle of the 3 restaurants. Yes it might appear a bit pricey but it really is excellent value for money.

A must do when visiting Dubai. We visited on the 13th February, and were treated to the Valentine's brunch and I have to say it was truly a divine experience. The food was fresh and the stations were so diverse, we tried sushi to individual cakes and desserts to freshly cooked meat, tapas and a whole host more. The drinks... More

Dinner buffet with family. Seated on the beautiful terrace with Burj al Arab views. Excellent, efficient and unobtrusive service. Huge variety and above all tasty and high quality dishes. In a superior league as far as dinner buffets are concerned. Casual and relaxed atmosphere with a mix of families and couples of all nationalities and ages.
