We live in Dubai and used to go to Arboretum quite often for lunch / brunch on weekends. Nowadays we do not do that as often as we'd want to but every time we are there, it's a real treat - everything from food to service. We went last week for Iftar and once again Arboretum did not fail us... More

We visited Arboretum on the Jumeirah Summer Flavours offer. The food was good, but not as impressive as some of the other restaurants we dined in during our trip. The restaurant itself is very nice, but we were disappointed with the service we received. A waiter approached our table while I was still eating my main course to ask us... More

Just back from Dubai and encountered many amazing culinary delights but..........the Iftar buffet was a highlight; the selection, surroundings, ambience/culture, quality, presentation and execution in cooking made for a lovely experience. We all (including our two young girls 10 & 14) loved the food. The desserts were something of true mastery, two of which featured spherification.......in a buffet !. Everything... More
