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.

This was a nice place. Nothing spectacular,atmosphere very quiet and calm. The buffet was good and the hotel is exceptional. I think the hotel and brand really make up for the restaurant.

Breakfast and evening buffet here comprised of excellent food but the restaurant feels much too big for us. Additionally the noise levels are high, why I am not sure, but this added to my deducting a star from the rating.

My family and I stayed at the Madinat Jumeirah resort for a week in June and had breakfast in Aboretum every morning. This is our 5th visit to the resort, they must be doing something very right as we keep coming back! My brother is lactose intolerant and the staff looked after his dietary needs very well so he never... More

We chose this restaurant in a hotel we frequent regularly. The restaurant is on the ground floor and it a beautiful space with the Middle Eastern architecture surrounding the venue. Service is impeccable from the time we arrived to the last bite. The biggest disappointment is on the food side. While there are a well prepared dishes, there is a... More

Really enjoyed breakfast and lunch here. Fantastic selection of food and everyone really helpful. The outside seating area was lovely but a little too hot to seat there.

The Al Qasr brunch is an institution, and for good reason. More great quality dishes than you'll be able to sample and a large variety of cocktails. We chose the free flowing Moët and Chandon option and weren't disappointed. I especially liked the cured meat election, (juicy Jamon imported from Spain too) and the largest selection of fine cheeses I... More

We have been to the Al qasr brunch twice now, once last year 2014 and again in 2015. It was still good this year but one of the restaurants was closed so there was definitely some things missing and things felt a little crammed. My advice would be check and make sure all parts of the brunch will be available... More
