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.

Arrived at 1pm on a packed Easter Friday. Initially given a table in front of the cuba libre bar by the walkway into the inside buffet area. This table should not be made available for paying guests. Rory managed to sort us out with a lovely table which we were very happy with. The afternoon was absolutely amazing. The quality... More

Friday Brunch is an experience not to be missed in Dubai: amazing food from around the world with a variety of beverages available. For four hours you can eat as much as you are able and while away the time listening to live music. We were travelling as a family, however, there were some couples having a romantic time together...

Brunch is as good as all the reviews says - the only thing missing is more time - we spend almost 4 hours there and it was not enough we did not manage to sample all the various stations (there is no way a normal person could eat that much either :)). The food was exquisite and the variations and... More

Excellent lunch. Promotion: -20% when you pay with Master Card. Bottled water too pricy: 39 AD for a 750ml. But is from Italy (who cares, I needed only water)

Visited in August 2014 This is one of my favourite Buffet restaurants in Dubai. The food is a very high standard and the choice will please everyone's palate. The staff are excellent and a special thanks to Pintu for his extra ordinary customer service. He would always try his hardest to please and thanks for getting the Parathas well appreciated.

the brunch here was recommended to us by many of our friends who live in Dubai as one of the must do things. The place lived up to all our expectations. The food was superb for a buffet and always being replenished. It was so hard to know where to start but I decided on the seafood and sushi and... More

We visited the Al Qasr Brunch during Easter weekend, nearly all tables were full but this did not effect the service. Despite our table being in a tiny corner beside the door even though we requested on the terrace with Burj Al arab view we had a brilliant afternoon and were overwhelmed with the amount of food and drink on...
