I ate here with a colleague after a late work night, we had some starters and main courses. The portions are a little small so you may leave feeling that the value for money is simply not there, however the food is well prepared, tasty and fresh. I ordered the seafood platter and the waiter recommended spinach with the dish,... More

Great classy brunch that has two menus to choose from. Perfect atmosphere for friends and young children were also in attendance. The restaurant was a bit loud, but the food and service were excellent.

I love this restaurant!! The service is great and the food and drinks are amazing, nice cosy atmosphere whilst feeling spoilt at the same time. The duck salad for me is a highlight, plus the goose fat chips are a must with steak!

Then we had the banana sticky toffee pudding, a new favorite! The location is great and the setting of the restaurant is quite simple but warm and elegant. I'd... More

I love the Ivy I go to it in London all the time but I thought to try it here in Dubai and was shocked they have pork!! I'm sorry dubai is a Muslim country and they shouldn't serve pork! I won't ever go again for that reason

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our brunch! It is great to get a guest's perspective on service and ways in which we can improve our offer generally.
