Description: 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.

“Something for all tastes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This all-round family buffet provides something for everyone. There is a wide choice; sushi, cold hors d'oeuvres and soup just for starters. There is a plethora of desserts, not too big, so you can taste many! Personally, I like the starters and the desserts and I fill up on these. I am not a big fan of hot buffet main courses. But that is personal choice, and there are lots to choose from ; curry, Chinese, meats, roast, plenty of vegetables etc. There is also a children's corner to satisfy the fads of fussy kids! Apart from the nightly buffet, this is also the best place for breakfast offering the widest choice.

“Great family buffet restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Situated in the Al Qsar hotel, this buffet style restaurant ffers something for everyone, including fussy eating children who just want to eat a pizza or pasta. The sushi is really good as is everything else. Great flavours and very high standard for a buffet style.

“Lots of food choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We were here during Ramadan so we had their nightly buffet and early morning breakfasts. The food choices were amazing. If you like typical Arab food, you will love it. We stayed at a neighboring hotel so free transportation was provided. We did need a reservation and the buffet was included in the room price at Dar al Masyaf. Our son who is 7 just loved the pizza and fries, which are not available during the traditional buffet meal. The desserts were also varied- even a chocolate fountain!
