This has to be on my top 10 places to eat in Dubai. We ate dinner here a few times while staying at Mina A'Salaam. The choice of food & different stations is huge.

Having stayed for 10 days and went to the Ivy for our first brunch, we decided to try brunch in the Al Qasr. It did not disappoint! Lots of food to choose from, wine served to the table and constantly filled, cocktail stations, a live band...the list is endless. Well worth it. Would recommend very highly.

Description
Part of the famous Grand Friday Brunch at Jumeirah Al Qasr, recently awarded Ahlan's Best Brunch in Dubai, 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.
