Aside from the stunning architecture and interior, this restaurant offers an international buffet serving salads, hot and cold carbs, protein, fruit, desserts, cheese, breads and ice cream. I wanted to select the pan fried salmon but queried gluten content and the chef insisted he cook some salmon especially for me in case of cross contamination. Wonderful service and very good...

The themed nights are particularly good. The roast night on Sundah evenings is a must. The staff are attentive and extremely pleasant. The chefs are always available and only too happy to... More

Been to this place several times and came recently with a guest, it never disappoints! This time we tried the Friday brunch and we couldn't have picked a better choice to spend our Friday! It was the biggest buffet spread that I have ever been in and we were really spoilt for choice. Everything we had tasted really good, customer... More

Had my parents over from Ireland, brought them and my 6mth old daughter to brunch and the experience was amazing! The music was a little too loud with several tables around us complaining as well but apart from that this place is amazing and brilliant for photo opportunities!!

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.
