Visited this place three times for dinner over a period of a 12 day break in Dubai. I must say the the quality of food is great but there was not much variety, however a good selection of deserts were available. There was a small activity area for kids which was good to keep the little one occupied. Good experience... More

Sadly, it's gone downhill. Al Qasr has always been a bit too big but 600 dirhams for a normal brunch package and to constantly have to battle with queues, busy kitchens, long walks for food that's been left out for an hour etc. It's just not worth the money. Lots of the best brunches now are served or smaller and... More

We have been to Al Qasr Brunch many times before, the last of which was December 2016. Very sorry to say that the quality of food has gone way south. They used to have a fois gras station which has disappeared and instead you can go into one of the restaurant's kitchens (yes the actual kitchen) to get a very... More

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.
