Description: If variety is your thing, then look no further than Blue Orange, The Westin’s all day dining restaurant situated at the heart of the ground floor. With live cooking stations throughout, the chefs are there to cater your every need right before your eyes! Whether it’s the perfectly poached breakfast egg, or a delicious seafood supper; there’s something for everyone. Bright and airy, with stunning views out to our pools and the Arabian Gulf beyond, it’s the perfect spot for a quick bite, leisurely lunch or dinner. Our popular theme nights are a great way to mix it up from our Wednesday night Artisan Market where you can pick out your fresh produce for our chefs to cook right then and there, or stock up your home pantry at home; to our spectacular Thursday night seafood and lobster BBQ with fresh oysters and sashimi thrown into the mix, all prepared to perfection in front of you by our talented chefs. Our famous Bubbalicious brunch is the perfect way to kick off the weekend. Arguably one of Dubai’s most popular brunches, you can enjoy an extensive menu, flowing wine or bubbly and of course our amazing entertainment.

“Great breakfast buffet but beware the scary, thieving birds!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I work-out daily at the Mina/Westin and often choose to follow up a good workout with a trip to the breakfast buffet at Blue Orange. The atmosphere and food quality is very nice and a good value for what you get. I have also frequented there for lunch and dinner but breakfast is by far my favorite meal. My biggest complaint is that if you sit outside to enjoy the beautiful view, there are large black birds that will literally come and land on your plate and fly off with some of your food. On my last visit we were so harassed that we were forced to move inside so we could eat without the feeling of being under attack!

“Breakfast buffet”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We only used the breakfast buffet but found it to be one of the best. We always were up early and would have a long relaxing breakfast.

“Put this top of your to do list”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

OMG... You've never been here!!!
You are missing the eight ninth and tenth wonders of the world in one place !!!
Quite simply the most phenomenal brunch you could ever imagine.
We chose the Hunters area away from the package tourist idiots, calm civilised and exceptional service that is a Dubai trademark.
It's only fault is that it has to end!!

“Not as expected”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Outdoor location was superb, even in the bright (and rather hot) sunshine. Service was good with attentive pouring of Prosecco. Food stations were spread out and the queues were just too long to get what we wanted. All in all, rather disappointed. By opening up so many restuarant areas, simply too many people to make the occasion enjoyable. Food quality suffered as a result, especially fro fresh cooked food. One positive factor, Bombay Gin and British bottled (real) beer stations were a welcome and well used surprise. Tight restrictions on table timings disrupted relaxed atmosphere. Being "kicked out" towards the end of the service was unexpected and soured the experience. Westin should have done what the Marriott does, follow up Brunch with Happy Hour. Hang onto the clientele and allow them a full afternoon/evening at leisure !!!
