I have been here six times for Friday brunch and they have never failed me yet! The food is ahuge range from China, India, Arabian, Japan, Spanish,French , Thai, all the way to a good old English roast, and the seafood has everything from lobster to oysters.
The quality is some of the best I have had and I have eaten around the world in many fantastic places.
Brunch is set out here cleverly and is all displayed beautifully, with extraordinarily helpful staff to cater to your every whim.
I have taken my 11 year old son there every time I have been, he absolutely loves it, particularly the smoked Salmon ( melts in the mouth) and the Chocolate Fountain, though I haven't seen alot of children there, they are well looked after.
We spent Christmas Day last year, what a hassle free way to 'do Christmas' ;-)
It has to have a highly recommended from me

We had dinner at Noire at Spectrum on One and what an experience we had.

We were with a group of people and everyone was a little nervous before we entered the restaurant as to what they were going to be given by the chef as meals, but after the event everyone was full of praise and amazed. There was one in the group who did not eat the food as he was too afraid, but I can say that it was his loss.

There is a starter, main and a desert. During the meal you also get house white or red wine with your meal. Yes it is total darkness, Yes they guide you and sit you down one by one and I am normally claustrophobic, but was fine in the dark. It is just like a power failure with no moon, so if you have experienced one of these, then you will be fine. I would believe the concern of what you will be given is more of a fear than the darkness. The chef prepares great meals! So do not be concerned and afterwards you get to see what you were eating.

REMEMBER the waiters can see everything clearly, so no "funny business". you only realize how good their night vision is after the meal as they give you an opportunity to try the night vision.

I do not think it is so pricey at 325AED for a 3 course meal with paired wine, but again it is an experience and 10% of the takings goes to Sightsavers which is a good cause. So this is an experience I would recommend

Dear Eric R,

Thank you very much this fantastic review. We are delighted to hear that you tried Noire and that you loved it. As you said, Noire is a culinary experience that challenges and enhances your senses in different ways; everything is thrown out of balance at Noire with textures, smells, flavour combinations and even sounds taking precedence.

Do not hesitate to contact our Food & Beverage Concierge on dbi.fbconcierge@fairmont.com to assist you in your booking.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Kind regards,

Located on the 1st floor of the Fairmont Hotel this Restaurant offers a very attractive variety of dishes around the world : Chinese, Thai, Indian, and European. All prepared with an open kitchen interesting to watch. Very friendly service, nice choice of wines. Food served was simply good, not a single remark to make.

On my recent visit back to Dubai,as i had tried this brunch before i was keen too return.
I was not disappointed ! Very attentive,polite staff with an excellent manor.We were even invited to an open air bar on another floor for another glass of champagne before the brunch finished.This Friday brunch attracts a stylish sophisticated crowd.
Top end brunch!
