Description: With an emphasis on market fresh ingredients served simply, The MED at Media One Hotel is a modern yet relaxed Mediterranean restaurant, with an outdoor terrace in the heart of Dubai Media City, with stunning views over the city and Palm Jumeirah. Our eclectic menu is characterised by dishes such as oven-baked pizza, satisfying pasta and the freshest seafood cooked a la minute, all beautifully presented. During the day The MED is a popular choice for lunchtime diners looking for quality food at reasonable prices, while the evening draws those looking for a more intimate dinner. Diners can choose from a la carte dining or from a series of fabulous events that capture and ignite the senses; as food, drink and friends take centre stage. At the weekend look out for the lively brunches on Friday and Saturday! The MED ...Surprising, intriguing, fun

Friday brunch has great food, great views, lots of drink & a much better but party atmosphere than a lot.
Few glasses of champagne in the lobby are a nice touch

have been twice and will go again.

Hi Daily,

We keep our Friday brunch still on the highest possible "deliciousness" level. We would love to see you again if you visit Media One and we'll make sure it's the same amazing experience.

Thanks,

Svet

There's not a great deal I can say about Media One. It's a new hotel and we thought we'd try it out for a meal.

The place itself is a cross between a hospital and a shopping mall cresh. Decor is aweful, the whole place is bright gloss white! There's a bit of a bar/club as you first walk in which is far too loud and full of scruffy youths, not the young professionals you'll find in nicer hotels. The clientel are what you'd expect in a Yate's bar on a Friday night in Wales.

Staff are like zombies and are more interested in how their hair looks than what your service is like. The hotel has these aweful tag lines like 'Hip, Groovey, Trendy' etc, pure cheese and just embarrassing Staff walk around in ripped jeans etc. It's not great.

Food was average at best, service was dreadful and we were over charged but this fell on deaf ears as the staff were very confrontational and not intereested in resolving the issue correctly. Totally over priced for the poor quality food and to top it off we both vomitted that night. Thats the first time I can remember in years.

Awful experience. Never again.

Hi,

We love to come back to our first reviews and try to address them. It's an unfortunate situation that you experienced and we've grown a lot - the complete package - food, ambiance, and service. Everything is much improved. Trendy, stylish and vibrant atmosphere is still present and we are sure that you'll be having an amazing time 4 years after your first review.

Let's do it again. Thank you for your honest opinion.
