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

We did the Saturday brunch and it was much less glamorous than many other equivalent priced brunches. I don't know if its just Saturday but only the dessert and salad was buffet, the rest was ordered off the menu which felt like a bit of a let down. It was all you can drink wine and beer and they were decent quality. The view is lovely and the service was great.

Ate here twice on my recent visit. Both times very good. Not a vast choice but enjoyed all my courses.

Hi,

The variety now is much different and the offer is richer and more interesting for your taste buds. Brunch is just an experience out of this world. We do hope to see you again.

I have been there with my family on 30Dec, and the local Arab food is absolutely delicious. Prices are fair, and the service also very good. My daughter asked to replace cheese by chicken on a risotto, and surprisingly the chef not only accepted, but it was delicious. My meat skewer was absolutely fantastic, and all portions were very generous. The only remark is that you should not expect to have panoramic views of the city, as the restaurant is located on the 08th floor in a building with 19 floors.

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,
