Friday brunch is a weekend tradition for many expats and tourists who live in or vist Dubai. As a regular bruncher I have experienced many of the Hotels and enjoyed 90% of them. However I must say that my first brunch at The Palace was surprisingly better than I thought it would be.
The setting and ambience was always going to be good simply because of the high standard of the Hotel, but what made it extra special was the excellent service provided by the waiters and food servers and the sheer selection of food available.
Brunches are made or broken by the attitude and speed of the waiters; is service is slow it can be quite annoying, especially if you're paying a lot of money. No need to worry here. They were superb, speedy and polite. They deserved their tip at the end.
The food at brunches is always good but there were many different things to choose from that aren't usually offered at others I've been to. A quite fantastic seafood selection too.
Another difference was that the drinks included everything that was on their normal menu rather than selected beers which is the norm.
If you live in Dubai I recommend you try this one. Well worth the money at AED390 for a high end brunch.
