“Superb Brunch”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Located close to Dubai Airport, Yalumba at Le Meridien offer's a superb brunch, with food aplenty and free flowing champagne - not the cheap stuff either! It is always full so best to book in advance, the crowd can get a bit rowdy but hey, once in a while why not!! Not cheap but worth it.

“Best Brunch in Dubai”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I recently held my 30th birthday party at Yalumba.

Although the brunch is expensive, the service is amazing, as is the food. I have been to all the main brunches in Dubai, and this one stands out. Most other hotels charge 350 to 450 aed and are EXTREMELY slow at serving drinks - Yalbumba has a good balance of staff per table, making sure glasses are constantly topped up.

My friend was late and arrived at the brunch with only an hour to spare before the finish - She wasnt drinking because she was driving. I would like to thank the Manager for allowing her for stay and enjoy the food and waving the heavy 499 price.

“Worth a try, even for the price.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Food selection and champagne are fantastic. My glass was never empty and had plenty of very high quality food to eat. Good selection of wine and spirits on offer as well.
Waiting staff were friendly and atmosphere was good.

The only problem that I had was that the ;layout of tables and the party hats etc on the tables. Made what should have been a very classy venue and space, seem a little tacky.

Would go again & would recommend, even with the hefty price tag

“Great Food and well priced”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Sampled a buffet asian meal which was one of the best that I have had. Great choice and the service of the staff was brillant especially the Head of staff on the floor who solved a minor problem the way it should be.

Nothign was too much trouble for both him and his staff and they made for a very enjoyable and well priced meal.
