We celebrated my husbands birthday at Arboretum! Once again it was an outstanding and amazing brunch experience. Regarding the quality of food, drinks and service is the Al Qasr Brunch the best one in Dubai. We'll be back very soon.

Great choice of everything for any time of day, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Breakfast is best used as part of a room food package.

Decided to take a friend here for Friday brunch as it was her first time in Dubai. Chose Al Qasar because of the grandeur. Passing the golden horses as we drove in certainly set the scene; as did the photos taken on the balcony with the Burj Al Arab as the background. We had booked outside and not knowing how... More

The brunch at madinat is one of a kind! We did the grand friday brunch and were seated inside the arboretum. Due to late reservations, this was the only table available at the time. Didnt bother to check for another table once we get there, because you have to walk in different directions to feast off the many buffets. So... More

Forget the fact that it is set in one of the most incredible hotels in the world, on merit of the food alone this place is an absolute must. The sheer quantity of food available is stunning, with live stations for Indian, Arabic, Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Spanish amongst many more... It has around four different dessert areas, unlimited coconuts, mojitos,... More

I have lived and worked in Dubai for 5 years now. Brunches are an institution. A Dubai brunch is not like the brunch you get elsewhere in the world. its basically, 4-5 hours, hardcore eating, drinking and merrymaking. The venues dictate the atmosphere. You can choose a lounge/chilled out brunch, a family fun one, or the partying scene. In the... More

Description
Part of the famous Grand Friday Brunch at Jumeirah Al Qasr, recently awarded Ahlan's Best Brunch in Dubai, not only is the Arboretum at Madinat Jumeirah something of an ambassador for Arabian dining culture and cuisine, but it's also a hub of great international food. Sumptuous all-day dining takes place in a light, airy and spacious environment. You can dine alfresco on our wide terrace - bordering the busy waterway and with spectacular views of the sea - or inside, under the ornate and cavernous ceiling with its iconic palm columns.
