We had breakfast here whilst staying in the hotel and found the quality and choice of the food on offer exceptional. There was a very mixed clientele but all were catered for and there were ample staff on hand to cope. The staff were delightful and helpful.

The Arboretum is a whirlwind of a dining experience. The food is a mixture of cuisines and beautifully prepared and full of flavour. The only down side is that it all seems to be in a rush. No sooner have you finished your course, your plate is taken away, before your partner has finished theirs. You could have three courses... More

We went to Arboretum for the buffet, my girl friend and I, and we were both blown away by the huge selection of food they had. The price per person is quite high but it is so worth every Dirham you spend. Not only can you find specialties from any world cuisine, there's also a wide selection of all-you-can-drink alcoholic...

Part of Al Qasr Hotel offering great views of the Medinant Jumeriah and the Burj Al Arab. It also offers good views of the stream and the sea. Food variety and taste was also good. Service and ambiance was also great.

Visited this place three times for dinner over a period of a 12 day break in Dubai. I must say the the quality of food is great but there was not much variety, however a good selection of deserts were available. There was a small activity area for kids which was good to keep the little one occupied. Good experience... More

Sadly, it's gone downhill. Al Qasr has always been a bit too big but 600 dirhams for a normal brunch package and to constantly have to battle with queues, busy kitchens, long walks for food that's been left out for an hour etc. It's just not worth the money. Lots of the best brunches now are served or smaller and... 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.
