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.

We booked for dinner here and took an Abra from The Mina A Salem where we were staying.
Arriving by Abra and climbing the steps to the restaurant starts the evening well and feels very grand.
We were greeted warmly and the buffet was carefully explained to us prior to be shown to our seat. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Ramadan and we arrived just before the start of prayers so we waited for prayers to end before tucking into our Iftar meal starting with the dried fruit.
The buffet had an excellent range of interesting food to suit even the fussiest eaters. Everything was well presented and tasted delicious. The desserts were particularly interesting and I loved the special Arabic desserts and the wonderful ice-creams which included Baklava flavour and rose petal flavour.
The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and caters for all diets. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Very luxurious splurge! Glad we experienced this on our visit to Dubai. The variety of food and beverages was incredible and the quality was great! I loved that you can eat and enjoy for hours without feeling like you have to hurry.

The staff here were lovely and very friendly. They made us feel really welcome with our toddler daughter. The food was very nice, we were the first in at 6:30 but it started getting very busy. Clearly very popular
