If by some bizarre fluke you were unaware of Yalumba’s reputation before booking, this brunch’s intentions become as crystal clear as a bubbly glass the minute you take a seat among the balloons, party hats and hooters that line the tables. This one’s a renowned party brunch. The small and cosy indoor restaurant is far from the most exotic venue in Dubai, but things are livened up by a cheese-tastic DJ, which can have punters on the dancefloor by 3pm on rowdier days. It’s better in winter months when the pleasant terrace becomes a bearable place to linger throughout the afternoon. Food-wise, there’s both an à la carte menu and a small buffet area, but it’s far from spectacular. The buffet itself is pretty miniscule and largely unappealing, and the à la carte options rarely stretch beyond adequate.
