You haven't 'done brunch' until you've been to one of these top spots in Dubai that quite frankly, everyresident of the emirate should have triedat some point. Someare known for providing an awesome party, others are great to attend with the family, or just so posh you have to treat yourself to the experience at least on a special occasion. Either way, these are the talking point brunches of Dubai.
This Friday event is a huge sprawl of different buffet stations, set across the entire ground floor space of the hotel. There is an international mix of food to try, including plenty of fresh seafood and the biggest cheese selection you have probably ever seen. There is also a secret science lab, featuring items such as liquid nitrogen frozen meringue and short drinks in syringes. Dhs450 (soft drinks), Dhs550 (house beverages), Dhs650 (bubbly), Dhs190 (children aged six to 12), free for children under six. Fri 1pm-4pm. The Westin Dubai (04 399 4141).
Arguably Dubai’s most notorious party brunch, Saffron is never short of sprawling groups of revellers celebrating special occasions. As such, alongside the international selection of food on offer, you’ll also find beverages in just about any guise you can imagine – frozen like a slushy, in a pipette, in a pineapple, in a watermelon… you name it. If you are still feeling creative, you can also try your hand at painting on the terrace. Dhs495 (selected house beverages). Fri 12.30pm-4pm. Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 426 2626).
Arguably the oldest among (what is now a spree of) Latin brunches in Dubai, Toro Toro’s ‘Hola Hola’ brunch is still one of the best for a sophisticated food experience. What you’ll get here is a menu devised by chef Richard Sandoval, which includes meat from the churrasco grill and signature dishes such as ceviche, yucca fries and guacamole. Dhs350 (soft drinks), Dhs500 (selected house beverages). Fri 12.30pm-4pm. Grosvenor House, Tower 2, Dubai Marina (04 317 6000).
Winner in the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards Best Brunch category for two years in a row, this is the must-try brunch for foodies who want to splash out on the finer things. Here, in the cooler months, you’ll get a gorgeous terrace setting by the Creek, and the rest of the year you can always dig in to the French selection of fine food, as well as a raw bar set up inside The Terrace, and a roast station. Dhs485 (soft drinks), Dhs680 (sparkling grape), Dhs750 (bubbly), Dhs242 (children aged six-12). Fri 12.30pm-4pm. Park Hyatt Dubai, Deira (04 317 2222)
The Friday affair at Yalumba has a much classier tone than its cousin Warehouse, and yet both manage to strike a similar tone of all out party. Here, at the Australian-themed restaurant, you’ll be served premium French bubbly, alongside a buffet and an à la carte selection. Dhs499 per person (bubbly). Fri 12.30pm-3.30pm. Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Garhoud (04 217 0000).
