Elia brunch at Majestic Hotel Tower review. Contact details, hours, drinks deals for award-winning brunch, plus nearby restaurants and bars near Bur Dubai
Time Out Dubai staff
A comfortable, casual but stylish eatery with a chic, beachside vibe (impressive, considering the Bur Dubai location), decked out with white-washed tables and Mediterranean sea-blue soft furnishings. A set menu featuring a selection of classic Greek dishes is available for brunch. You can start off with salad, tzatziki and a filo-encased ‘pie of the day’, followed by gyros, a sharing plate of souvlaki and home-made chips, and rounded off with a dessert of the day (a compote and ice-cream topped rice pudding on our visit). Each dish is almost indecently tasty, and you’ll have to stop yourself ordering more of each course in order to save room for the next one. The only slight let-down is the souvlaki platter, which though tasty, features some unenjoyably fatty cuts of meat. Elia’s brunch is laidback, and as such draws groups who are in it for the authentic food and a leisurely lunch rather than a raucous party. In the same hotel, you’ll find Breathers bar and Barrels pub, so if you fancy carrying on, there’s no need to leave the property. Dhs300 (house beverages). Fri noon-3pm. Majestic Hotel Tower, Mankhool Road, Bur Dubai (050 168 8389).
