Just some figures from the website: 48 hours of preparation, 130 chefs, 533 kgs of meat and seafood, 35 live cooking stations and over 280 dishes from an incredible array of cuisines from around the world. And everything is the truth. It is the best brunch I ever ate, you should come hungry. You go around three restaurants and choose... More

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.

Went here as a treat after hearing that the al qasr brunch was the best in Dubai. Whilst the service, ambience and setting were exceptional I felt a little underwhelmed by the food, in particular the seafood/sushi which seemed to be very bland. For the price paid I would suggest there are better alternatives

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

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.
