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.

“Charming place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I went with my husband on our anniversary to dine at the Arboretum restaurant at Al Qasr hotel. The hotel is so fancy and luxurious ( arabian modern style) , we had a table outside at the terrace where the scene is charming and so beautiful over looking the pool area and the beach. It was a brunch buffet not dinner, not quite a variety , but we were taken by the beautiful environment and site that we didnt give food much interest. A complimentry cake was Served to us for the occasion, nice gesture. Maybe next time we will try the restaurent near the pool it looks marvelous. I do recommend this place not for its food but for its charm.

“The best lebanese food I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

This was just one great experience.
We were welcomed very warmly by the restaurant manager, which offered us a table with a good view to the stage - even though we didn't book much in advance and the place was packed!
That night, they had a set menu. I don't remember having eaten that well... ever! My memory may be short and you can't compare apples with oranges, but it was definitely extremely delicious and very rich. I have been in what I had been told the best lebanese restaurant in Beirut - the food at Al Qasr was definitely much better.

At a certain point, a band started playing and a little bit later, an oriental dancer came on stage. Perfect performance, she was an outstanding dancer and the musicians were really good, too.

Long story short, my colleagues nearly had to drag me out by force as I didn't want to leave.

A special thanks to the Restaurant Manager, who was extremely nice throughout the whole evening!
