Luxury at Spectrum On One
The Friday brunch has long been a tradition in the United Arab Emirates, but the 5-star Fairmont Dubai hotel was the first to promote the idea of celebrating this Friday feast outside of the home. Today, the Friday brunch at restaurant Spectrum on One is still considered one of the best in Dubai. The lavish buffet consists of sushi and sashimi, crispy Peking duck, crab, lobster and oysters amongst other things and guests can choose from 4 accompanying drinks offerings, ranging from non-alcoholic beverages to unlimited pink champagne.
Scrumptious brunch dessert at Al Qasr
The largest: Madinat Jumeirah
Everyone who enters the Madinat Jumeirah for Friday brunch receives a map. This might seem a bit peculiar, but really isn’t when considering that − with its 800 place settings − the brunch takes up the entire ground floor of the Al Qasr, one of the 4 hotels in the complex. The maze-like buffet is divided over 3 restaurants and 37 cooking stations, ranging from Wagyu burgers at the barbecue station to grilled red snapper at the fish station or delicious foie gras prepared by a French chef. The price ranges from 90 euros (non-alcoholic beverages) to 110 euros (includes cocktails, wine and champagne).

7-star brunch: Burj Al Arab

The restaurant of the only ‘7-star hotel’ in the world sits 200 metres above the Persian Gulf and offers spectacular views of the sparkling skyline, the Palm islands and the future World islands. Listen to live jazz music while you enjoy a diverse and delicious buffet of fresh fruit, salads, sushi and sashimi, caviar with blini and a huge variety of local pastries and desserts. Prices start at approximately 100 euros p.p.
