With a wide range of menus, cuisines and settings, Dubai has a brunch to suit every palate.



There’s a reason that Bubbalicious at The Westin sells out Friday after Friday. This extraordinary global feast combines the culinary forces of three of the hotel's best restaurants – Baba, Mina's Kitchen and Sui Mui – to create a multi-room offering. Take your time as there are 10 live cooking stations to explore, with everything from perfectly-grilled steaks to Asian stir-fry, roasts, seafood and more. Come hungry.



Great food, creative drinks and fantastic music, 'The Warehouse Brunch' is one of the city's hottest Friday brunches. It kickstarts your weekend celebrations with live dancers and acrobatic acts as guests enjoy a sumptuous buffet-style meal. You can expect live hot wok stations, a roast counter, chilled seafood selections, a fiery barbecue and a dedicated dessert bar. While the brunch ends at 4pm, the restaurant transforms into a lively lounge for those looking to carry on with the festivities.



Traiteur's weekend brunch offers exquisite cuisine with a vibrant ambience and unbeatable al fresco dining experience. It's spread across the pretty French restaurant Brasserie du Park and Cape Cod-inspired NOÉPE eatery. Highlights include the seafood on ice – think fresh oysters, crabs legs, lobster, scallops and caviar – which perfectly sets the tone for the many delicacies to come. This is a brunch that will satisfy all gourmands.


Fogo de Chão

Meat lovers can relish a delicious weekend brunch at this Brazilian chain in Downtown Dubai. The signature churrasco experience includes unlimited premium cuts of meat carved directly at your table. You can select from six different cuts of beef, marinated chicken, mixed sausages, seasoned lamb, seafood and even brown sugar-glazed pineapple. Cooked in the traditional gaucho style over sizzling flames, this feast also delivers high-energy entertainment. It's an action-packed start to your weekend. 



A firm favourite with Dubai's fashionistas, The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill is home to one of the city's more atypical Friday brunches. The brunch menu is served à la carte with special dishes such as chicken n' waffles, billionaire French toast with foie gras, fried oyster omelette, as well as few of the restaurant favourites. The kitchen also excels in other seafood, with the fish tacos alone definitely worth the trip. With seating arranged on the terrace and lawns, the setting is chic and breezy – much like the food itself.


Get ready for an exclusive gastronomic journey with Nobu. Every Friday, this unique experience brings together a selection of signature dishes, including the melt-in-the-mouth black cod miso, superb chicken and avocado tacos, and popular yellow tail sashimi with jalapeno. The service here really is exemplary, ensuring that everyone has a good time. Save room for dessert so you can enjoy the famed mochi ice cream and Nobu cheesecake.


La Carnita

A popular destination for the city's cool crowd, this Mexican restaurant serves a great Friday brunch, complete with lively entertainment. With something to satisfy everyone – from vegans to meat lovers – you can choose starters such as spicy grilled chicken with pineapple, chorizo with habanero mayo, crispy cauliflower tacos and more. Then, take your pick from four mains, whether it is chicken, lamb, sea bass or a mushroom quesadilla. The dessert spread includes some favourites such as key lime pie ice cream, frozen Oreo ice cream covered in biscuit crumbs and other moreish treats.
