With a wide range of menus and cuisines, Dubai's best brunches suit every palate.



Winner of the best brunch category under Time Out Dubai's Restaurant Awards 2021, Traiteur serves up 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 at Park Hyatt Dubai. 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 weekend indulgence that will satisfy all gourmands.



COYA is one of the city's most exciting dining venues, and the home of one the best brunches in Dubai, with exotic Latin American flavours and a happening atmosphere. The award-winning Peruvian restaurant is stoking the fiesta flames again with an all-new brunch that's set to make Fridays an absolute stunner. A fully seated experience, guests can relax as they wait for tantalising starters and dishes like arroz nikkei, beef short ribs and patatas bravas to be brought to them. Have any brunch-time requests? The team will be waiting patiently to serve you!


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 many live cooking stations to explore, with everything from perfectly-grilled steaks to Asian stir-fry, roasts, seafood and more. Come hungry.


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 and Saturday brunches, and one of the best brunches in Dubai. The Oh My Grill! menu features freshly-shucked oysters, starters like Wagyu beef tataki and hamachi ceviche, and a choice of any two grills from a selection of eight, with tempting options such as herb-crusted lamb chops and lobster tail. 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 ambience 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, seabass 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.



If you’re searching for East Asian cuisine in a luxury setting, you’ll think you’ve struck gold at this spot, with one of the best brunches in Dubai. Situated atop the 24th floor at Dusit Thani Dubai, Benjarong combines an authentic, award-winning Thai experience with striking urban panoramas. Brunch is a shining weekly staple, delighting diners with everything from the traditional a la carte menu packed with irresistible treats to the next door 24th St. World Street Food spread, which dazzles with heaps more specialities and vivacious live cooking stations.
