Sociale Saturday brings a warm slice of Italian flavour to Social at the Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah, a restaurant that continues to impress year after year. Settle in for a relaxing lunch with your nearest and dearest – think generous sharing platters, served family style, of wagyu charcuterie, fresh seafood, hearty meats that are full of flavour, and superbly sweet desserts. It's especially popular with families, so reserve a table early.

This is an all-day treat, so book in advance.
