Best friday brunch.

We will be visiting Dubai as part of our honeymoon towards the end of October 2012 after getting engaged there in Feb.

We have decided to do the friday brunch this time but are having trouble deciding which to do.

We have narrowed it down to Al Qasr, Bubbilious or Spectrum on One. We had also considered Traituer but not sure about this as my fiance isn't a fan of French food. Which of these would you recommend for quality of food and drink?

Many Thanks.

1. Re: Best friday brunch.

Al Qasr is the most upmarket of the three you mention. It has great food, plenty of drinks and nice atmosphere. In October it will most certainly be busy and nice enough to sit outside.

Bubbilious is one of my favourite brunches when dining with a big group of friends. The drinks flow..and flow .. and flow... and by 4pm the place gets very messy, very rowdy and the attendees very very drunk. If it's just the two of you, then perhaps skip Bubbilious this time and save it for when you visit with a bunch of friends.

Al Qasr or Mina A Salim would be my choices for a couple.

Thanks for your help, we were leaning more towards the Al Qasr one anyway so think we will definitely book this now!

Have you been to this one? If so what is the dress code like as have read on another post that people tend to get very dressed up for brunch?

Some people do as they treat it as an occassion. Smart casual is fine but you can go a wee bit more dressy if you want

Al Qasr brunch is excellent and I thought their were less kids than Mina brunch, however I also think spectrum on one is fab too.

Thanks, i was thinking smart casual but then started to worry i would be underdressed! Good to know it will be fine.
