Top Brunches to try in Dubai

Allianz Travel - Top brunches to try in Dubai

No trip to Dubai is complete without a visit to a famous Friday bunch event!

Dubai has put brunch firmly back in our lives, but, as with the rest of Dubai, it is not a quiet or simple affair. Expect anything from set menus to all you can eat, all you could ever imagine buffets, with bottomless drinks, DJs, singers and cabaret. This is an all afternoon event, of course.

Here are our top brunch options for you to try on your next visit.



If you ask anyone who has tried numerous brunches in Dubai where they recommend then you will certainly hear this name mentioned multiple times, and that is because the food here is exceptional.

Bubbalicious brings together all 3 of The Westin Hotel’s restaurants;

  1. Blue Orange provides the buffet and live cooking shows serving a range of foods including Belgian waffles, Arabic mezze and pasta.
  2. Spice Emporium brings the Asian food, including sushi, noodles and sashimi.
  3. Hunters Room delivers traditional grill food.

Not only can you get outstanding food at Bubbalicions, the entertainment is also second to none. There is a PlayStation room and a kid’s corner, as well as live acrobats and a petting zoo, because why not?


Miss Lily’s

Here at Miss Lily’s you will find a wonderful 5 hour Caribbean brunch between 12noon and 5pm. Throughout the day things will move into a party vibe. If this isn’t for you, ask for a table in the restaurant as it will be much more relaxed than in the bar area.

Food wise, the menu isn’t compromised from the regular restaurant just because it is brunch. Each guest can pick a starter, main, side and desert from the A La Carte menu.

You can find Miss Lily’s on the 5th Floor of the Sheraton Grand.


Saffron at Atlantis, The Palm

This brunch may be a little more skewed to the drinking rather than the eating, but fear not, there is still over 220 dishes on the buffet to choose from!

With a live DJ spinning the tunes, this is one brunch that tends to get a little lively! The brunch is between 12:30 and 4pm with an after party from 4pm to 9pm.


This is one for those looking for an experience over a relaxed lunch! At Play, the entertainment is fantastic which includes performers and singers. It doesn’t interrupt your dining experience either.

The food here is great too. It is delivered to the table in multiple little plates and can vary each time you visit.This is a brunch for those who like to dress up, with lots of beautiful people milling around.

Play is located in the H Hotel.
