I love brunches, they are the perfect way to celebrate with a group of friends or relax with your loved one. Best part? They are for people like me who don’t like waking up early on the weekends and can’t stay hungry until lunch.
Hungryoungwoman has curated a list of some of the best brunches in Dubai. These include buffets of course, but if you fancy set menus, send a request 🙂
Listed below are some restaurants in no particular order that have impeccable food and great value for money.
Spoiler: Of all the brunches in Dubai I’ve been to, this one’s my favorite!
A quick round of the buffet setup tells me 3 things:
- This is one HUGE buffet. I mean, it’s never-ending, and to try all the items displayed you’d easily need a whole day.
- The Chefs here are pretty talented. Apart from the cooking, they do things like juggling too. Oh, did I mention one of the Chefs is the DJ? 🙂
- This is the only brunch I’ve been to that has a counter dedicated to baby food. You have fun plus your baby which equals a happy day out for the family!

Pirates and Mermaids Family Brunch – Mazina, Address Dubai Marina

Just added to the list is the Anise Brunch Experience. Located in Intercontinental DFC, Anise has eight live stations that serve different cuisines. We walked around a Fish Souq where you can choose your fish and have it any way you like, the cold seafood station, and some highlights like chicken roulade in pistachio sauce that are not usually available in buffets.
The buffet here is probably one of the most underrated ones in Dubai. Priced at AED 240 per person for soft beverages (the most affordable one from the lot) | AED 385 per person including house beverages. Timings are from 1 – 4 PM on Fridays.
And lastly, the Friday Brunch at Palazzo Versace! You will be treated like royalty here!
