The quality and range of food provided was simply outstanding. The buffet offers so much choice that it caters for every taste imaginable. The service is also without equal. A truly tremendous culinary experience.

We visited the restaurant for dinner. The place is amazing, beautifully decorated. There was a dinner buffet which had a lot of options from Arabic, European,Japanese and Indian food. The staff was efficient and professional. Even we didn't have a booking we could walk in and have delicious food. The dessert selections was just a enough. Plenty of different choices... More

we visited Arboretum for breakfast, Lunch, Brunch and the evening Buffet. Qe have never been disappointed. Variations, the magnitude and the quality. Normally we try to avoid typical hotel restaurants and buffet settings. But thats hard with Arboretum. Recommended for couples, groups and with children. We tried all settings.

On a recent visit to Dubai we visited here for the Friday Brunch. The food was amazing and everything you could imagine to eat. There was fizz being continually topped up with plenty of other drink stations through out to sample. Well worth a visit .

They have very good buffet options with all Arabic, Japanese, continental options. Choices of Indian curries are also available. The Sushi is very tasty. Some of the evenings, it is theme based.

Ate here our first night but nothing to get too excited about. Food was fine but staff not as friendly as in other restaurants.

For us Arboretum is a great family dinner buffet restaurant. The place is nice, our daughters love going there as they feel it's a special restaurant. We usually come here with the grandparents. The food is great although the sushi choice is limited and somewhat blend. The deserts are a favourite of my family. I like their Arabic selection of... More

Just some figures from the website: 48 hours of preparation, 130 chefs, 533 kgs of meat and seafood, 35 live cooking stations and over 280 dishes from an incredible array of cuisines from around the world. And everything is the truth. It is the best brunch I ever ate, you should come hungry. You go around three restaurants and choose... More

Part of the famous Grand Friday Brunch at Jumeirah Al Qasr, recently awarded Ahlan's Best Brunch in Dubai, not only is the Arboretum at Madinat Jumeirah something of an ambassador for Arabian dining culture and cuisine, but it's also a hub of great international food. Sumptuous all-day dining takes place in a light, airy and spacious environment. You can dine alfresco on our wide terrace - bordering the busy waterway and with spectacular views of the sea - or inside, under the ornate and cavernous ceiling with its iconic palm columns.
