We went to Easter Brunch and was really disappointed. It was too crowded and they really had a limited amount of food and variety. This brunch was totally not worth the price of 505AED per person. We should have went else where for cheaper and better food and quality. We will not be going back here! I Do not recommend.

Yes, well, by Dubai standards a little limited and hard to get a proper Barista style coffee, although we got there in the end. The buffet was OK, just missing key things like natural yoghurt, more raw nuts and berries and some of the mainstream healthy items. I managed to order eggs, and an omelette that was disappointing.

Although refreshing towels and juice found at counter but not offered! Food should have more varieties, and service should improve.

It was lovely as they have an outdoor area where you can enjoy nature while having your breakfast. They have a wide variety of food to choose from.
