We sat in the garden and were very impressed with the guitarist singer outside. Really captured the mood well. The staff were so helpful especially our waiter Alliston.... More

I attended an evening brunch here with several friends and it was quite a good time. Great selection of food, drinks were refilled quickly and the desserts were delicious! The group next to us got quite rowdy with one guest even throwing things around after too many drinks but the staff did their best to intercept him. The only downside... More

Booked the Friday brunch for a birthday celebration and then found out it was Christmas themed. Made for a great atmosphere. Crackers on the table, christmas tunes and a fantastic roast turkey. Santa even made an appearance. I have done this brunch several times as it is good value for money (especially with entertainer voucher) great for big groups and... More

We came without a reservation, but I advise to have one as the place is busy. From the entrance to the end we had amazing service. We actually had to be fast cause we had another place to go, but Dj Jason Kabuki was just to good and we instead decided to stay and enjoy their amazing food, beverages options... More

We were a table of 18. Everyone single person was impressed with the night brunch. The food was exceptional, considering they had already catered for a day brunch. The music and atmosphere were excellent. I can highly recommend it.

On one hand this place rocks the Friday brunch, but our last visit on Thursday night was a disaster. We had a group booking of 12 for their evening brunch special. Decent spread of starters but with an open A la cart with very limiting options. Many of us ordered the steak however, this was definitely a mistake. A below-average... More

Atmosphere was great, music was good not too loud, karaoke started at 3pm but way too loud! Food was really poor for an afternoon Friday brunch. Evening brunch way better. 241 with entertainer!

Description
With an emphasis on market fresh ingredients served simply, The MED at Media One Hotel is a modern yet relaxed Mediterranean restaurant, with an outdoor terrace in the heart of Dubai Media City, with stunning views over the city and Palm Jumeirah. Our eclectic menu is characterised by dishes such as oven-baked pizza, satisfying pasta and the freshest seafood cooked a la minute, all beautifully presented.

Diners can choose from a la carte dining or from a series of fabulous events that capture and ignite the senses; as food, drink and friends take centre stage. At the weekend look out for the lively brunches on Friday and Saturday! The MED ...Surprising, intriguing, fun
