One of the reasons I stay at Le Meridien is the great breakfasts. Service is always fantastic, the coffee is great and there is such an excellent range of fresh food available.

This used to be a brunch where the drinks, vibe, music and after party were great but the food was mediocre. They've revamped it and now the food is now excellent too. One of the best brunches in Dubai The post brunch DJ and happy hour make a whole afternoon and evening of fun. Highly recommended

Lovely new decor and food mostly great though some teething problems that I am sure will be fixed. We had breakfast and Friday brunch. Breakfast was a bit confusing, you had to order eggs, waffles etc at the cooking stations and then they came separately, a while later, we weren't the only people eating strange combinations because there were no...

Fabulous, over the top, delicious, decadent. With several live cooking stations including dedicated oyster, cold and bbq lobster-crab-prawn, sushi, indian, asian and dessert chefs, happy to prepare whatever you want, however you want. A beautiful setting. Something to be sure to get on your to-do list.

Yalumba's is a brunch after in The Meridien Hotel near Dubai Int'l Airport where you pay a premium price (but great value overall) for the most exuberant afternoon you can wish for if you enjoy Champagne and spectacular food with music and great hospitality
