We have attended the brunch at the Basilico Cove Rotana a number of times and have always enjoyed the experience!

Brunch is Fridays's from 12pm - 4pm includes a live band, that plays Latino favorites, if you have the opportunity to go, always opt to sit on the balcony which allows for breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf.

The food is a Mediterranean Buffet that has a beautiful pairing with a fine selection of international wines & spirits for the more discerning palate, the chef's have a few side dishes that accompany the buffet (but would need to be ordered from the table staff ranging from lamb, steak, pasta to burger and fries)

Service from the staff has always been on par, the team are prompt to clear the table and prompt to provide drinks and refreshments, Alma (manager) and her team will definitely take care of you while you are there.

This remains one of our families favorite spots in RAK to enjoy a wonderful brunch with a live band, good food & good service - definitely our small piece of the Spanish Riviera !

Not our first review of this fantastic restaurant - we come quite frequently here for good reason. Consistently the Number One place in RAK with best quality served with best hospitality. Chef Jay keeps surprising us with nice additions to the already wonderful menu. Chef Tarek and Chef Chedi - the full credit goes to you for building this team. Looking forward to our next visit!

Beautiful place for a Friday getaway with the best brunch concept I have ever tried, buffet + á la carte options including beverages makes for the perfect afternoon. Waiters are courteous and efficient. I cannot say anything about their dinner offers but will definitely try in the near future.
