The whole city comes together over lavish quantities of incredible food and drink, from fine French feasts to Indian-inspired delights, here, we reveal the best brunches in Dubai.

Soak up the relaxed Spanish ambience over taps at Al Hambra, or settle in a glossy leather boothes and get a taste of uptown Manhattan (and prime Wagyu beef) at The Hide, a smart American steak house.
