There’s no better way to bring in the weekend than with a slow-moving spot of socialising accompanied by exceptional food and drink. Dubai is a city where brunch is an important part of the week; from traditional British comfort food to Riviera reinventions of the Med, these are some of the best Jumeirah brunches in Dubai.

Weekend Brunch at Kayto, Jumeirah Al Naseem

Brunch hours: Fridays and Saturdays from 12.30 to 3.30pm

There’s no place prettier to kickstart the weekend than this cool and classic rooftop restaurant at Jumeirah Al Naseem. Brunch here is an experience of exciting and innovative gastronomy; the Peruvian and Japanese fusion from Kayto’s Head Chef, Cristian Goya, has packed the à la carte brunch menu with plenty of unexpected treats. Take your pick from a selection of starters that include little wagyu beef tacos and rock shrimp tempura. For your main dish, sample signatures like the slow-cooked lamb shoulder or saikyo miso black cod, before finishing with a decadent dessert like the chocolate miso tart.

‘Bleu, Blanc, Rouge’ Brunch at French Riviera, Jumeirah Al Qasr

Elevate your weekend brunch with a trip to the Med at French Riviera. Jumeirah Al Qasr’s new luxury beachside pop-up is a glamorous culinary celebration of all things French. Soak up the classic Riviera vibes and explore the mix of traditional and modern flavours that have been expertly crafted by Chef Kim Joinié-Maurin. Seafood plays a starring role in the mains; the bouillabaisse and sole meunière are just a couple of the standout dishes. Save plenty of room for a wonderfully sweet-toothed finale, where delicious reinventions of classic dishes include a French toast crème brûlée and brown butter ice cream millefeuille.
