Al fresco brunches galore – competition by Palazzo Versace Dubai

Palazzo Versace Dubai - Dubai brunches - FooDivaIs there any such thing as one to many brunches in Dubai?! I doubt it here. Well, we’re continuing our brunch competition theme by giving away some tasty and bubbly prizes from Palazzo Versace Dubai.

With the weather at its optimum now, brunching should be al fresco, in my opinion – and even better, include pool access! Which is exactly what we’re offering here on FooDiva with two brunch deals – each for four people.

Firstly, the Friday brunch at the jungle-inspired Giardino restaurant extends onto the terrace. The lavish buffet and live cooking stations serve up dishes such as 24-hour spice-marinated lamb chops and smoked sea bass. Best bit is, the free-flow Champagne of choice is premium Ruinart Brut – life doesn’t get much better than that. This brunch deal is priced at AED650 per person.

Alternatively, the Saturday Arabesque brunch in Giardino offers a Middle Eastern-themed buffet experience with mezzes and salads, complemented by churrascaria-style carving stations and hand-crafted mocktails to the tunes of Arabic lounge music. Priced at AED285 per person.

We have a couple of generous prizes up for grabs for FooDiva readers across the UAE:

  1. The Friday brunch at Giardino inclusive of Ruinart Champagne and pool access for four people.
  2. The Saturday Arabesque brunch inclusive of soft beverages and pool access for four people.

    My favorite food on every brunch comes from the oyster bar! Few fresh oysters, topped with vinegar and chives and accompanied with a glass of bubbly- that`s what Dubai brunch is all about x

  2. Rachel October 26, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Short ribs from the Rib Room Friday Brunch! Yum!

  3. Jennifer October 26, 2016 at 12:31 pm

    My favorite brunch is always the live Asian cooking station at Westin Habtoor and Westin mina siyahi with or without a bubbly or two.

    Cheese and desserts at Traiteur! YUm

  6. Bernard October 26, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    My favorite brunch dish is the lobster salad at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel brunch…best value brunch in Dubai!

  7. Razena October 26, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    My favorite brunch items have got to be the seafood bar at Mezzerie at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah.

  8. Laura October 26, 2016 at 2:49 pm

    My favorite brunch dishes are be Sushi and Lobster as you can eat as much as you want. If you would have these dishes à la carte it’s somewhat pricey

  9. Jinane October 26, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    Fish and chips at the crab tavern brunch is phenomenal!

  10. Naomi Rebello October 26, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    I love the grilled seafood section at brunches! 🙂

  11. Helena October 27, 2016 at 9:38 am

    The cheeseroom, always the cheeseroom! The smellier the better. The St Regis Saadiyat cheese room has close to 100 cheeses and also 2 “cheese sommeliers” (what a job!!) It’s to die for. I love the one at Al Qasr as it has Raclette and the one at Traiteur because it is stunning. Spectrum on One used to have a port trolley in their cheese room too, heavenly.

    I actually check out the cheeseroom before anything else, and sometimes I just have a nibble of some of the “proper” food before I head into the cheese room, I don’t want to be too full so I always start there early.

  12. Louise October 27, 2016 at 9:46 am

    My favourite brunch dish is either starter or dessert, which means either oysters or cheese! To be honest, a brunch isn’t complete without either!

  13. Anil October 27, 2016 at 1:18 pm

    The Beef ribs and desserts.

  14. John Senger October 27, 2016 at 3:40 pm

  22. Laura Barton Toyne October 30, 2016 at 2:35 pm

    I know it’s simple but it has to be the cheese and bread stations. What more could a girl want than bottomless carbs and cheese!

  24. veronika danovska November 1, 2016 at 10:02 pm

    The sea bass risotto at Coya – so good, i dream about it!

  30. Karen D November 3, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    My favourite brunch dish is slowly cooked piping hot beef brisket or short ribs. It tastes delicious without any accompaniment but better with peppercorn sauce. Smells smoky and so good!

  31. AYSEN ASUERO November 3, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    My favorite brunch dish is the English Lobster Roll at Bread Street Kitchen, Dubai. The dish is primarily consist of: Freshly picked English Lobster, thousand island dressing, lettuce, tomato served with house-made paprika crisps. Delicious! and totally worth it for the price.

    Mine is French Toast with cinnamon peaches & lashings of maple syrup – delicious! Just asked my husband this question and his answer is the amazing baked oysters we both enjoyed at the Palazzo Versace Gold Coast, Australia – such a fabulous food memory!

  35. Judy November 6, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    I love the fresh seafood aisle grilled to perfection in front of me. Seabass grilled in a simple, spicy, lemon pepper dressing and jumbo shrimps make my brunch complete!

  36. Ann Erhahon November 7, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    I love the fresh seafood platter at pier chic. Delicious

  37. Petra Dean November 7, 2016 at 5:57 pm

    I love it when I can get a Roast dinner at brunch, especially if there’s Yorkshire puddings!
