Are you looking for a brunch that would tick the box for great food, drinks and keeping the kids occupied? The Friday Family Brunch at Meydan Hotel definitely ticked off every thing in the list.
There is a massive buffet with a dozen of live-cooking stations spread in the garden area overlooking Dubai skyline and inside Farriers restaurant and foyer, offers an extensive culinary journey from around the globe featuring European, Middle Eastern, Asian and South American cuisines together with a wide variety of vegetarian specialties. Furthermore, BBQ lovers (that’s us!) are in for a treat, Meydan culinary chefs are making use of Josper which is the top-of-the-line Spanish ‘grill & oven’ known for its environment friendly aspect, consuming lower charcoal than open grill. Believe me, the richly flavored grilled meat has a deep smoke flavor that would make you come back for more.
While the offerings is massive, it does not feel overwhelming because of the floor to ceiling glass walls that brings in natural light, sitting area is not cramped that you can even let go of the kids and roam around the area without worrying they would bother fellow diners.
To make this a top notch family friendly brunch they have prepared exclusive children offerings, a larger kids area with fun activities, supervised by a dedicated and trained team. Fun activities include face painting, drawing, arts & crafts, balloon twisting, PlayStation games, bouncy castles and weekly surprise activities that will keep the kids entertained.
I advise you to feed them well before letting them go and have the best time. My kids only stayed in our table because we demanded that they eat their food after that both rushed to the play area and got busy.
Our brunch experience made even more special when the staff presented our eldest son a birthday cake. Meydan Hotel has earned a special spot in our hearts because of this sweet gesture.
Overall, the Meydan Family Friday Brunch is an absolute treat. The ambience is welcoming and relaxed, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the buffet has a wide range of offerings that would satisfy every taste. We stayed until the last hour which we don’t often do, that only means we really had a relaxing brunch.
