Top quality brunch with awe-inspiring views to boot. This is one to try before everyone else cottons on to its supremacy. You’ve been warned…


Dark marble and deep brown leathers create a chic, urban vibe. Booths line the walls of the restaurant, with comfy armchairs surrounding the tables, offering a laid-back yet still luxe atmosphere. Bar dwellers can enjoy the mesmerising view of the Arabian Gulf from the futuristic high stools.


While there are a plethora of options at the generous buffet, the made-to-order à la carte menu means you don’t have to constantly get up and down. The buffet is split into themed stations. First is the breakfast station, where you’ll find all the classics from a full English to pancakes and continental treats. A roast station is brimming with all the trimmings, while separate areas also cater for cheese lovers, seafood fans and those with a sweet tooth.


Upscale without being overly pretentious; it’s a great excuse to dress up but be in a relaxed environment. Ideal for fashionable crowds (the restaurant can cater for larger groups), while intimate booths allow for a more private experience.


Aside from delectable cuisine and the best views the marina has to offer, 5pm–8pm is happy hour. Bonus!
