This legendary Australian outpost near the airport may represent a long-haul trek for most Dubai residents, but it’s well worth the miles. A slightly older crown ensures a more relaxed vibe, and when the doors are thrown open to the terrace, it becomes an open-air dance floor that’s always full thanks to crowd-pleasing tunes. The brunch is separated into two main sections; the outdoor barbecue and the indoor buffet, which is loaded with seafood. There’s also an al la carte menu with tender lamb shank, vegetable ratatouille and crispy polenta, and – our favourite – grilled mussels gratin.
