Hands down, brunch is my favourite meal of the day. Our appetite for long boozy brunches has been growing since having come to Dubai. It’s the perfect way to kick start your weekend, wouldn’t you agree?
The Great British restaurant is a terrific eatery inside the Dukes Dubai Oceana in Palm Dubai. Serving a hearty meal to a crowd of glamorous women and suited men, the brunch features British classics, Indian delights and Italian appetizers. The ever so friendly staff serving at the bustling British restaurant make sure you have a superb time.

Ambiance | It’s all about bringing London to you right here in our very own Dubai. The restaurant has a posh British vibe with high ceilings adorned by candle chandeliers, conventional tiled floors and floor to ceiling windows lighting the place up. Absolutely buzzing with lively chatter and packed with energy, expect people to hang around for hours even after the brunch is wrapped up. We promise, you will literally not want to leave and go home.
Crowd | Dress up in style and come enjoy the brunch. The best dressed couple is awarded a complimentary night stay at the hotel including breakfast. If that’s not motivation enough to pull out your most fashionable outfit, I don’t know what is?! It’s all about courtesy and being sociable at the gathering. Expect smiles all around with a lot of cheery faces.
Food | Brunch allows them a chance to showcase the traditional British roast with all the trimmings along with great breads & salads, phenomenal sliders, classic pies and superb desserts. You cannot dine at a British restaurant and not try the classic fish & chips. Paired with the Sol beer, I’d say they were mighty fine.
They have furnished the salad counter with a variety of fabulous greens, veggies, cheese and more. We highly recommend you try the freshly prepared Burrata salad. They have a whole Indian menu counter. We’re talking butter chicken curry, rice, and evens papadums. You can have pasta prepared to your liking at the live counter. Ask the Chef to throw in the white and red sauce together like we did. Start with — before moving on to
Don’t stuff yourself with mains as their desserts are hard to resist when it’s full of cupcakes, tarts, pastries, cakes and even a chocolate fountain! Try the sticky toffee pudding and thank us later 🙂
Drinks | They have a massive bar in the centre of the restaurant popping out beer, wine, whiskey, gin They even have a live Bloody Mary cocktail counter. If you know what Pimms is, give yourself a pat on the back. If you don’t, you need to stop and try the Pimms cocktail now. Alternatively, devote your time to leisurely sitting down with a cold brew or a sparkling grape. We recommend you cancel any plans after 😛
Service | Service surely doesn’t disappoint, the staff are friendly and welcoming as ever. The servers are very attentive and work in tandem to keep your glasses topped, tables clean and plates full at all times. They are extremely cheerful and up for a conversation if you’re feeling a bit chatty after a drink or two 😀 I’d go as far to say that they excel in service.
Entertainment | There was a live band doing an absolutely sensational job of keeping us entertained while the drinks flowed. She covered a range of songs by artists like Coldplay, Adele, Beatles and more.
