Sky High Brunch at Observatory Bar & Grill in Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites

The Sky High Brunch at the Observatory Bar & Grill is one of Dubai’s well-known brunches that feature one of the best 360 panoramic views of Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah.

Located on the 52nd floor of the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, this flight-themed brunch has been re-designed to feature a 4-course set that is delivered to your table. The restaurant team has carefully crafted a delicious menu with a variety of dishes to suit all tastes.

It’s still an unlimited serving of food and drinks so if there’s something from their menu that you fancy, you can go for a second or third serving. But a word of caution, the food servings they prepare in every course are more than enough. Pace yourself as you indulge in each course and enjoy the atmosphere.

Alcohol: YES

Observatory Bar & Grill Brunch at Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites

It’s been a while since my wife and I last went out for brunch in Dubai. Due to our work schedules, we don’t get the usual weekends off. That’s why when the opportunity to sample the Saturday Brunch at the Observatory Bar & Grill, we didn’t hesitate to reserve a spot.

After Dubai updated its workweek and changed weekends to Saturdays and Sundays, hotels and restaurants have also switched from Friday Brunch experiences to Saturdays. The Sky High brunch has also modified its menu and we find it better than the food is served straight to your table.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the host with a pilot cap and we were escorted to our table. The view from the restaurant is amazing – 360 degrees of Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah. It’s definitely worth going for this alone!

Sky High Brunch Menu

The brunch is categorized into 4 courses, with each course having its own signature theme name – All Aboard, Buckle Up, Cruising Altitude, and Descend to Final Destination. Instead of going to a buffet spread, the drinks and food are served to your table. We’re so spoiled in Dubai. 😉

Below are your menu options from the 4 courses:

First Course – All Aboard

The first course featured a couple of salads and a charcuterie board. Paired these with our welcome sparkling wine and cocktails, it was a great way to start the brunch experience.

  • Charcuterie – a selection of pork cuts, meat cold cuts, pickles, and olives, with Bried and Cheddar
  • Pesto Ricotta and Dried Tomato with Caramelized Onion, Spinach, Pesto Sauce
  • Beluga Lentil Salad with Roasted Golden Beet, Rocket Lettuce

The 2nd course features some Asian items. We liked the eggplant lettuce cup, pulled beef bao, and the dim sum basket.

  • Eggplant Lettuce Cup with Hoisin Sauce, Crispy Noodles
  • Pulled Beef Bao with Asian Slaw, Miso Venerate
  • Dim Sum Basket – Prawn Har Gow, BBQ Chicken Bun, Vegetable Dumpling, Seafood Fried Curry Dumpling
  • Assorted Sushi Rolls

Main Course – Cruising Altitude

I found the main course particularly satisfying, especially the pork meat platter. Guests who have specific dietary requirements need not worry as the team can adjust the menu accordingly. They will ask you if you have any specific requirements to cater to your preferences.

  • Pork Platter – Succulent Pork Belly, Pork Schnitzel, Chipolata Sausage, Korean BBQ Ribs
  • Mixed Grill Platter – Satay Prawns, Pan Seared Salmon, Lamb Rump, Beef Anticuchera, Chicken Cordon Bleu
  • Pumpkin Tortellini
  • Potatoes au Gratin
  • Roasted Vegetables
