LAPITA

Dubai Parks and Re­sort’s Poly­ne­sianthemed ho­tel is pulling out all the stops for an egg-cep­tional Easter brunch that will in­clude a range of ex­cit­ing themed ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing an Easter egg hunt for the kids. There’s a half price happy hour at the Lani rooftop bar af­ter­wards, and you could even opt to add an overnight stay from just Dhs504 for bed and break­fast for two when book­ing the brunch.

CAFÉ BELGE

Easter meets The Great Gatsby? A strange com­bi­na­tion per­haps, but one that def­i­nitely works at this Easter brunch, which takes place across the Art Deco restau­rant Café Belge and the ad­join­ing Sunken Garden. Along with the Pro­hi­bi­tion-themed brunch, ex­pect flap­per dancers, live mu­sic and cook­ing sta­tions, as well as an Easter egg hunt for grown-ups where you stand to win amaz­ing prizes, such as com­pli­men­tary spa treat­ments.

Ritz-Carl­ton DIFC, DIFC, Dubai, Fri noon to 4pm, Dhs295 with soft drinks, Dhs395 with house drinks, Dhs450 with prosecco, Dhs525 with cham­pagne. Tel: (04) 3722323. Metro: Fi­nan­cial Cen­tre. ritzcarl­ton.com

GAUCHO

You know you can rely on an Ar­gen­tinian restau­rant to serve up de­li­cious cuts of meat, so tuck into a tasty Easter roast at Gaucho Dubai. Ex­pect all the trim­mings in­clud­ing roast pota­toes and home­made York­shire pud­dings, washed down with sig­na­ture Easter cock­tails. There’ll be en­ter­tain­ment for the lit­tle ones too, in­clud­ing an egg dec­o­ra­tion sta­tion.

Gate Vil­lage, DIFC, Dubai, Fri and Sat noon to 11.30pm, Dhs185 for roast, Dhs365 for roast with two hours of un­lim­ited house drinks. Tel: (04) 4227898. Metro: Fi­nan­cial Cen­tre. gau­chorestau­rants.com

FÜMÉ

In­dulge in a spe­cial Easter a la carte menu for lunch or din­ner at Fümé. Avail­able at both the Pier 7 and Down­town lo­ca­tions, it’s packed full of mod­ern takes on tra­di­tional favourites, from scotch eggs with creamy spinach to lamb sad­dle with Thai as­para­gus. Just don’t miss out on the seven-layer car­rot cake…

Pier 7, Dubai Ma­rina, Dubai, Thur noon to 1am, Fri and Sat 9am to 2am. Tel: (04) 4215669. Metro: JLT. fume-eatery.com

IM­PERIUM

For an Easter brunch that’s stylish but still fam­ily-friendly, head to Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. The stun­ning restau­rant Im­perium is putting on a sump­tu­ous spread, along with plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties for the lit­tle ones, in­clud­ing face paint­ing.

Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, West Cres­cent, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, Sat 1pm to 4pm, Dhs250 with soft drinks, Dhs395 with house drinks, Dhs495 with cham­pagne. Tel: (04) 4530444. Taxi: Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. jumeirah.com

HIL­TON JBr

Cel­e­brate Easter at the Hil­ton and choose be­tween two restau­rants: din­ing from an Ital­ian feast at Bice Ris­torante or an in­ter­na­tional buf­fet at Oceana. While par­ents can re­lax and en­joy the live mu­sic, chil­dren can have fun in the gar­dens, which will be trans­formed into a play­ground fea­tur­ing a bouncy cas­tle, magic show, face paint­ing, Easter egg hunt and more.

Hil­ton JBR, The Walk, JBR, Dubai, Fri 1 to 4pm, Dhs295 with soft drinks, Dhs395 with house drinks. Tel: (04) 3991111. Metro: JLT. hil­ton.com
