Are you thinking of champaign brunches? Never heard of unlimited champaigne breakfasts here, but then I don't drink the stuff.

you must mean brunch...and yeah, there are quite a few doing it, including al qasr (my fave), mina al salaam, yalumba, peppercrab (incl a bottle of moet per couple, then unlimited beer/wine/spirits), and spectrum on one at the fairmont...

Hi MM

Thank you (I did mean brunch)

I think the peppercrab would be a good place and then maybe sliding over to the mina al salaam

anyhting between 150 to 550 dependent on whether you want a british pub setting (nelsons, double decker) or champagne and the finest food (yalumba, al qasr etc)

Friday 12 - 4 is standard though some are 12-3.30/12.30-4 etc

Also places like Shangri La and Five Dining at Jumeirah Rotana do eat and drink as much as you like every night (200 and 160 respectively I think) so if you fancy an evening brunch thats a good shout.....
