We've always loved the fabulous, family-friendly Al Badia picnic brunch and were gutted when we found out it had been discontinued. So we're thrilled to hear it's now relaunching at the grassy outdoor terrace of The Pantry by Skyline on level 5 at Crowne Plaza Festival City.
Every Friday from 12 noon to 4pm you'll be able to grab the same cute picnic basket and fill it with delicious treats from the pantry - from smoked salmon bagels to gourmet beetroot and feta salad jars, artisan cheeses and prawn and avocado cocktail - and munch it alfresco on one of the pretty white picnic tables, or on a picnic rug on the grass, all with a new-and-improved panoramic view of the Dubai skyline and creek.
Plus, an array of succulent meats and seafood sizzling on the barbecue, a kid’s area featuring arts and crafts and face painting, popcorn, candy floss and ice creams, all against a backdrop of a live guitarist.
Prices for The Pantry by Skyline start at Dh245 for soft beverages, Dh345 for house beverages and Dh445 for French bubbly. Children under five dine free with one paying adult per two children, whilst kids aged 6-12 years are priced at Dh125.
