Don’t move, let’s brunch : Geales DubaiLike0

I’m not a fan of brunches… One, I don’t drink (ok, I can’t hold my alcohol properly…1 glass of wine and I go straight home to bed), two, I am always on a diet so I always tend to over eat at brunches in order to have my money’s worth and three, I dislike the notion of getting up every time to get my food. I just end up over filling my plate. So, when we got invited to try Geales Dubai in Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa , I have to say I was skeptical at first BUT the idea to brunch at  “London’s favorite neighborhood fish restaurant” (which has branches in trendy Notting hill and Chelsea Green) and a fashionable setting with the trendy Grunge Union Jack Pillow, without even getting up, had me left curious and miss England and… we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful 24 degrees Celsius Weather.

First Impression  The beautiful black marble on the floor and the attention to detail on every corner, the leather furniture and the fashionable sailor like waiters wearing black and white stripes jerseys and well trained to make sure you are definitely in another world. Reaching our round table that faced the beautiful green lawn by the pool was difficult to get to since the DJ has already had us at hello with the happiest house music playing and I for one could not stay still! I came to realize what a difference this article could have been if I was not impressed at first sight. It was really a beautiful day!

The food was served on the table so you don’t need to move! Perfect Friday! I was trying to take a picture for instagram but saved it for here, you will be impressed with the colors.

The Posh Nosh Friday Brunch with some favorite British classics such as Oysters, Shrimps, Chicken Liver, Brie Salad, Brioche Bun with Chicken Liver Pate, egg Benedict, Quiche, Fish & Chips, Roasted beef mash potato and Yorkshire pudding with onion gravy (mouth watering) are amongst the few things that were served on our table and finished with Sticky toffee pudding (the creme de la creme of all desserts!) strawberries with cream and a fruit salad.

My favorites The house music, the weather, the food, the service, the decor and ambiance. What I can’t believe is how I never got to learn about this place until today. The menu changes every 4/5 weeks! Make sure you book as soon as possible to take advantage of the outdoor seating area!

Recommended for groups of friends, families and intimate couples (Chloe loved being in the outdoors with the music and the bouncy castle)

Worth the price? Most definitely.

  • AED 500 including a selection of alcoholic beverages (Great cocktails too)
  • AED 350 including free flow of soft beverages

Would we return? We have already booked in for Friday 20th and most of all, I for one, did not over eat. (Except for the toffee cake)

  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

Thank you @dennisstever for this lovely picture ♥️
  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead. 
This photo was taken in an elephant sanctuary in North of Thailand in 2016
May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
