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)

  • Have you ever thought of going to Madeira Island? It’s all on the blog. An adventure guide to Madeira Island and reasons why you should go! 🌴 
Link in bio!
  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
