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)

  • Found an oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
The season has started in the UAE for desert drives and camping! 
Happy Sunday everyone!
  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
