You can’t fail to be impressed by the grandeur of the surroundings and the scent of
divinely delicious waffles that greeted us had our mouths watering in appreciation.
When it comes to breakfast we like a good choice and boy, what a selection of delectable
delights we were offered! While we perused the menu, the tasty grapefruit juice was the
perfect appetiser. Cereals, breads, yoghurts, eggs, fruits and meats all vied competitively
for the attention of our hunger. Hot, fragrant cappuccino provided the ideal wake-up call
and set us up for the day ahead.
Beautiful Buffets throughout the day
The highly renowned international buffet menu isn’t just for breakfast. It offers a range
of scrumptious delights for all day dining at its finest. Buffets and a la carte menus work
well alongside each other so however small or huge your appetite, you’ll find something
to satisfy it at Le Vendome. Sophisticated tables both inside and out provide an elegant
environment for a refined dining experience. The fourth floor location provides
incredible views over the beach and marina and we immensely enjoyed our delicious
breakfast served on the impressive terrace. We were treated to a rich breakfast buffet
that couldn’t fail to fuel us for the day. Tourists, families and business men alike seemed
as appreciative of their morning meal as we were and if you’re not in a hurry to get up
as you approach the weekend, you’ll still be in plenty of time to sample the popular
Friday brunch. It’s all about the eggs and for us the eggs Benedict were truly divine. The
mushrooms and tomatoes were beautifully plump and bursting with flavour. Our only
complaint would be that with muffins, croissants, strudels and beautifully presented
breads all tempting our taste buds, it was difficult to decide what to go for to accompany
that lovely second cup of coffee!
Exceptional international fare
It’s easy to see why an equally extensive international buffet or an à la carte menu is
tempting to discernible lunch and dinner diners in search of real tasty food. Fresh
seafood is popular and our fellow diners were keen to recommend the dinner menu
to us and told us they’d advise booking in advance as it can get pretty busy. We could
easily imagine the ambience that would be created during the evening as diners tucked
into dinner whilst appreciating the breathtaking views from the outdoor terrace. For us,
breakfast had truly whetted our appetite.
With 70 seats inside and 65 on the extensive outdoor terrace, Le Vendome is ready to
serve guests exceptional food in an elegant setting and we were served in style. Breakfast
is served from 6.30am to 11am, lunch from 12.30pm to 3,30pm and dinner from 6pm
to 11pm, so internationally inspired fine fare can be enjoyed throughout the day. The
celebrated brunch is available from 12.30pm to 3.30pm every Friday. With so many first
rate restaurants for us to sample during our stay at the Emirates Palace Hotel our first
breakfast had increased our expectations of the culinary week ahead. A&J would like
to thank our friendly waiter for his attentive service and all the staff at Le Vendome for
ensuring that our breakfast experience lived up to the hype. Breakfast at the beautiful
brasserie is certainly a fantastic way to start the day. Next time, we’ll do lunch!
