The Farm, Al Barari Dubai

Breakfast….. Relax….. Just Be

We had breakfast this morning at The Farm in Al Barari.  It was quite a drive considering I live in Old Dubai but worthwhile in this splendid weather!

The Al Barari Estate is a botanical haven with beautiful themed gardens, naturally landscaped lakes and freshwater streams. The drive into the estate leading to the restaurant is surrounded by densely planted shrubs and tree-lined roads.

The Farm boasts of best quality ingredients, locally sourced and organic when available including their freshly homemade bread and baked good.  The menu also includes several gluten-free and vegan options that are healthy and indulgent.  Inside the main building they sell both local and imported produce and wares.

The indoor seating is small and low lying, with a couple of tables.  However outdoor seating is always preferred in the cooler months.  During summer the outdoor seating is covered with glass sides and air-conditioning.

The outdoor tables overlook a landscaped lake with freshwater streams, surrounded by a botanical garden.  The staff are extremely welcoming and the interactive menu (on an Ipad) is quite informative.  The food is well priced with good portion sizes and fresh, quality ingredients.  Since the weather was splendid we spent a couple of hours soaking the sun, enjoying our sumptuous breakfast and the tranquil surrounding in the company of good friends!
