Cafe Kranzler is a relaxed all-day dining restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Arabian Gulf that offers both à la carte and buffet menu options, featuring live-cooking stations.
We tried their friday garden brunch which kicked off this year and it was perfect. The brunch offers an authentic dining experience complete with picnic tables set on the green lawns, overlooking the beach. It features Indian, Italian, Chinese and Arabic live-cooking stations, live BBQ station with seafood and different meats, and a large variety of mouth-watering home-made desserts.
There is definitely something for everyone at the Friday Garden Brunch. Before you are seated, they will show you around the area and introduce you to an array of live cooking stations. There is also a playground for the kids, a live band, clowns and magicians and staff roaming around offering more food and drinks served straight to your table.
An overload of food is to be expected when you go to the friday brunch. Aside from the live cooking stations outside where you can already have basically everything, you’ll be surprised to know that inside the restaurant are more food and desserts like the sweets and cakes and ice cream and the now famous, chocolate shawarma. As if these are not enough, they even filled the fridge with more desserts and fresh fruits and I felt like I was just at home raiding the kitchen.
Even though the restaurant was roomy and the garden was a sizable one, I didn’t notice a shortage of staff attending to the guests. The waiters were friendly and had smiles on their faces as they serve the guests. Whenever we needed something, there was always someone waiting and ready to assist us with what we need. I also noticed that they call some guests by their names so I thought that it was a sign of great customer service.
Overall I think that the Friday Garden Brunch is the most relaxed brunch I’ve ever been to. The setting is perfect, with the weather slowly cooling down and the sound of the waves complemented with the soothing voices of the band. And with the abundance of food choices, what more can anyone ask for? I would definitely come back and I think it’s the best way to spend your Friday afternoon. For only AED 185, you can enjoy the brunch and for AED250 you can have access to the beach as well. And for AED290, you can have brunch, access the beach and have unlimited selection of beverages. The Friday Garden Brunch runs every Friday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Kempinski Hotel in Ajman.
