I really liked the Agency Cheese and Wine deal at the Madinat, it’s being billed as a Post Brunch deal. Here’s what you get.
Agency is offering as much cheese as you can eat. On offer is a really good variety of quality cheese. With a splash of honey and some fig chutney on the side, together with lot’s of nice bread and artisan crackers.
So here’s the deal, as well as the cheese platter you also get a bottle of red or white wine person for AED 195 PER PERSON!
There isn’t a choice of wine within the broad category of red or white but our red wine from South Africa was very good and easy to drink.
The Agency Cheese and Wine deal Cheeses
The cheeses were well thought out and complemented each other. You can re order any of the cheeses if you’d like more, but portions are generous.
Agency Cheese and Wine deal view
The Agency cheese and wine deal starts at 4pm and finishes at 8pm and it’s only on every Friday.
I suggest you eat on a high table on the terrace outside. Go towards the right side of the terrace and you’ll get gorgeous views of the Burj Al Arab and a peaceful bit of the Mina A Salam Madinat waterways with abras floating up and down. As well as the odd bird or too! A very relaxing way of eating on a Friday afternoon if you don’t want a big brunch or if you want to continue from where you left off!
It’s also a real contrast to the mainly touristy sections of the Madinat Jumeirah.
Post Brunch Deal NOTE
Apparently sharing is frowned upon so the deal of AED195 for the bottle of wine and all the cheese is per person, but maybe you could order for one and take advantage of the other snack items also offered at reduced prices till 5pm, I recommend their aubergine pate.
This deal is great for vegetarians or if you’re opting for a meat free meal. If you don’t eat dinner afterwards and resist snacking (I managed!) then you’re eating early so you’ll have plenty of time to digest your meal.
They do offer some pudding shots but there is an extra charge for these, AED 55 for 3 is great value but after all that good cheese and wine I think I’d prefer my coco yogo mango passion fruit dessert over these!
If you’re still contemplating going away for half term then try Hotels.Com for more reasonably priced accommodation, good sales on at the moment too!
