The last time we were at Li Brasil – we had the little people with us. Safe to say I was quite pleased to find out that Brunch Beleza at Li Brasil is strictly adults-only. A chance to relax and have some good lebanese and brazilian food, sip on cocktails and enjoy the view with friends and the other half.
So – how was Brunch Beleza? What do you get, how is it like?
Sorry, where is Li Brasil again?
Li Brasil is on the ground floor of Address Beach Resort, to the left of the building as you walk in from the main entrance.
It has an extensive outdoor terrace area, for the right reasons. I mean, just look at the view from here.
Let’s talk about the food.
All food and drinks is served-to-table, so you basically sit back and relax. As you would expect, it’s a little bit of lebanese cuisine and brazilian cuisine put together in the menu.
There’s cold mezzes to start – dibba bay oysters, served with lemon and tabasco. Can I say that all brunches should kick off with oysters? 🙂 It just brings a smile to your face, doesn’t it? So Dubai. Oysters, and the view of JBR, the Arabian Gulf and Ain Dubai…. haha.
There’s ‘hummus beiruti‘ of course, and bulgur bel romman (see photos). And a classic Brazilian dish (not that I know much about Brazilian cuisine, but of the few times we have been) – pineapple carpaccio served with avocado, pomegranate and sumac dressing – yummmm.
Next up you’ll get hot mezzes to share – coxinha brazileria (chicken croquettes), cheese cigars, meat kibbeh with lemon mint and falafel with tahini. All of these are fried, served in a bowl with its sauce on the side. There’s also lamb and chicken kofta, so much of it – we were getting worried as were haven’t even had mains yet – so we politely asked them to please bring the main deal before we couldn’t eat anymore 😉
As you would expect in a Brazilian resetaurant – there was churrasco meat – rump cap steak, peri peri chicken, lamb sausages (more!), as well as grilled pineapple (yummmm). All this was brought to the table on a skewer and served onto your own plate.

Our friends had to leave before desserts, so we were stuck with a lot of sweet treats to share between the two of us. Just look at the beautiful tropical fruit platter, properly put together on crushed ice. Do you see the dragonfruit and rambutan? 😉
The two us tried our best to eat it all – there was acai sorbet, chocolate mousse, rabanada (labneh foam with butterscotch), as well as a coconut tart. Too much, too much 🙂
Have a look at Brunch Beleza’s brunch menu here.
Was there any entertainment?
There was a dj on the decks, and also a Brazilian dancer that came out a few times with different costumes. To be mentioned that this may change, so please double check with the Address before you go to see what they have on the day that you are booking.
I would say Brunch Beleza is definitely one to bring family and friends who are visiting, or somewhere to celebrate a special occasion at. The outdoor terrace is beautifully designed ; the views are absolutely stunning from there. I’m glad the food is all served to you, which makes it a really chilled, relaxing child-free afternoon. It’s definitely a nice one for a date as we did notice a few couples there that afternoon.
Another thing to mention, which we were both very appreciative of – was that you are allowed to take home the food that you cannot finish – so there’s no wastage here. Kudos, team Address for that 😉
