I ordered a pumpkin and carrot soup but it tasted exactly like chicken soup! I didnt like it at all! One of the worst soups I have ever had~ I was quite disappointed.

This place offers a different way of presenting our food with its classic ambiance combined with a very tasting meal. I love the omelette and the almond croissant. The hot chocolate is perfect with hot milk to neutralize its thickness. I just don't like the bread they serve on the first plate and the service crew didn't even told us... More

Every time I go to the mall around the world, I must stop to eat something. And Paul is the perfect stop. Food quality is excellent, great service, modest price. Onion soup in Delicious! Crepes au salmon is the best. Truly recommend to everyone.

A nice spot to enjoy the views from the Terrace and continental style breakfast with tasty pastries, good coffee and excellent fresh fruit juice. The staff were all upbeat, smiley and very efficient. You have to enter from inside the mall and can them walk through to the Terrace area, very nice indeed.

I visited the restaurant today with my wife. We ordered two complete breakfast and it was excellent. The coffee was hot and delicious and the egg was cooked very well. The bread was fresh and the service was excellent. The best was the seating. We sat outside with Dubai lake view. The total cost is AED 134 only

I love this bakery...they have a spot in the Dubai airport which is my go to place when flying through...find it in Terminal 3 and make yourself happy during a lay over. Not everything is equally good..the sandwiches and even their quiche are not the things of dreams...But anything made with puff pastry is absolutely amazing. I have especially loved... More

I'm a regular to Paul's whenever I go shopping. The comfort food is so satisfying after a long day walking. I look forward to the initial Bread Basket they bring you, along with the olive spread & butter. My daughters particularity love it with Olive oil & vinegar. I recommend the fettuccine pasta, and the cakes, Paul's make great cakes.... More

Excellent environment, drinks were good and the atmosphere was just relaxing, it is one of my favorite places in Dubai Mall. However, there was a small fly in our Apple Peppermint Mojito, which has been replaced quickly. Overall, the waiter's response rate quite slow and we actually have been ignored for around 5 minutes. When one madam passed on the... More

Popped in for a break from the shopping. The mixed berry tart was lovely, my mum had a croissant which she thought was amazing. I wanted earl grey tea as on the menu but the waiter said they mix it with green tea?? So decided on English breakfast instead. When it finally arrived the tea bag comes in a sachet... More

Since the founding of a small bakery in the French town of Lille back in 1889, the passion for authentic bread making and quality ingredients has remained in the family and been passed on through generations. And so, until today, the love for everything fresh and for good is at the heart of every PAUL. In addition to the bread and viennoiserie which is baked several times a day, the menu at PAUL boast a good selection of light meals and main courses, as well as desserts and fine pâtisserie. Over time, PAUL has become a successful restaurant business with more than 450 shops in 24 countries and has become renowned for its ‘rustic-chic’ ambience - a true celebration of the French ‘art-de-vivre’. We look forward to welcoming you!
