We sat on the balcony and enjoyed coffee and chocolate mille feuille, a flaky pastry and custard treat. The balcony is huge, so there was plenty of room to enjoy the fresh air and admire the view of the Burj Khalifa.

We went to Paul as we fancied a treat. Thought of nice bakery with nice tea was appealing. Paul is always very busy so don't expect a quiet place. Didn't have our first choice so I went for strawberry tart. It was nice but having gone to Paul in other countries I would have expected more.

This is one of my favourite cafes for coffee and croissants. Located on the ground floor of the Mall. They serve plain, almond or pastiochio croissants. Service is quick and with a smile. Food is also served here too but have yet to try it. Apart from that, the pastries are staring at you, waiting for you to eat them.... More

Went two times to Paul's Bakery & Restaurant. First time we had onion soup, american cafe and double espresso. (unfortunately no pics) Soup were awesome! very tasty, beautifuy presented, served hot with nice bread and spreads. Coffees were unfortunately a desaster. Especially the espresso. Served in a big normal coffee cup which was cold! Espresso itself strong like a normal... More

We visited Paul at wafi mall & airpot,of course the bakery not the restaurant.As a homemade pastry maker I 'm a little picky,but I can say the chocolate mousse is great Being not to creamy or sweet it's really tastefull.As a coffeelover though I think the Cappuccino could be much better.

Great Breads and desserts- but very limited vegetarian variety- service was good- the sandwich was very basic- should have been done much better. Would not visit in future

the sandwich was great and the hot cocoa was sublime ! However, the servers here dont quite listen to your requests - you keep asking the same thing a trillion times and they would not care much. Such good food is marred by a not so good service experience. For eg. asked for a warm break basket - despite waiting... More

In spite of many good restaurants I must say that Paul are clear leaders. The selection of tried and trusted items on its menu, the deserts on offer and bread is by far the best I have ever experienced-even to the point of going to Paul restaurant in Dubai Airport before flying back to UK. Sadness for me there is... 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!
