Dear Followers, Dear Readers, It is of outmost importance to be vigilant when visiting such a posh and pretentious restaurant. I have visited many times, this rather fantastic but have been left with my mouth “open” -literally- after my visit last night. The story goes,...More

“Nice bistro” would be classified in France, but in DIFC it skyrocks appreciation and prices. Good food, not really picky, with nouvelle cuisine portions but not that elaborated. Plenty of staff, very gentle but now always knowledgeable: that’s a standard in Dubai. Vote? “average +”.

La Petite Maison used to be one of my absolute favourite places in Dubai: the food was superb, the service was discrete and professional, the ambience was understated (with background music which allowed you to talk comfortably to your fellow diner) and you always left...More

This ‘is’ a first-class restaurant, the food, service and atmosphere all work perfectly. An excellent menu and wine selection with pricing on par with any good quality fine dining restaurant. I say fine dining, however is well balanced; exceptional service and not too formal to...More

Food was fantastic - definitely worth every Dirham. However, do not ask for recommendations by the sommelier (female with dark-framed glasses) unless you are aware of the prices. When I asked for an easy red wine that goes well with the entrecote I was offered...More

If the name of the restaurant wasn't enough of an indication, this French dining establishment is amazing. If you're craving the standard French food fare, this is the spot. This is fine dining, so things are pricey, but the food is so very worth it....More

I think the food might have been good. Unfortunately, it all tasted like an ashtray thanks to the many people chain smoking at the bar. I hope the management reconsiders letting smokers ruin others' dining experience.

We went for dinner with a friend visiting from Sweden. Generally the restaurant is nice, the food is good and the service matches that. Being in a (top class) French restaurant our friend ordered oysters for starters. Our server came back and said that they...More

It's all online at the restaurant's Dubai website. You'll need to download the pdf menus for the prices (in UAE dirhams of course).

The home of Cuisine Nicoise, whose origins lie in old Genoese cooking, is the old town of Nice where French Mediterranean cuisine has blended and evolved with the influences of Ligurian Italy across the border. Local produce, notably artichokes, courgettes, lemons, olives, tomatoes, peppers and girolles are used generously with sea food, meat and fresh pasta to produce a style that's light and healthy. Oil obtained from olives groves on the hills of the Alpes Maritimes behind Nice and extending into Liguria is used throughout.
