I arrived at paul with my family. Waited for 15 minutes for someone to come and seat us and no one came. So i had to fix my own table and chairs. We sat and waited for another 15 minutes for someone to come and at least give us the menu and nothing. So i had to walk over to... More

You can always trust the quality of their food. My favorite place for casual dinning. Safe room for desert and don't rush through their awesome bread basket :) Try the soup :)

I am enjoying regular visits to the new Paul cafe branch in the cube shopping centre. The atmosphere is great and we get used to sit outdoors. The waiters are friendly and have a nice costume. The drinks are well served. I love their ommlett with smoked salmon for breakfast.

My favourite branch is the one in Jabriya, it feels like sitting in someone's library. I love their scrambled eggs for breakfast and I often find myself passing by for the Goat's Cheese salad for a lunch takeaway. Their selection of bread is excellent especially the olive loaves.

Maybe I was expecting more that Paul was prepared to give, or maybe Paul wasn't expecting to serve a quality meal for our party of 3. Regardless, I was hoping for a pleasant and uneventful meal. Having ordered the Catalan, I was expecting a sandwich with more than a thinly sliced piece of meat and cheese... but sorely disappointed when... More

French cuisine at its best in Kuwait! Try the fillet de boeuf and country bread with tapenade. The salmon fillet is also delicious. Good coffee.

The service and the food were typical of any shopping mall restaurant in quality and in price. Not a french boulangerie by any stretch. Just average. If you just can't be bothered to leave the mall, then sit and have a meal with your friends here. But if you want French, then Kuwait surely has better to offer than this.

We have eaten at Paul in Paris many times and feel it is the baguette in the world. We were thrilled to stumble upon this cafe in Kuwait. I had the Caesar salad which was excellent. It is served in a dried french crepe bowl. The Parmesan shavings were delightful. I had a perfectly pulled Espresso as well. Of course,... More
