Description: 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!

Good food, hearty portions and great tea and coffee. This place is always packed so if at times you have to wait, its worth the wait. Not the cheapest option but the quality of food served is par excellence

A chain which provides an array of 'French' pastries and so so coffee. When in need of a caffeine fix with a sugar hit this place does assist.

I generally hit the Burjaman mall location, but all offer the same menu. The airport locations are good place to grab a bite for the plane rather than eat the hot box meals served on board. Everything made fresh that day. The Dubai Mall location has some pretty tight seating, however.

Only had a chocolate eclair, but left disappointed at the racist service and lack of attention. Maybe we need to be Saudi or white to get good service in Dubai!?

We enjoy Pauls for its variety. Here service was good the food a little average and did not attain European flavors expected so it was a little disappointing. Not cheap but given location OK.
