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.

One of the best fine dining places in Dubai with a lively bar

Amazing food - In my Dubai Top 3. Almost everything on the menu is delicious. Atmosphere is great, bar is lively. Can get busy/crowded at times and the great service suffers a little - but given the food that's fine.

Always busy, buzzing French restaurant with excellent service from an army of well trained waiting staff and knowledgeable sommelier (with an extensive wine cellar). While living up to the French model of small dishes, the idea to marry it to a mezze style dining was a stroke of genius. Go in a group which will allow you the option to... More

Definetely a must when you visit Dubai. Excellent food and drinks, try their lamb and espressomartinis. One of the best classic restaurants to visit, in a cozy area with a few lounges you can visit after.

Bistrot style cuisine with a Mediterranean accent, served by a kind an efficient staff. The bread is just irresistible and all dishes are yummy. The wine list is well set with prices that you can't argue on. The fish is fresh and well prepared.

La Petite Maison (hereafter LPM) is the perfect emblem of Dubai: a gaudy establishment, filled with your typical, tasteless parvenus, serving mediocre at best food at laughable prices. Do not get me wrong, for the (abysmal) standards of the city LPM serves some relatively inviting dishes using good ingredients - which is quite a rarity in Dubai - yet the... More

Excellent restaurant. All very good, quality food, nice service, elegant location. Food very sophisticated and delicious. However, too expensive. But I recommend it as in Dubai you can spend a lot and have poor dinner. Here, you will never be disappointed.

Excellent food and service. The selection of food is perfect and the standard and quality is very high. The Salade Nicoise is a good choice as is the burrata. The atmosphere is buzzing and feels very french. The staff are attentive and genuine. Would certainly recommend. The best restaurant I have eaten in in Dubai.
