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.

Had a selection of different course, rib eye steak, lobster, fish, snails, fish capriccio..... without exception they were well presented and delicious. Home made bread also served throughout the meal was delicious. Quite expensive but not for the quality of food and wine. A great place for a special treat or to take customers. There was a second sitting so... More

Had a business lunch here recently, was very impressed with the food and service. We had a selection of prawns in olive oil (excellent), scallop carpaccio and sea bass carpaccio (both ok). Mains, the steak is genuinely the best I have had in Dubai and I will be returning to the restaurant purely to eat that again! One minor comment... More

It was a birthday dinner treat by my Boyfriend. As it is known to be one of the best French Restaurant in town so he want me to experience it. Considerably busy night. The restaurant was very congested. We were seated in a corner table. The staff had to pull the table out so I can get into my seat... More

La Petite Maison is one of the very few places that truly can be called elegant. Located amongst wonderful art galleries in Dubai's Financial District, the atmosphere there provides a wonderful place to enjoy an evening. The service was delightful and very attentive. The food, not only was pleasantly presented, but delicious. The Bar is great for both before and... More

This is a very charming place! Amazing for a dinner date but nice for a family gather as well. Its elegant and the food is fantastic! I suggest to try scallop carpaccio, tuna carpaccio, lentil salad, warm prawns, friend baby calamari, lamb chops, and desserts! Leave space for a dessert because they are unforgettableeee

from the ambiance to the quality of the food, all perfect except the bill, but there's much like everywhere else in Dubai.

Went to the restaurant with some colleagues. The setup and atmosphere were brilliant. The food as well tasted good. My only comment is that the restaurant doesn't offer much to Vegetarians and Vegans, which I understand is not yet a popular diet in the city.

The food is excellent and well presented and we enjoyed the meal and its service. We were not particularly impressed with our recommended Rose wine or indeed the wine service which struck us as somewhat "could not care less" Quite a large restaurant so not intimate.
