Excellent as always, but an update on the menu would be welcomed!

The atmosphere is fantastic, the service is great as is the food but after several years and being that the place has regular patrons, the menu could do with an update.

For starters, the calamari, scrambled egg and burrata mozzarella are excellent. For main course, all the fish is exceptional, the cuts of meat are exquisite and the desserts are wonderful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, it is one of the best in Dubai.

The food, the service, the ambience; everything. I don't know what else to say about this place other than La Petite Maison is as delicious as it always is. As with many other restaurants in Dubai; make sure you book in advance. And if you're lucky you might spot a few celebrities...

One of the best restaurants I have ever been too! We ordered the gnocchi and the penne arrabbiata. Was amazing. The service was superb! The desert we ordered was even a bigger surprise. The chocolate mouse was so so good!!

Very good restaurant in DIFC, always full as it is one of the best restaurant in Dubai. The food is good, simple and served on sharing concept. Expensive as you pay for their popularity, service is attentive but some time can be arrogant. Overall really good restaurant, definitely i will go back.

We visited La Petite Maison on the 23rd June. The service was very efficient and friendly. The food was excellent, we had the tiger prawns and the coquelet. They were both first class. There are a good range of cocktails and wines. My criticisms would be that the tables are far too close together - I think this is a... More

I had high hopes for La Petite Maison after hearing great things from friends who had visited previously. It was a nice setting and atmosphere, lively and fun environment. The food was good, but nothing memorable. Before hardly introducing himself or the menu the server came over and read off a lengthy list of items that were not available that... More
