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.

We went to La Petite Maison a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed ourselves a lot. We had a table outside and everything was in typical French style and my husband felt almost like back home in Paris. Inside seating though didn’t appeal to us, as it was very crowded and with the bar-atmosphere and music not ours, as we... More

3 of us for dinner and it was superb. Each main course was so flavoursome - French cuisine at its very best. We had drinks before which were great and starters - lovely atmosphere - the whole experience was enjoyable. Sadly, the bill was very very lumpy but that's the norm in Dubai - Great to go there if your... More

Must book in advance and felt slightly rushed but everything else was perfect. Service immaculate, food delicious. Great way to taste lots of dishes as this restaurant serves everything in the middle of the table. My only critique would be smoking inside. But hey when in France.....

Super full but were coaxed nicely into dessert- apple tart- lovely. Was recommended a lovely wine for our meal and our waiter Jerome was attentive, helpful and friendly... More

I heard countless tales about this very popular place in dubai. I have already been to la petite maison in other parts of the world, they were all good but not astonishing. I thought maybe this branch had made some difference. on the positive side, the place looks lovely, very well lit and nicely laid out and furnished. The welcome... More
