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.

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.

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.....

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with the perfect meal at Le Petite Maison. Excellent service and great food- we started off with the scallop carpaccio and escargot followed by duck and sole. 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

We went here for a Birthday of a friend. The whole Atmsphere is very classy, even though the crowd is evry mixed from 20s - 60s. The service is great, however you expect this from such a high standard restaurant. The food was amazing. definetly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The Nicoise speciality starters were delicious, especially the veal stuffed vegetables and onion tart. Two of our party had the recommended cod, which was outstanding, soft and moist. The slow cooked duck legs on caramelised fennel was memorable. The atmosphere was lively and exciting and the service attentive. An excellent dining experience.

Lunch for two outdoors, nice but not great. Attentive service. The food was not really french but was delicious all the same. Not sure I will go back, a bit over priced!

One of the worst places I re-visited lately. Crowded, noisy like hell, you sitting close to your neighbors table like in a college canteen,... But the best part is...you know what makes it French -beside the name-? The apron of the waiters. But don't tell me anything else is French. Because you serve a bad and too cold foie gras... More

Been to this place a couple of times. Found it over rated. Food is ok though pricey. Service is not great. Seems to be very popular but still not sure why
