Description: 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.

Overall a very good experience. I dined there with two business colleagues. They were running late and we were 30 minutes late for our lunch reservation. Rather than to make us wait, the squeezed us in and we had a table in five minutes at this incredibly busy restaurant. We were greeted tableside by the manager, and had prompt service... More

We were 8 people so we tried like 24 dishes including desserts. The dishes were all tasty, I remember the crevette, the fish dishes, the duck was wonderful, the steak as well, and the Pain Perdu!

Was in for lunch and had, seabass and beef Carpaccio, lamb and lobster pasta. All was very good but the lobster tag was a little disappointing I expected better. Although the pain perdu dessert was phenominal. Service fantastic and professional. Would like to return more often but unfortunately it a little out of my price range for repeat visits.

Is there any other way to describe this place? A rare treat and a must visit when in Dubai place. Servings are just right and the presentation exquisite. The raw tomato and lime at the table were an added special touch.

The food is great, the atmosphere is decent, and the service is alright. However the downside here is that they can get arrogant, probably a victim of their own success. I tried out another restaurant La Serre recently which had a similar look but with a much friendlier atmosphere and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows facing the Downtown area. So while LPM... More

One of my personal favorite places in Dubai! The food is great and the quality is consistent. Located at the DIFC This place is popular for both lunch (amongst businessmen and workers at the DIFC) and for dinner. My personal choice include the not-to-be-missed Burrata, lentil salad, quinoa salad, onion tarts, and the lambchops! Enjoy the food!

I had dinner again at La Petite Maison in October 2014. Excellent food and service. Hisham was the waiter and he is very knowledgeable about the dishes and very friendly. The food is excellent, will go back for sure.

The place has a lively buzz and can get very crowded so be sure to book in advance. The food was delicious - we had a selection of appetizers followed by main course. Main course helpings are generous to say the least and we enjoyed sharing the food around the table. Highly recommended
