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.

“Fancy pants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great food, ambience and quality produce. It's a place where all the "cool cats" go. It lacks a bit of authenticity. I'm not sure putting a whole lemon and tomato on the table creates this authenticity. If it is distinctive food you are after at posh prices then this is a great place. Good place for a business lunch.

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I went to La Petite Maison last October, The food was fantastic, the service impeccable and the atmosphere lively and alive.

It is not an everyday restaurant as it's quite pricey, but would gladly go again :-)

“classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

this place has class. came for lunch on a friday - yes, lunch, not brunch. so nice to have a place in dubai serving normal, a la carte lunch for a change. the waitstaff are all clean-cut, highly trained, and western, and their service was excellent. the food was also outstanding. a french couple was seated next to us, and seemed to be enjoying their meal, which was a very good sign.
