“Great food for all; best place for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is my favourate place when travelling with a group. This choice here is fantastic; Italian, Indian, salads, sandwiches, and all brought to your table well prepared. The set up is good and pleasant, at very reasonable prices.
May be a bit hard to find, but go to the 2nd floor in the Gallary Lafayette, and walk thru the shop towards the end past the coffee shop. Enjoy.

“Good pasta at Italian Corner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I went back this time to Galerie Laffaette Gourmet located on the second floor of the Dubai Mall. You have fantastic choice from a several type of cuisine (Indian, sushi, tapas, lebanese, italien e.g.). IN addition, you have tthe choice also to eat to each corner, to takeaway or even ask for deliviries. This time, I wanted to try the Italian Corner and pasta especially. The choice of pasta is quiet important (approx. 10 different plates). I choose the Tagliatelle with chicken and cream sauce. The dish was very good even small portion

The pasta is put in a nice box and price is above market due to quality but expensive compared to quantity.

Service is ok but should more friendly

“Restaurant offering various cuisine in the Dubai Mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The restaurant Galeries Lafayette is on the top floor of Dubai Mall (largest mall in the world). It has a supermarket with products mainly imported and luxury as well as various stalls offering various cuisines. One can either eat there or away. It has such a stand offering the seafood and shellfish, a stand with many Italian cheeses, a corner of India, where you can choose the sauce with his meat.

So far, my choice fell on Indian cooking and the butter chicken. I took a light enough sauce without too much spice. The meat was excellent.

I would return to test another world cuisine.

Areas for improvement:
  - Price a bit higher than average because of the quality of imported products.

“Excellent food, below average service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Love the fact that you can pick from so many cuisines and the food is good. Service was terrible, after 30 minutes of ordering my pasta they had completely forgotten about it.

“Welcome to a paradise of choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

In the center of Dubai Mall, in the heart of La Fayette department store, stands a new reference in luxury, La Fayette Gourmet.
Here’s destination for food connoisseurs, delicatessen, palate games and more.

As I entered the La Fayette Gourmet in Dubai, I couldn’t help but compare it to the one I have already tried in Paris. A million questions zapped through my head: Would they have the same choices as the one in Paris; would it carry the same quality, use the same ingredients, apply the same knowhow and offer the same variety… in its Dubai version, that’s some 4800km far away from the original source?
The wide floor is divided into many sections, the grocery part where you can buy all your needs and the other half boats a restaurant tasting area where you can buy feebly prepared food or even eat on spot.

There’s a fish market, a cheese fridge, a pork room, sushi and Japanese section, the grill area, the pastry island, the meat corner, the vegetables paradise, an Italian oven and the chicken side.
International chefs from Morocco, Lebanon, India, Italy, Asia Pacific and the Mediterranean are found at the La Fayette Gourmet.
Basically you can imagine the vast amount of choices. Do you see what I am trying to say? The possibilities are endless.
The variety of food and vegetables are available fresh, frozen, cooked or even packed depending on the customers needs.
After visiting the different parts of the restaurant, my friend and I decided to sit down at the restaurant for lunch. The menu is divided intro three parts: The Luxury menu, the sushi counter menu and the regular menu that includes Italian, Mediterranean, Asian and Indian food choices. You can order whatever you want from the menu and have it delivered to your table.

I think it’s a great place for a group of friends want to go out. They will surely enjoy La Fayette Gourmet, more than any other regular restaurant out there. The wide space, the variety of food choices as well as their welcoming staff, all play a role in making this address a number one choice for many.

It’s like visiting ten restaurants under one roof, tasting several ingredients from international cuisines, eating there as well as wrapping some to take home for the next day.
We had the Spider Roll Maki (crab, avocado, wasabi and lettuce), the Wasabi prawns with mango sauce, lamb Tajin with Safran and onions. Delicious and fresh!
If you’re looking for change, a new culinary experience, a fresh new way of living, here it is, visit La Fayette Gourmet, you’ll understand my enjoyment.
