Never fail to impress us, everytime we go there we enjoy every single minute. The quality of food is out of this world, must try Calamari salad my favorite and the duck confit, leave space for pain perdu. The service is always amazing, friendly and...welcoming, the team is very well organized and makes you feel home, Roxane the manager is always there for us, she always make sure to get us the best service and we always go ahead with her recommendations on food and of course wine. Thanks Roxane and team for making us comfortable. See you again soon.More

Me and my partner have visited here on multiple occasions and the food and service is second to none!! The steaks are always beautifully cooked, the side salad, sauce and frites are unbelievable. Not only is the food always perfect, the service you receive from...all the staff there is phenomenal, they are warm, friendly and welcoming. Especially Andy who always goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience. He’s funny, kind and always makes you feel like you’re one of his friends. The atmosphere in the restaurant is a warm and relaxing place to enjoy a nice romantic dinner. Our favourite restaurant in dubai, we can’t fault it :)More
