“As good as France.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

My favorite place in Abu Dhabi to enjoy good French food. It is a nice quiet restaurant with exquisite french food. The salad is absolutely yummy and the wide selection of main courses will please any palette. The staff are one of the friendliest and they are very attentative. Especially their manager Buddy.

Must Try: Fondue

“A regular retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

Into our second year of weekly suppers at Le Beaujolais, and it has never deviated from excellent service, great unpretentious food, and a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.All down to Buddy and his team, hope they are paying him, the chefs and the service staff what they are worth worth!!

“Average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

With my curiosity on French cuisine, we tried it on a late lunch. I myself is amused with French gourmet food that i wanted to learn how to make them. So I ordered their famous Buorguignon, it was a bit salty for me, even the pasta that came with it was salty too. Escargot was bitter although hubby's dish was excellent. I can't remember the name but it was chicken with apple. Creme Bulee was excellent too. The price live up with my expectations. Affordable for a gourmet food.

“Thanks, foodiemum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

I've walked past this place a dozen times and even stayed in the hotel but never tried it! This week I made a special trip and was very impressed.
Step through the coffee bar area and you find yourself in a twin room, divided by the bar area, with smoking section at the back and non-smoking at the front. You can tell immediately that you aren't in Paris because the service is friendly and helpful. Not the world's biggest menu but they have an additional "pork" sheet you must see.
Very good mussels starter followed by the stuffed chicken. Well prepared and well presented. I heard fellow diners praising the salmon. I'm going back next week for a crack at the pork and a try of the wine. Buddy indeed was full of bustling charm but well supported by his associates . A thoroughly pleasant evening - under AED 140 for the two courses and a pint of Hieneken.

“French food at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

We lived in Abu Dhabi for 14 years and always went to Le Beaujolais. We now try and go back every 6 months or so and Le Beaujolais is still up there with the best. The decor is as it was 14+ years go. Ont be put off the food is great. From confit de canard to boeuf bourginon to amazing steaks you have to go. As mentioned by ShawDubai, Buddy is a great guy and very helpful. No need to get too dressed up as its bistro food in bistro surroundings. Compared to Aberdeen prices for similar quality this is very well priced.
