Nice place to go for business lunch, with friends or when you are alone.
The staff are friendly and the chef is good.

Very good value for money...

The bread basket was very good and also the butter was good. Had salad nicoise which was ok... but artichoke could be done better. Friend had fillet du poisson which was nice - very light and just nicely cooked. For dessert we had profiteroles - excellent!! puffy pastry and very nice balance between the ice-cream and cream. Would be nicer with a little bit more hot chocolate..

Nice little restaurant. If you want homely French food - go for Bistro Madeleine. The food is rustique French, with traditional dishes. Not fancy but solid - they do specials. The gratin dauphinois was really cheesy and delicious, the bread basket was also very good. The food was definitely tasty and I will return. While the space has little charm, the terrace is nice and service good. They also take Entertainer Vouchers.

We enjoyed our lunch with friends, sitting outside (with exceptionally nice spring temperatures in April).
The staff is friendly and efficient.
A la carte menu is quite comprehensive.
Bistro Madeleine organises a French specialties' night once a week that my Dubai friends consider the fanciest in town (fondues).
As far as food is concerned, one of our guests took the Thursday' special / breaded veal (Escalope Panée): I would not advise to order it since you get 1 millimeter meat for 10 millimeters bread ... not worth it. Better take other menu items.

We called in here for a family lunch after attending the Literary Festival next door at the Intercontinental Hotel. As the weather was cool and blustery we sat outside in the shade, behind the potted plants. As we were sat in the area that has a drinks license we had to be screened off from the main walkway.

Our waiter was extremely friendly and attentive - moving umberellas and the seating arrangements to ensure we had sufficient shade. The menu is not extensive; however I took this as a good thing - what they do - they do extremely well. There is also a 'special' of the day printed on the menu (depending on what day of the week you are on), also don't miss the specials on the board inside.

Our 11 year old had gone especially for the 'escargot' and was sorry to see they were not available. He ended up chosing from the childrens' menu and had a tasty portion of pasta and meatballs. Looked all very home made - and went down a treat.

Soups (lobster bisque and french onion) were delicious and were served with soft bread and a delicious butter! Not sure how a butter could be so tasty - but it was!

Main courses were steak tartare, beef bourginon and pasta with prawns. All very good.

The Entertainer vouchers are accepted here - so we used these - so all in all seemed reasonable value for money.

Would definately go again.
