Description: Since the founding of a small bakery in the French town of Lille back in 1889, the passion for authentic bread making and quality ingredients has remained in the family and been passed on through generations. And so, until today, the love for everything fresh and for good is at the heart of every PAUL. In addition to the bread and viennoiserie which is baked several times a day, the menu at PAUL boast a good selection of light meals and main courses, as well as desserts and fine pâtisserie. Over time, PAUL has become a successful restaurant business with more than 450 shops in 24 countries and has become renowned for its ‘rustic-chic’ ambience - a true celebration of the French ‘art-de-vivre’. We look forward to welcoming you!

I had dinner there one night. The pumpkin/carrot soup was out of this world. I then had the most tasty chicken crepes that I have ever had. The bill was very reasonable considering the quality of the food and the good service. Great bistro!

This review is for the DXB location only - and not for the whole chain.
The presentation and appearance of the store is identicial to the stores in Paris and the food looked great through the glass case. I ordered the french onion soup and the rhubarb tart. The onion soup was extremely greasy, the tart was ok. But the biggest turn off were the rolls they served: they're were like rocks! I tried ripping them, slicing with a knife and finally had to resort to biting chunks off, violently! That's huge problem and very ironical for a store that advertizes itself as a 'bakery'! The tart, soup and water cost me $15, which is not too bad by EU standards, but is certainly on the expensive end by Dubai standards. Overall, there are better places at DXB airport, so dont get enticed by their nice display!

i got sick after eating there! twice actually. i ordered a crepe-chicken-lasagna or so and another cream-chicken dish. didnt get sick when i had a sandwich but that i didnt like so i didnt even finish it.
on the other hand they have amazinly delicious dessert!
i wouldnt go there again as the chicken is nearly tasteless and got sick more than once but that may be my oversensitive stomach's fault.
i would probably only go there again for their dessert!

I visited Paul's JBR branch. It was early morning and we managed to bear the heat of Dubai's summer long enough to enjoy a lovely breakfast. It's a child-friendly venue with lots of outdoor space for the kids to run around without annoying fellow guest.
