“Good food marred by bad service”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I visited the mall of the emirates outlet. The decor was a bit tacky- but that's alright. Food quite good and out of ordinary though a bit pricey. But I will reiterate as others did in this forum, the service is atrocious.

“A rip off,terrible service....go to La Durée instead”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We went there for an afternoon tea and we were deceived by everything on offer. We were sat down straight away.We were expecting steep prices due to the name, location,decor etc.We asked our waiter, who seemed to not know the word SMILE about the cakes and sweets on offer , he was rather clueless and instead it was easier to check them on display.We ordered a lemon tart and a macaroon which were tasty but expensive.We also ordered for 2 teas. When they arrived, I was expecting loose tea leaf in a pot as the price is AED39 each, instead it was a normal tea bag and the taste was average!!!!Felt like we were being robbed....when we finished, our waiter never asked us how was the tea or the cakes...we would have told him how we felt about the tea prices...
We never got a smile from the waiter....very poor service and a rip off....definitely go to La Durée which is nearby.

“Delicious”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Open location and nice menu. While it seemed rather expensive, we found the food quality to be very good. Particularly enjoyed the Mushroom risotto.

“Good Cafe, Terrible Service”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went there for afternoon tea. The service was very slow. The waiters are under trained.

They had an average selection of tea to choose from, nothing spectacular.

The location is nice and the atmosphere is good too with some nice background music.

It would be a very good place to relax in after a bit of shopping in the mall only if they could improve on the service.
