Description: La Serre is a homegrown lifestyle dining concept consisting of an authentic Parisian-style boulangerie on the ground floor, with a bistro and bar on the first floor, both spaces deliver the same quality with different ambiances and different menus. It is a destination where there is a discovery of great offerings of bread and traditional French cuisine in an atmosphere which identifies with its origins. A restaurant that is driven by the quality of its raw base products. Although the bistro and boulangerie are connected and share the same quality mission statement, they are treated as separate entities

“Lunch at La Serre”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

La Serre has a very familiar feel to another similarily styled restaurant in Dubai & the menu continues this theme. The light & airy feel of the restaurant with its massive glass frontage, is a delight. I found the staff all extremely engaging & all were very interested in how we rated our experience. The restaurant was not that busy for lunch & therefore the atmosphere was slightly cool.
The quality of all the dishes we ordered impressed myself & my guests with the beef tartare being of particular note. I would have no hesitation in recommending La Serre as the quality is fantastic. If I had to levy any critisism, it would only be that the menu is far too similar to the other premium Provence style restaurant, not too far away.
A great experience, none the less.

“Not recommended, highly overpriced..for the money better alternatives”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Went here with a guest and my wife. Been told not to go there..went there out of curiosity..menu was developed by an exchef of la petit maison..my favo restaurant in Dubai.

Food:
To be honest not advice-able to go there..it's just opend and they really have a long way to go!! Food was average for the price you are paying for..better alternatives. Ideas where good but execution by kitchen staff horrible.

Desert where good had cheesecake and tiramisu..coffee horrible they should talk to supplier RAW coffee and get a good barista training.

Chairs are really uncomfortable if you are seated on a normal table..they try to squeeze 4 persons on a 2 persons table..bad!

I was not able to complain I went there with a guest was a bit ackward to complain in his presence.

Advice don't go..better alternatives for the same money like Zuma or La petit maison both in the DIFC building!
