Located in Mercato Mall, Paul is a sprawling French café spilling out over the ground floor. On the menu you’ll find a varied selection of dishes including soup, sandwiches, tartines, salads and heartier main courses. Of the main courses, the fillet boeuf is a mouth-watering cut of steak served with vegetables and hand-cut fries. Another tasty choice is the faluche poulet, a marinated grilled chicken sandwich with salad and potato wedges. Both dishes are delicious and well presented with perfect portion sizes. When it comes to service, the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, while being keen to make sure everything is fine with the meal. It can get very busy at Paul, but it is one of the best cafés in Mercato Mall.
Open Sun-Thu 9am-11.30pm, Fri-Sat 8am–midnight. Mercato Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road (04 349 9115).
