La Petite Maison

A lovely taste of France in DIFC

  • La Petite Maison
Equally impressive for lunch or for dinner, La Petite Maison continues to live up to its rep of being one of the finest French spots in town. The menu is extensive and endlessly appealing, and could easily lead to some serious over-ordering were it not for a staff honest enough to advise when greed is getting the better of you (a rare trait among restaurants across the world). So, you’ll just have to make some tough choices and make a follow-up reservation to sample the rest later. Our suggestions would absolutely include the lamb cutlets, which are the finest we’ve had in this city, the spectacular burrata with tomatoes and basil, the octopus in lemon oil, the mushroom risotto and the lobster tagliatelle – each dish being served by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nestled in the ever-expanding hubbub of DIFC, competition for La Petite Maison springs up regularly, but right now it seems to have them well under control. La Petite Maison

    Le Petite Miserable Service!

    No doubt about the beautiful ambiance of the nice restaurant.It is highly recommended as a hot french dining spot.The main problem of this restaurant is the female reservation agent who takes guests booking(Louise).Extremely rude and unprofessional. gives you sense of being in a hurry! and doesn't give a chance to the calller to speak!

    I will never recommend this restaurant to anybody!

    I feel sad to do so!

    Thank you

    Would you go back to this restaurant?
    - Wildly overpriced.
    - Tables too close so you hear the business conversations from people next to you and struggle to have a conversation of your own.
    - Staff are rude.
    - dishes brought out at different times rather than together, so I had a side but not main and dining partner had a main but no side. Kept waiting then food was cold.
    - Food was basic and nothing special at all.

    If anyone recommends this place to me I know to ignore their opinion on food matters.

    Best for:
    Just by looking at the sheer number of reviews up above, you know its a resturant that soooo many people have 1- tried 2- liked/disliked enough to come back and write a review.

    Im one of the recurring customers of this resturant as well. Why?
    they sell the best french food in town. Amazing burrata, super fresh lobster salad, finger licking lamb chops ( i recall they call it lamb shank on the menu) and to-die-for pain perdu!

    Although its a little pricey and noisy, but hey anything for GOOD food :)

    I and my wife had dinner yesterday night. The best food and service in town. Very attentive staff and professional. Will come back for sure.

    Would you go back to this restaurant?
    It’s been 8 months since I visited Le Peitite Maison last time and I must say our last night dinner was quite disappointing.

    I invited my partner for dinner to celebrate his birthday and arranged the booking a week in advance. Upon reservation I requested for a birthday cake/tart to be arranged and also provided the name to be written on it. The hostess kindly confirmed this request.

    The dinner started quite bad after finding a piece of plastic paper or plastic packaging, in crab/lobster salad (definitely something not eatable).

    Upon ordering the dessert the birthday cake never arrived and nobody acknowledged that.

    By choosing this restaurant I expected to have great birthday dinner but there was only disappointment. I don’t think it’s right to feel this way especially when you pay AED 1,500 for dinner for two.
