Time Out Says

First things first, La Cantine du Faubourg was crowned Best French Restaurant at our 2019 Restaurant Awards, so whatever time you’re heading here, you’re guaranteed an incredible meal.

However, it’s not just the superb food that makes this cool spot at Jumeirah Emirates Towers a top place to visit – the upbeat atmopshere, cool music and fun vibes means it’s a must-try.

In Dubai by way of Paris (fashion avenue 105 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, to be precise), this chic French eatery oozes French charm and class.

It’s elegant, yet relaxed, lively, yet sophisticated, cool, yet unpretentious. In fact, there’s nothing we don’t like about it.

In winter the expansive terrace is a wonderful place to take a seat and enjoy a drink at the al fresco bar. The twinkling lights are magical and the vibe is upbeat and fun, with a lively yet relaxed crowd enjoy the atmosphere and pretty setting.

In summer La Cantine is still well worthy of a visit too, as the interiors are super-cool, with crimson furnishings, massive sofas for lounging on, sharp white walls and vibrant art.

And if you are thinking about dinner – which you should as it took home a Highly Commended gong in our inaugural Best Late Night Dinner category at the 2019 Music & Nightlife Awards – don’t miss the tender steaks and simply stunning octopus.

If you’re looking for a lively spot to party late-night along with a meal, this is one for your list.

As one of the most chic spots in the city, La Cantine du Faubourg ticks all the boxes in the best possible ways.
