Your travel plans to the South of France may have been put on hold, but that doesn’t mean you can get a taste of the French Rivera right here in Dubai.
Located next to Shimmers, the beachfront Mediterranean restaurant is serving up a mix of classic and modern French-Mediterranean food and boasts views across the Arabian Gulf.
Highlights on the menu include red tuna crudo with black truffle, fresh octopus cooked over a wood-fire and French Dover sole with crushed potatoes.
There is also a selection of scrummy-sounding pasta dishes like half lobster with homemade linguine, while meat-lovers can tuck into the restaurant’s signature wood-fired beef entrecôte served with green pepper sauce.
Those with a sweet tooth can end the meal with classic sweet treats such as vanilla mille-feuille with brown butter ice cream, French toast served crème brûlée-style and pineapple tarte tatin.
The pop-up restaurant will also be hosting brunch every Friday and Saturday from 1pm until 3pm.
Packages for the “Bleu, Blanc, Rouge” brunch start for Dhs295 with soft drinks or Dhs395, which includes mixed drinks.
French Riviera can also be experienced as part of Jumeirah Al Qasr’s staycation and daycation offers, which includes lunch or dinner at any of the three Mediterranean concept restaurants: French Riviera, Shimmers and Rockfish.
