Time Out Says

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

It’s elegant, yet relaxed, lively, yet sophisticated, cool, yet unpretentious.

In winter the expansive terrace is a wonderful place to take a seat and enjoy a drink and a meal. The twinkling lights are delightful and the vibe is upbeat and fun. The interiors are super-cool too, with crimson furnishings, white walls and on-trend black bathrooms.

However, it’s not just the venue that makes this one stand out. The food is also incredibly good.

The tender, tasty steaks are expertly cooked, while the octopus is some of the best we’ve had in the city – tender, well salted and perfectly charred. The tangy yuzu dressing is a hit too.

Don’t miss the coquillettes des enfants, a deliciously creamy mac ’n’ cheese-style pasta, lifted by a drizzle of truffle oil – making it anything but childish.

The restaurant also does an impressive Saturday brunch, with heaps of fresh, buttery pastries, classic breakfast dishes such as eggs Benedict as well as signature dishes, which is an excellent way of trying the menu.

If you’re looking for a lively spot to party late-night along with a meal, this is also one for your list. Cantine ticks all the boxes in the best
possible way.
