La Petite Maison

Ever-popular French restaurant

Time Out Says

If you’re a foodie in Dubai you’ll have heard of, if not have visited, La Petite Maison. Consistently excellent, this is one of the flagbearers of Dubai’s dining scene.

The restaurant in DIFC is always busy, usually with a post-work crowd hovering around the bar, too.

Tables are close together, the vibe is bustling and there’s a buzz of chatter in the air. It feels fancy, yet not forced, and you’re sure to have a good night as well as a good meal. Whether you want to impress a business client, visiting family or a loved one, it will come up trumps.

Service is a well-oiled machine, staff know their stuff and the menu, so you’re as well asking their advice.

Ingredients are super-fresh and dishes are classic. The much-talked about lamb cutlets deserve the lip service. Perfectly pink and buttery soft, they’re the best in the city. The octopus carpaccio is an interesting dish if you’re a seafood fan, while the salads are always excellent too.

Throw calorie counting to the wind and indulge in a dish of Dauphinoise potatoes – creamy, rich and indulgent, they’re as dreamy as they sound.

Vegan? No problems. La Petite Maison has even introduced a special plant-based menu (which is possibly surprising for a cuisine based so heavily around meat and dairy).

If you love French food, La Petite Maison is a must-try.
