LPM Restaurant & Bar

DIFC legend serving Niçoise-inspired cuisine that needs no improvement

Time Out Says

One of Dubai's best-known French restaurants, LPM Restaurant & Bar (formerly La Petite Maison) is as synonymous with fine-dining in the city as garlic and parsley with escargot.

Little wonder it’s perennially popular in fiercely competitive DIFC – the artist that may as well be known as Dubai International Food Centre.

Seasonal menus flit in and out with, well, the seasons, but otherwise it’s a reliably fixed list, and those best-sellers aren’t going anywhere.

Burrata may be a boring pick these days, but this is still the finest in town. Ditto the escargot de Bourgogne.

And don’t even contemplate not ordering the crevettes tièdes à l’huile d’olive. Because it turns out money can buy happiness after all – and it tastes a lot like warm prawns in olive oil.

While you can argue over the tables being a touch to close together (think of it as Parisian, non?) and the service occasionally bordering on the snooty (again…), this is, categorically, the best French food in Dubai.

Dishes are served (as most things are these days) sharing style, to the table, and arrive precisely when they mean to.

Rib-eye steak is worth splashing out on, but for a red meat fix the lamb chops are just as good, and one of the restaurant’s most renowned dishes.

It may be nothing new on the scene, but LPM needs no reinvention.

C’est magnifique.
