From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010This traditional French bistro may not be situated in a five-star hotel, and the drinks menu may not include overpriced bottle of Voss water, but this is to its merit. The restaurant fills a rare niche: it offers well-prepared Parisian classics in a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere at a reasonable price. Though there is the odd hiccup (an order of mashed potatoes proved somewhat gluey), much of the repertoire satisfies. Duck confit makes for a rich, juicy main, while an order of lamb is well-cooked and generously portioned. While the low-key setting means it’s not really the type of place to bring a first date, it could be a perfectly acceptable option to bring a spouse of many years for something low-fuss and well-executed.
