The Top 5: French Restaurants in DXB

1) Bagatelle


A decadent affair

Consistently voted one of the best French restaurants in Dubai, don’t be alarmed by Bagatelle’s price point because the food is definitely worth it. The place only opens for dinner and can get quite busy on the weekend, so reserving is a must to ensure a spot! The dishes on offer are true works of art, inspired heavily from traditional French cuisine and stepped-up for the demanding Dubai diner.

2) La Serre 


Perfect for breakfast 

La Serre is located in the heart of Downtown Dubai and is split into 2 separate areas – the Boulangerie and the Bistro. They have a wide offering for savory lovers and those with sweet teeth but if there’s one thing worth going for, it’s the breakfast! They have one of the most delicious selections of French Viennoiseries and Patisseries in Dubai, and the breakfast options are all to die for! The ideal place for a treat-yo-self kinda morning!

3) La Cantine du Faubourg


An evening out

This lively place combines art, music, and good vibes to create their unique French touch. They have a DJ every weekend, and their outdoor seating makes it a perfect spot for Dubai winters. The place is a full-on sensory experience that aims to create a unique dining adventure. You should give their Saturday brunch a try!

4) Bistro des Arts


The perfect lunch

Bistrot des Arts definitely has that French je ne sais quoi factor. They’ve managed to recreate the quintessential French experience in the heart of Dubai. Without trying too hard, they keep the atmosphere casual and cozy. Perfect for healthier options, and a place where local Frenchies congregate – so that’s gotta be a good sign!

5) Big Fernand


A burger? Why not! 

This spot holds a dear place in my heart as I was introduced to it when I was in Paris, so you can understand my joy that Big Fernand has finally made its way to Dubai, where it promises to bring the distinctive taste of French burgers to our city of skyscrapers. The burgers are affordable, made with high-quality ingredients, and you can totally customize your orders!
