la residence french restaurant dubai

La Résidence Restaurant & Lounge is inspired by Parisian luxury brasseries.

If you are yearning for that quintessential French fine-dining experience then we know just the place right French restaurant in Dubai.  Located at Raffles hotel, La Résidence Restaurant & Lounge is inspired by Parisian luxury brasseries.  The setting is smart with dark leather banquettes, pristine white tablecloths and art adorning the walls. It is basically a piece of Paris right here in Dubai-with a typical piano bar atmosphere.

The menu has been created by Michelin Star chef Frederic Vardon and boasts a robust selection of classic French food made with seasonal ingredients.  We began with a French favourite the Fines de Claire Oysters (95 AED)-perfectly balanced in texture and taste, we were quick to eat them with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of vinegar.  The highly recommended Burgundy Snails (80 AED) came wrapped inside a flakey pastry.  Rich in taste, this French delicacy is a must-try.

Our order of the Milk-fed Lamb with Citrus Fruit (195 AED) was succulent and tender and the citrus added a refreshing and unexpected burst of flavour to the entire dish. We also tried the Macaroni Cheese Old Vintage Comte that was served with Truffle Ragout. Aromatic and absolutely indulgent, it was possibly our favourite dish of the night.

We wrapped up the meal with a classic light and airy Souffle. Delicately flavoured it was the ideal way to end the grand meal. The service was friendly and efficient.  The added bonus that would definitely have us come back is the live singer playing at the piano as it really sets the ambiance.

Oh! and last but not least, they offer a Weekly Parisian Treat – Every Wednesday until the end of August 2015 from 7pm a 50% off a la carte menu for ladies and 4 complementary drinks when dining! Reservation is a must. That’s one night that definitely cannot be missed and you will be sure to find us there!
