One of the best French restaurants in Dubai – Bistro Des Arts, Dubai Marina
Looking for a breakfast spot? Head to Bistro Des Arts, Dubai Marina and feast on all-things French. Their Pain Perdu (French toast) is TDF!
Tucked around the corner of Dubai Mall is this French restaurant and café that makes you feel like you’re in Paris. You can sit out on the covered air-conditioned terrace during this time of year, or indoors, where you can see your coffee and drinks being made while you inhale aromas from the kitchen.
Whether you’re just a croissant and coffee-kind of person, or someone who loves to indulge early in the AM, Bistro has something to suit all tastebuds. I judge a breakfast spot by whether or not they can make a decent eggs benedict. Here, the poached egg is just the right amount of runny, placed perfectly atop smoked salmon and brioche with hollandaise drizzled all over. Still haven’t decided which base I love more though – English muffin or brioche?
There’s plenty on offer for those with a sweet tooth too, from classic pancakes and porridge to granola with mango and coconut, tartine, and chia seed pudding. I remember tucking into their pain perdu on my last visit and ordered it again. It didn’t disappoint – doubt it ever does. This classic French toast is the perfect cheat-day treat. A thick brioche slice is served warm, with a crusty top, handful of berries and icing sugar, providing the perfect sweet – perhaps the correct word is divine! – end to a meal. For beverages, start off with fresh orange juice, followed by copious amouts of coffee. They serve a great cup, but that’s a given – they’re French after all!
