Restaurant La Cantine du Faubourg

The flagship Paris restaurant with the same name has been open at rue de Faubourg Sain-Honoré for over 10 years. Its Dubai branch has happily preserved the atmosphere of the French capital, with paintings on the walls and regular private viewings. During daytime, the place hosts the employees of nearby business towers for lunch, and in the evenings, it’s filled with amorous couples and connoisseurs of contemporary Paris projects. Some order several appetizers to share, and others wait for the perfect Rossini steak – all to the accompaniment of a live piano or a DJ set. By the way, the menu offers more than the French classics: there is Veal Milanese and Lobster spaghetti, among other things. A nice bonus is the view of DIFC and skyscrapers of Sheikh Zayed Road: such panoramas go especially well with the cocktails.
