Our salad arrived with a live fruit fly. The facility must be free of insects and up to local food standards. Some foods are ,apparently, premade and then later heated to serve. Therefore you cannot skip ingredients. At the price paid, food should not come...More

Very good service and good sandwiches. They also have good pastries and coffee. To be in Dubai, it's cheap.

Went to try this Paul again and left with a bitter taste in our mouths. The food itself is good, this time we opted for breakfast. However, the restaurant was unable to provide local water and only had highly expensive Evian water. As per UAE...More

Paul’s Café experience was amazing, specially the caramel sticky coffee was like a piece of heaven, and the pistachio croissant from the extensive viennoiserie was scrumptious. The Fleurbelis and the chocolate macaroon with berries was pure indulgence. The prawn and avocado toast was made to...More

Since the founding of a small bakery in the French town of Lille back in 1889, the passion for authentic bread making and quality ingredients has remained in the family and been passed on through generations. And so, until today, the love for everything fresh and for good is at the heart of every PAUL. In addition to the bread and viennoiserie which is baked several times a day, the menu at PAUL boast a good selection of light meals and main courses, as well as desserts and fine pâtisserie. Over time, PAUL has become a successful restaurant business with more than 450 shops in 24 countries and has become renowned for its ‘rustic-chic’ ambience - a true celebration of the French ‘art-de-vivre’. We look forward to welcoming you!
