Café Des Artistes, the new luxury French dining destination opened it’s doors to the public in the first week of December. I had the pleasure of dining at this cafe last week. It is a place where French luxury and artisanal craftsmanship meet. This Parisian inspired urban cafe is a welcome addition to Dubai’s food scene.
Located at the trendy BOXPARK in Dubai, Café Des Artistes offers a dining experience that celebrates quality, exquisite design and handmade artisanal products.
Café Des Artistes offers French-Mediterranean menu in a sophisticated setting. It offers breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. It also offers an impressive selection of exquisitely handcrafted Patisserie and chocolates.
The decor of the cafe is tastefully done and it oozes glamour. Dining at Café Des Artistes transports you to a luxurious and chic cafe in Paris. Loved the exotic crystal chandeliers, elegant furniture and beautiful tableware. It has an inviting vibe.
They have an extensive beverage menu that includes non alcoholic wines, homemade lemonade, mocktails, flavored black teas, herbal teas and coffee selection.
Their food menu is not elaborate, but does offer a good selection of dishes. Being a vegetarian, I only ordered the vegetarian dishes. But I liked the fact that, upon request they could make changes in a dish. For example, there was a salad with prawns and they made it vegetarian by not adding the prawns.
Next we ordered couple of mains with a side dish.
Slow cooked Glazed Vegetable Crock Pot packed a flavorful punch.
Made with grilled porcini mushrooms, the Risotto was rich, creamy and extremely delicious.
The Pistachio Soufflé was a glorious nutty dessert that was fluffy, tasty and not too sweet.
We ended our lunch with a pot of fruit flavored tea.
Overall, we had a good dining experience. Impressed with the way they have blended the classic dishes in a contemporary way.
With the beautiful recently opened Atelier Des Artistes located next door, the Des Artistes brand offers a mixed use space that celebrates ingenuity and femininity, both modern and classic and totally unexpected in Dubai. Designed to appeal across generations, this is a space that pays homage to refinement and beauty, bringing together Dubai’s first urban atelier and dining space.
