Encased in a beautiful two-storey glass facade, La Serre consists of a traditional Parisian boulangerie on the ground floor and a bistro on the first floor.
The boulangerie opens early morning with freshly-baked breads, viennoiserie and a light breakfast menu. Lunch, salon de the and dinner are all served throughtout the day.
Upstairs, the bistro offers a Mediterranean inspired menu available for lunch and dinner, and a bar serving a broad selection of wines and expertly mixed cocktails. There is also a chef's table, where the sounds, smells and ambience of the kitchen are all involved in the dining experience.
Vida Hotel, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Blvd. Downtown, Dubai

Noor ShawwaReview on Apr 10, 20145Loved the food. The atmosphere is really nice too. The service was great. One slight negative thing was that some of the plates smelled a little funky (eggs), but they replaced them immediately when we told them. The gnocchi is amazing. So is they shroom risotto. The eggplant bruschetta is just brilliant! Highly recommend the restaurant. Reply

AlexReview on Dec 15, 20131terrible service, awful staff and poor food. Avoid this placeReply
Dany FarhaReview on Dec 08, 20134We had a very pleasant family Friday lunch, ambiance is nice, location in downtown Boulevard is easy access although the valet on the way out can take a while. Very La Petite Maison but not quite as perfect :) and the boulangerie downstairs on the ground floor looks lovelyReply

We were at the chef’s table, where you can interact directly with the chefs serving the table throughout.The entire evening was an experience we will not soon forget. A great French Bistro in Dubai.

Is La Serre the new La Petite Maison?
A striking illuminated glass boîte juts out from the sexy new Vida boutique hotel in Downtown Dubai Once inside, an organised frenzy greets us with chefs at play in the open-plan kitchen, a bar buzzing with punters and a near full restaurant on a Thursday evening Now that’s what I call atmosphere We’re in French-Mediterranean La Serre, Dubai’s latest hot opening and Izu Ani, the opening chef of La Petite Maison’s new baby
I ask for a window table on booking, partly for the sparkly view of Dubai by night but mainly to steer away from the smoke engulfing the bar area And so the hostess guides us to a corner window table à deux Bag that spot especially if you’re on a romantic date
The menu categories are all in French so if you’re not au fait with the lingo you may struggle translating Here’s FooDiva’s guide – pour grignoter (to nibble), pour commencer (to start), brut (cold), chaud (hot), enrichissant (enriching – pasta or risotto in this case), la mer (sea), famille (family – meat) and la terre (earth – veggie sides) Dessert is simply dessert
A tomato rocks up sliced with a drizzle of olive oil as an amuse bouche At LPM (the affectionate name for La Petite Maison) the tomato sits ripe on the table for you to chop and garnish as you wish We opt for an Italian vino from the San Leonardo winery…... Continue On FooDiva
