In Dubai, French cuisine is usually on opposite ends of the scale. It’s either very high end and all about the luxury or simply bad. Tolosa French Bistro is one of the few that actually sits perfectly where most of us need it to be, reasonably priced and great tasting.
Tolosa Bodega is refreshing in both its simplicity and warmth. The cuisine is based on their roots in Southern France with some Spanish influence. The new lunch menu offers a mix of a la carte or set menu for those of you who have a limited amount of time to spare during lunch breaks, etc. It took the staff a bit of explaining to make me attempt the Tolosa Burgers (anything with duck liver on it is an automatic pass for me), but the taste was amazing! Every dish was built with it’s own unique taste. I can see why this bistro is becoming a favorite among the many French expats and lovers of French cuisine. After looking over the wine menu, I already knew that Tolosa is one of my new favorite places for lunch… I look forward to returning for dinner!
Tolosa French Bistro is located in Souk Al Bahar on the 2nd floor in Downtown Dubai. For reservations and more info head over to TolosaBodega.com or call 044539220
