The brand-new Sunday Lunch – Good Goût de France, reflects elegance and a love for gastronomy, all what France has been renowned for.

The experience also showcases specially imported French terroir products, such as Foie Gras or Escargots prepared a la minute at some of live cooking engulfing the air with that divine scent of deliciousness.

As guests enter through the grand entrance of Habtoor Palace Dubai, to the first floor and enter BQ French Kitchen in style, a welcome beverage is served as a welcome mixer and accompanied by scrumptious pass around canapes. To add to the ambience, Maria, Habtoor Palace Dubai’s resident vocalist entertains guests with a selection of classic and romantic tunes.

Sophisticatedly dressed servers in blanc-bleu uniforms with beret hats reminiscent of French Artisans escort guests to their tables, covered in exquisite French designed tablecloths and cutlery to remind them of a chic dining occasion at Champs-Élysées. Freshly sourdough baguettes welcome the guests as soon as they take a seat to the table with their own personal attendant to explain the concept of dining À la Française.
