Maison Mathis

Brasserie in Dubai

Tucked away in the Arabian Ranches suburb, this European-style brasserie is a favourite with expats, especially at the weekend, so be sure to book ahead. Open for every meal and even later, Maison Mathis has a plentiful menu and a buzzy atmosphere. The wood-fired pizzas are spot on. The bar shows live sports, and the whole place is entirely kid-friendly.
