If you have an appetite for delicious French food in a chic yet relaxed setting, look no further… 

Hidden away on a rooftop in the Mall of the Emirates, Eugène Eugène is a stunning oasis and greenhouse-inspired French brasserie.

Located on the second floor of the Kempinski Hotel, the licensed spot is the latest arrival from Rikas Group, hospitality masters behind the likes of Tagomago, La Cantine, and Mimi Kakushi.

By day, Eugène Eugène is the perfect space for an elegant lunch and coffee catch-up, and by night, the glass hideaway transforms into a captivating, candle-lit dining room ideal for late-night cocktails.

Drawing inspiration from greenhouses and market halls, the restaurant features hundreds of plants, a green marble bar, an inviting conservatory, an outdoor terrace, comfortable rattan sofas, and plenty of seating options to choose from.

The simple yet satisfying menu features traditional dishes with a modern twist, from fresh seafood to delicious meats, sharing style starters, and Mediterranean pasta.
