La Residence restaurant and lounge is a French elegance and accessible haute cuisine which is located at Raffles Hotel, Dubai.
The first thing that I loved about this place once I walked in was the decoration of the restaurant. The fascinating paintings on the walls, big chandeliers, leather sofas, and the black piano in the corner make the room so glamorous and classic. For me as a seafood lover, Michelin starred chef Frederic Vardon offers a rich variety of seafood dishes which are perfect for sharing, and other main courses of meet and chicken which are absolutely delicious and made to perfection.
What I ordered for Appetizer were: Oyster, Albacore Tuna Tartar, and Burgundy Snail which was recommended by our kind and knowledgable waiter.
Main Courses were: Rib Eye Steak (of course at medium temperature) and their most famous dish Macaroni and Cheese with Truffle which was my favorite. The service was great and our waiter knew the menu very well and he was great at recommendations.
In general, the quality of the food and ingredients in everything we ate were on point and the lovely atmosphere of the restaurant marked an unforgettable experience. I cannot wait to go back again!
