A.O.C. French Brasserie
In the global race for culinary excellence and distinction, France has long been in the premier league – and in Dubai, French cuisine doesn't come any finer than at A.O.C. French Brasserie. Enjoying a prime location within Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach, this luxury restaurant delivers incredible standards of cuisine in a stylish, sophisticated environment. With impeccable service and a warm welcome from its attentive and knowledgeable staff, this is surely a place to relax and indulge yourself.
What's in a name? A.O.C. stands for appellation d'origine contrôlée - an official French designation by which its government bestows certifications for certain iconic and distinctive French products. These include meats, honey, spirits, butter, cheese and – of course – wine. It provides a guarantee that the most rigorous standards and highest quality have been adhered to, and that products have been created using authentic, traditional methods with only the finest ingredients from their home region. You can be sure, therefore, that when any restaurant is so confident as to put the letters A.O.C. in its name, it is making a bold and defiant statement about its own high standards of quality and excellence.
The name of A.O.C. French Brasserie certainly makes some bold promises, but the question is: does its menu and quality match the high standards implied by its name? The answer, without a doubt, is that this wonderful restaurant will exceed all your expectations. The food is impeccably prepared and immaculately presented, delivering a rich culinary experience that will excite your taste buds and tantalise your senses.
One of the most remarkable things about A.O.C. French Brasserie is that it delivers such unapologetic excellence without being stuffy or overly formal. The atmosphere here is remarkably low-key, proving that fine dining and a comfortable, friendly vibe need not be mutually exclusive. The restaurant offers all-day dining through breakfast, lunch and dinner, and provides a choice of à la carte and buffet options – delivering a wonderful range of high quality dishes. There's a variety of special themed nights, as well as a Friday family brunch – always a popular time to pay a visit.
