Fouquet’s Abu Dhabi

Take a romantic journey to Paris without leaving the capital. Dine at MICHELIN-selected, Fouquet’s with their special Valentine’s Day menu, “Amour à la Carte”. The menu is pretty fancy too, as it has been crafted by Culinary Director Chef Balveer Balkissoon, in partnership with Michelin-star Chef Pierre Gagnaire, and features a mix of authentic and modern French specialities.


The five-course set menu starts with an amuse bouche of smoked stracciatella, avocado sorbet and Oscietra caviar, followed by a choice of Wagyu beef carpaccio with foie gras and rice cake or marinated sea scallops with sweet prawns, yuzu and cucumber dressing. For the main event, you can select either roasted blue lobster with brown butter and pan-sole, or the Wagyu beef tenderloin with black truffle mashed potatoes, green peas, raspberry and black truffle jus. Following this is a traditional French cheese board with chutneys, and to end the night, you'll be served a bespoke “Dessert des Amoureux” featuring a double-heart shaped cake, filled with vanilla and rose cream, fresh litchi and almond sponge.


Every course can be paired with a choice of French wines, specialty cocktails, mocktails and premium beverages. You can choose to dine al fresco under the Louvre Abu Dhabi dome or inside the restaurant’s dining room.

LPM Restaurant & Bar

The French Riviera-inspired restaurant has introduced an exclusive dessert for Valentine’s Day, called Tarte Tropézienne à la Fleur d’Oranger.

The original sweet treat was a light brioche sliced in half with an orange blossom and vanilla cream filling and pearl sugar decorations. LPM’s take on the treat features a buttery brioche filled with orange blossom diplomat cream and is topped with craquelin and pink pralines. You can also pair it with LPM’s exclusive Valentine’s drink, a Cognac & Champagne Colada.
