Skipped your holiday to the French Riviera this summer? Twiggy by La Cantine has you covered

Twiggy by La Cantine is a slice of the French Riviera in the heart of Old Dubai, conceptualised by the masterminds behind style-set favourites La Cantine, Ninive and Lana Lusa. A bustling beach club by day and romantic restaurant by night, Twiggy by La Cantine is the alfresco dining destination of dreams. Sunset views? Tick. 100-metre infinity pool? Tick. World-class cuisine? You bet.

The restaurant is the epitome of laid-back luxury with bohemian, wanderlust-inducing interiors punctuated by 60s-inspired abstract art – an homage to the restaurant’s namesake, supermodel Twiggy – as well as airy linens and plenty of rattan, while sun-worshippers on sunbeds line the lagoon below.

Internationally inspired with a South of France soul, the extensive menu boasts a selection of hot and cold starters, seafood pastas and heartier fresh-off-the-grill options for a chilly winter’s evening. The generous portion of burrata with pomegranate jewels is a must before tucking into mains and dessert – don’t miss the light-and-lemony lobster ravioli followed by the pineapple carpaccio and zingy passionfruit sorbet.

Though Dubai has no shortage of beach clubs and fine-dining establishments, Twiggy by La Cantine serves up more than just exceptional cuisine; as the sun sets over the skyline, even long-term Dubai dwellers will have the pinch-me moment usually reserved for out-of-towners. Whether you dine on the sun-drenched terrace after a day spent poolside or visit for date night, you’ll be planning your next visit before you’ve wrapped up dessert.
