A Festive Kick-start to the New Year at Bistro Des Arts

Celebrations galore at Bistro Des Arts with Weekly Raclette Nights and Galette des Rois for children

Bistro Des Arts, the famous French eatery situated on the Marina Waterfront of Dubai, plans to welcome 2016 with a wide range of festivities draped with an element of surprise. Patrons are welcomed to the weekly Raclette Nights and the Epiphany celebrations with the traditional Galette des Rois game for children.

Raclette Nights

From the 6th of January, the Bistro will offer Raclette Nights every Wednesday, between 8pm and 10pm, transforming a typical evening into an exciting time of togetherness with family and friends. At the Bistro, guests can dine in the glowing warmth of the French Bistro with a selection of meats, freshly baked French bread, as well as a range of unlimited house beverages. The meal is BDA-26 (LR)priced at AED 245 person and will also offer Bistro Des Arts’renowned blueberry pie, Tarte aux Myrtilles.


Bistro Des Arts will celebrate the French tradition of Epiphany during the first weekend of January, with individually prepared Galette des Rois, a puff pastry layered cake. A small toy which is baked inside the pastry will infuse excitement into the Epiphany celebrations which are ideal for families. Guests who receive the lucky slice with the toy in it will be crowned the King or Queen of the Bistro. Observed on 8th and 9th of January at the Bistro, this ancient practice also calls for the youngest child of the family to guess who the lucky winner would be. While a single slice is priced at AED20, the Galette which serves 6 people is priced at AED100.
