We had to order 3 times, as each time they came back and told us that they didn't have any left. To add insult to injury, when our order eventually arrived my chicken was dangerously undercooked. On the plus side, we weren't charged for it after we complained.

despite the global reputation of Paul cafe, but service was really bad at this one. I visited it on Sunday 12 Feb around 9 pm. Despite it was not crowded, but waiters arrived to our table 20 minutes after we came in, and after several trials from our part to grasp their attention.

We can't say enough good things about this cafe! Ate there twice this week, and going back for a third and last meal tonight. Truly incredible breads and pastries. Delicious soups (normally served in a bowl made of bread!) and salads (some served in a wrap/crepe/tortilla.

I recently had lunch at Paul Cafe in Marina Mall. This restaurant has a very good selection of food, especially the salads. If you have a sweet tooth, the cakes looked delicious. It is reasonably priced and the service is good

Good option for breakfast only! Would not advise to try their steaks.. If you are craving for English breakfast- go for it!

You pay to sit down. Ridiculously overpriced, but you can sip your coffee very slowly, be seen, and imagine you are in Paris.
