Our Story

La Cuisine de Manou has been making a name for itself in Abu Dhabi since it opened its doors in November 2014.  Offering the capital’s residents, a different way of dining with a menu filled with homemade wonders and delights.


We love food! – making it, serving it and of course eating it! - and we believe this shines through our products and services, allowing us to deliver culinary excellence to our clients.  What sets us apart from the rest, is our 100% homemade menu, which offers tradition and authenticity with every bite. 


La Cuisine de Manou provides a full catering service in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and has experience in a variety of events from small soirées like private dinners and baby showers
to larger events such as weddings and corporate gatherings.


Our team is passionate about creating the perfect setup for your event, with exquisite presentation and attention to detail. We can also supply custom-made menus, floral arrangements, tables, cutlery, crockery, glassware and linens to compliment your event.

La Cuisine de Manou also opened two cafés, one in 2021 located at Alliance Française in Khalidiyah and another one opened more recently at the beginning of 2024 at the American Community School in Saadiyat.
