Chef Paul Pettini is a true student of the culinary arts. Previously, he was head chef at Jardin Des Sens, a French restaurant by three-star Michelin chefs Jacques and Laurent Pourcel.

Over the course of his career Pettini also at Hotel Marinca & Spa by Chef Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (MOF) Jean Luc L’Hourre, and at Michelin-starred restaurant La Bouitte by Chef Rene.


Café Cardinal’s à la carte menu is a tribute to classical French cuisine, albeit with artful, contemporary aesthetics.

At breakfast, its marble counters are laden with first-course and dessert selections both visually appealing and sumptuous. The restaurant embodies the spirit of an all-day dining menu, with as many as a dozen main courses on offer and made-to-order.

The Restaurant

Flooded with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows, Café Cardinal’s impressive atrium dining space features an elegant landscape of gorgeous leather furnishings by Visionnaire paired with Italian marble and set against palatial, hand-laid mosaic art installations.

Decorative masterworks include distinctive chandeliers and light installations by Venini, including a colourful trio designed for Venini by Brazil’s famed Campana Brothers, made of an eclectic array of repurposed glass fragments and copper wires.
