    Thank you Laurent for welcoming us as new customers. Our previous two visits here were in May 2014 - just before Koots closed that June. We loved Koots and now love Le Petit for its friendly, quiet, impressive French cooking and wine fare, served with genuine pride. A most enjoyable evening; we will certainly return, next time bringing our Francophile daughter who is currently working/holidaying in Paris.

    Excellent menu, well balanced. Venison as a seasonal dish was on offer. Creme brulee is to die for as is the selection of cheeses. Well priced winelist with a immensely enjoyable Moulin a Vent and a smooth calvados to round off the meal. I highly recommend Le Petit Bistrot if you are in the mood for a French bistrot meal.

    An enjoyable meal, with little chats with Laurent Jouin himself, who is now managing in person here. Most dishes 'correct', but the beuatifully crispy crab croquettes could have a little more crab in them ( the aioli was good enough to keep through the meal), and the beef tartare was presented Italian style, cut not minced, with an egg but not really any other flavourings or spice. (I called for the Worcestershire Sauce I saw on the bar!). Tarte tatin was excellent, and my wife enjoyed her two profiteroles.

    We had the pleasure of introducing two friends to a new restaurant and an experience which impressed them very much. They repeatedly thanked us for such an enjoyable night. All four of us have been to many good restaurants, and Le Petit Bistro ranks as one of the best in every way

    In particular, we appreciated the quietness of the restaurant, even when it was full. A too-rare situation.
