Although living in the Midlands we are fairly frequent visitors to Topsham which boasts an excellent selection of eateries for such a modest-sized town. We’ve tried on a few occasions to get a table at La Petite Maison but as others have said, the venue is small so booking is essential and we’ve always left it too late … until... More

We ate at La Petite Maison last Thursday night with two friends ,none of whom had been there before. The menu was extensive with good balance between meat/fish/vegetarian. The staff were extremely friendly , with the owner/chef coming around towards the end of the meal asking for feedback on how we/did we enjoy the meal. The food was brilliantly cooked... More

It's rare that I place a Restaurant in such high regard but with La Petite Maison it has to be placed as my No 1 place for a great meal and great all round service and atmosphere. Having been lucky enough to eat here several times in the past it has never failed to live up to the high standards... More

Really can't fault this restaurant. It's a small venue (so booking is essential) on the main street in Topsham. I've been a number of times for lunch and dinner. The food is great and they use fresh local quality ingredients. Big portions too. The restaurant is family run and has a lovely friendly atmosphere.

My husband and I had been here a few times before, lastly being Aug 2012 when our meal was a bit disappointing after previous very good visits. Anyway we went again few days ago and it was back up to our expectations and we had the nicest meal out we have had in a while. The crab risotto is a... More

This is our forth visit and if anything the place is getting better. The menu is excellent, the food delicious and the staff are first class. Our only complaint was it was very hot and a little stuffy, but hey, we cannot blame them for the weather! If in town looking for a quality meal look no further, the best... More

Yet another visit to our favourite restaurant in Topsham! Once again the ambience, care and attention to detail is impeccable. The food and service is first class. Doug, Liz and team you always make us welcome and eager to return. If you ever visit Topsham you must visit this wonderful restaurant.

The strap line says it all really. It was fine. Service I would say poor given the price....desert came to the table and we had no cutlery...ordered Red and White wine but were only given the one wine glass. Food on the whole good. Just didn't feel it had the attention to detail we expected given the price.
