Thanks for the great evenings!

Dined here many times over the last decade- great news for Doug and Liz on retiring but very sad for us and everyone else who will no longer be able to enjoy the wonderful ambience and of course the best food in Devon. Very best wishes to you both and thank you for the great evenings we have had... read more

The last dinner at our favourite restaurant as it closes this month due to a well earned retirement. It will be sorely missed.

I have bee coming here since it opened! I have always had the best food, wine, service and atmosphere here. The husband and wife team NEVER disappoint. How anyone can consistently keep to such amazing standards is beyond me! We have always saved this little gem for our family get togethers and important milestones! Visiting once or twice a year,...

So sorry that you have decided to retire! However you did us proud with probably our last meal with you. The fillet steak was one of the best I have ever had. Good luck and we hope you have a very long and enjoyable retirement. Alan and Linda xxx

Having been raised in Exeter, but lived away for over 20 years, it's always a challenge to find somewhere to experience great food. Le Petite Maison is one of those places. There's a warmth to the place, the service is excellent and the food is great. It was a pleasure to find there!

Last night was our first visit, but sadly our last opportunity to come to this fabulous gem of a restaurant. The owners are retiring after 16 years and they are fully booked up until the end. We have heard many things about La Petite Maison over the years and we only live in Exeter. I am now kicking myself as... More

We were looking forward to going to this restaurant. I had read the reviews and website it sounded really good. We booked for a special occasion. The restaurant was warm friendly and nicely decorated. The service was friendly and helpful. The food very nicely presented started and sounded like it would be very tasty. Warm crab risotto with prawn and... More

We have dined at La Petite Maison a few times both with family and with friends. Without exception, the food, service and atmosphere has been second to none. Very reasonably priced bearing in mind the quality of the food and service received, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Petite Maison to anyone wanting a quality evening of food and drink.... More

This restaurant can only be rated as outstanding !! The staff welcome you as if you've known them for years and nothing is too much trouble. The food is amazing and to die for. Definitely a restaurant to recommend.
