Description: Le Petit Pontoise...Aussi is found just steps from Notre Dame and serves food made from only the very freshest of produce. A good choice for gourmets and food lovers, here you can indulge in snails cooked in a creamy brie sauce, cheese fondant with honeyed almonds and walnuts or foie gras and apple chutney for starters followed by a fabulous fresh fish of the day or for meat lovers the delicious veal with ravigotte sauce; coq au vin or chateaubriand with pepper sauce. Dessert should not be missed either. Le Petit Pontoise...Aussi also has a terrace that is great for al fresco dining.

Outstanding food, at reasonable prices for Paris, at classic Bistro . English menu available. Well priced house wines that was quite good. Friends went next evening on our advice and loved it.

A bit pricey but good tasting food. The place was busy but service was quick. Hubby had a perfectly cooked medium rare steak and I had veal liver. Of course, the sauces make a difference.

Food was solid. I had the veal chops with pesto, which had excellent flavor but was a very small portion size. The service needs work though, as both the male and female waitresses were very cold and inattentive. If we needed anything, you basically had to hope the waiter would make eye contact with you. All in all, good food... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by my cousin (who had eaten here a year earlier) who knew we were on a budget for our honeymoon but wanted to enjoy one "big" meal. It was perfect! The atmosphere was wonderful, the staff were friendly and spoke English, and the food was delicious. We ordered the Parmesan artichoke and escargot for... More

We were seated outside and enjoyed a nice crisp white wine as well as the appetizer shown below and our entrees. A neighborhood gem, this spot makes you feel as though you have lived in the area all your... More

This little gem is always an enjoyable experience for my husband and I year after year. The atmosphere is charming and the food is consistently delicious and interesting. I might add the waiter helping us was not only lovely and polite but extremely easy on the eyes;) great wine knowledge too.

Entres even for lunch were in the 25-30E range so it is not inexpensive, but it was really good.My husband had the pig cheeks which were delicious it is served in a pot like a stew but I would eat here again just for...

Whenever we are in Paris, we make reservations at Le Petit Pontoise. Located on a small side street off of the quay it is the perfect neighborhood restaurant. The food and the wine selections are perfect. The ambiance is warm, and feels like you are sitting in someone's large dining room with family. Even our grandchildren (ages 5, 7, 9,... More

We found Le Petit Pontoise in our Lonely Planet book because we to explore the Latin Quarter one evening. Le Petit Pontoise was a cozy and small treat we found in the area.

This restaurant is awesome. We had the best lamb shank and foie gras in our life. The price is a bit on the high side, but well worth a visit. Recommended.
