A quaint place with friendly service, a cozy atmosphere and above average food. The wait staff was able to accommodate English speaking patrons and even had a separate menu printed in English. A nice prix fix menu with quite a few choices and price ranges between 19 and 26€. The food was artfully prepared and delicious. I'd recommend this place... More

Went there for a romantic dinner after seeing good recommendations but it is not worth the visit. The waiter we had was far from being friendly. We had a spider in the wine glass so the waitress just spilled the wine she poored to my glass out, gave me a new glass but didnt compensate us for the wine. They... More

We went for dinner here after a recommendation from one of our party who visited a few years ago. The food was excellent, my only complaint would be that my main was possibly a little rich. I had the Tartare de moules, frites entree and the Young Pork Cheeks with honey and red wine sauce, mushrooms and bacon, scalloped potatoes... More

We decided to hav a half bottle of white wine and one cheese board to share. This was a little strange as we were given a... More

Spent a weekend in Paris with some friends and one of the evenings we had dinner at the Petit Prince. Everything was great, the food, the service and the ambience. Very Parisien.

We use this restaurant every time we visit Paris and this was the first time we've been disappointed. Many of the good things remained the same; it's a very attractive and typically Parisian bistro with a good atmosphere and the staff are always pleasant and efficient. The problem was the choice of dishes on the various menus. We live in... More

Food was good although we had to wait for way too long. Once the food was ready it took them way too long to serve, resulting in cold dinner. It took them more than 2 hours to serve a starter and a main course. Once we asked for the bill they overcharged us with 17EUR. The arragont, pretentious woman taking... More

This was dinner with three friends that provided an excellent and very Parisian (in the most agreeable sense) meal. The decor is pleasing in a risqué sort of way and, by Parisian standards, there is a generous amount of space between tables. The waiters were helpful in finding an excellent table for us in the end gallery. Starters all excellent... More

Part of the charm of Le Petite Prince is actually finding the restaurant. While our last visit was 15 years prior, there is still a charm in finding this gem off the beaten path on a pedestrian passage. Granted there are better choices in Paris concerning quality of food and pricing is OK, not inexpensive nor overpriced. Yet come here... More

This was my first time back at Le Petit Prince in 22 years, so I admit my frame of reference may be a bit off. Service and food was average -- nothing wrong or terrible, just no indications that the people running the place have much dedication to providing a great dining experience. And for those hoping for lots of... More
