Top shelf experience but expensive

I'm somewhat torn on how to review Le Petit Cafe. On one had the food, wine and service were excellent, however; it comes with a steep price tag. I don't think there is a thing that I could say negative about our food. I'm just not sure if there was value there.

We had the same problem as other TA reviewers, we couldn't get a table at the restaurant next door so decided to give this one a try. It turned out that Le Petit Cafe was a really good restaurant indeed. I liked the atmosphere and the service very much. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us excellent service. We... More

We walked past one afternoon and were able to get a booking for the same night and were definitely not disappointed! The service was slick, with staff extremely knowledgeable about their menu and able to make recommendations. The presentation and the flavour of the dishes was fantastic. Even though we didn't really have room we ordered dessert and enjoyed every... More

The 3 of us managed to get a last minute booking here last night. My goodness, what a beautiful meal! Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was spot on. We had the beef fillet, steak tartare and the prawn linguini followed by chocolate fondant and crepes grande marnier.

Staff very polite service slow but good. Foie gras served cold and lacking flavor just like a block of butter. Hake very over cooked and absolutely no texture just mush. Although dishes may look good they generally are overcooked and lack seasoning and textures. Wine okay and dessert was very good. Overall for €145 for two persons disappointing.

We were steered to Le Petit. The menu is very French & very... More
