While visiting friends in Branford over the weekend we were treated to a marvelous dinner at Le Petit Cafe for our birthdays (mine last week, my wife in May). The dining options made it difficult to choose, but everything was delicious and we all thoroughly enjoyed everything we had, from the Pate and Ahi tuna appetizers to all of the... More

Very nice and quite place. The have a manu for the day. Food is fresh. The cheff will come and great you. We went for my wife's birthday and no regrets. Is a bit expensive but is worth it. Is very small so I recommend to make reservations. JG Branford, CT

We met a friend for dinner at Le Petit Cafe. After a few failed attempts because of scheduling problems we finally went. And it was worth it. After a friendly greeting by the owner/chef we were waited on by a very attentive but not pushy waitress. Every dish we ordered was amazing. The pâté, rabbit, and my rack of lamb... More

I’ve been to this restaurant twice and I can honestly say they were the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had – by far! I live in the town and this restaurant’s excellent reputation bewilders me. Most people I know in the area have also had negative experiences. The first time I tried to make a reservation for the upcoming Saturday... More

Our experience here is not unique, it's what this guy has been doing for over a decade. We were part of the first seating, so we arrived an hour or so early to explore the town. If you come during the early summer the beautiful trees in town will have flowered a beautiful white. It was an amazing day. The... More

For my birthday dinner, I wanted to dine here and I was thrilled to get reservations for a Saturday evening. I arrived at 5:20 for a 5:30 reservation and my date arrived right at 5:30 as the restaurant opened. My date was beautiful and she looked classy and elegant. We entered the smallish cafe and a woman took our coats... More

This cute French restaurant is an absolute gem of Connecticut. It's hands down the best dining experience you'll find in the State and certainly in the greater New Haven area. Every time I'm in the area I have to make a stop here. You'll be started off with warm fresh organic bread that has the perfect texture and crust. I... More

Chef Roy always delivers!! We have been several times and always leave impressed, full, and wanting to go back for more. With limited weekends off working in the restaurant business we tend to be very selective on where to go for a dining experience. From begining to end the food quality is excellent. Simple flavors, flawless techniques and quality ingredients.... More
