Great Restaurant

I go here reasonably often and am never disappointed. Food is superb, and always a great atmosphere. Service can be rushed but only to be expected and always friendly.

My wife and I ate here on a Friday evening, having wisely booked ahead by a couple of weeks. The food was absolutely superb. The entire menu was tempting and we didn't see any food being brought out that we wouldn't have liked to try - French "comfort" food at its best. The French onion soup for an entrée was... More

Great place for a good value "early bird" menu, generous French portions. Town centre location close to harbour Equally good for couples and larger groups. Popular with local residents and visitors. Café next door for coffees, lunches etc

This dining experience is very popular with locals & I'm sure most visitors would agree. The food is excellent, beautifully presented & the portions are adequate. If you judge a restaurant by quantity rather than quality then perhaps this is not for you. All the staff are French; they are most pleasant as well as efficient. When booking an 'Early... More

There's never a quiet time, it seems, at Le Petit Bistro these days which has created its own problems. Booked a table for four at 7.30 one evening recently and turned up early at 6.45 but couldn't be accommodated and nowhere to sit, even in the adjoining café. This is a problem with the two-session booking system. Not really a... More

Nice, but I prefer Le Petit Cafe next door, for informal tapas style dining. A little cramped, but otherwise fine.

I always enjoy eating here when I have all the time in the world. So long as you're not in a hurry and patient you will love it too. Good food & good value for money. Service is slow so take it or leave it.

Consistently excellent food delivered in very typical French style. I love Le Petit Bistro I love the food I love the wine recommendations it is one awesome place for dinner. The only gripe I have is that the bistro style seating can be on occasion spine crippling uncomfortable. You're better off going in a four and requesting a comfortable booth... More
