Lovely Parisien ambience but hopeless service. We popped in for coffee and croissants. We waited ages to order, then waited ages for the coffee but no sign of the croissants so after 20 minutes we paid for what we had had and left - it seemed they have plenty of staff (we saw at least 4) but no management!

We had to wait for a table as we had not booked. It was well worth the wait The food is fantastic. The service brilliant. My wife had fillet steak and I had scallops. I tasted the steak and it melted in my mouth. The atmosphere is French and friendly. Loved it and can't wait to visit again.

I had heard this place was good, but I didn't realise that it was this good. All of the staff speak to each other in French and the food is excellent- Beef tartare was the best I have had in ages as was all of the other food- especially the floating islands. will definitely return.

We.did not book but were welcomed in to a lovely table at the back of the restaurant. We were told politely we would have to leave by 8pm but this was not a problem as it was only 6pm and we had come for the Early Bird menu. This was £13.50 each for three courses. We each had a glass... More

Excellent food mid price range. Delicious choices and great for fish, which our friends raved about, although the coq au vin was rather salty. Would not let this put me off going again as it was a great atmosphere.

Having spent a glorious week in St Peter Port we ate in many different restaurants but none that compared with Le Petit Cafe/Bistro. The service was excellent, Max looked after us extremely well. The food was absolutely delicious and Alexandre runs a tight ship with everybody in the right place at the right time. Even though it was completely full... More

Have been to PB many times in the past and some of the best meals ive had have been there. However more recently weve seen portion sizes shrinking to the point where the competition give better value for money. I would love to see it return to its former glory!
