Excellent meal

We had such a good meal of French onion soup and three small steaks cooked in different ways along with a brilliant chocolate pudding and a nice claret. What more could we ask.

There was no room in the Bistro but staff were very accommodating and set us up with a table in the adjacent Cafe. All very helpful with menu choices and everything performed with polite friendliness and charm. My partner is gluten free and the staff could not have been more considerate and helpful. There is an early evening menu which... More

Still my favourite place on the island and the place my friends invariably ask to go to when they visit. Fantastic food and atmosphere. The early bird fixed price menu is particularly excellent value. If you go for dinner I would advise you to book.

My wife had read about the bistro and we decided to give it a go. As soon as we walked in we liked the place. The atmosphere was good and the staff were friendly and got us a seat quickly even though we hadn't booked. The decor was good and the service was excellent. We both had onion soup to... More

A place of great charm. Terrific food and customary attentive service from the French staff. Smart but informal.

I must declare my interest. This is the easiest restaurant in the world to review. We live in Guernsey but travel widely throughout the year, especially in France. Le Petit Bistrot consistently presents uber excellent, authentic French food. The special extra is that it never stands still, always delightful, ever inventive and better than anything you can find elsewhere. You... More

Four of us had pre booked - given its popularity with the locals I guess pretty essential. The atmosphere was brilliant, very French as you would expect, the staff very attentive and both food and wine of high quality. Lobsters still alive and kicking brought to the table. Definitely worth a repeat visit

Pretty decent reliable food, with a french accent, served in a heavy, and a caricature of, French atmosphere. Service is good, if sometimes a little slow. Whilst standards are high, the food is not as good as they think it is, but reasonable value for money (in Guernsey terms) and a bit inventive. Comfortable setting, with shabby chic decoration.
