Serving traditional French cuisine since 1989. Le Petit Bistro experince is all about enjoying your favorite French cuisine in calming atmosphere with a slight tone of the romance in the air . The superior service will also leave you satisfied as well as full. The waiters/waitresses answer any questions, suggest meals and wine and are overall nice to talk to. Bon appetit et a bien tot ! - Jean Michel
