“Glad we found this place!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We were in Paris and were looking for a place to have our anniversary dinner. We took a chance at Le Petit Prince and could not have been happier. Both the menu and decor are eclectic to say the least. It's a little Parisian and a little mid eastern too. We both had something from the price fixed menu. I had a perfectly cooked lamb chop with a cheesy potato dish and my spouse had a veal stew that she said was terrific. We finished our meal with the apple tatin which was the best we had ever had (really).

“Fabulous finish to Paris trip”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

After trying a few different places to eat in Paris this was a recommendation from a local.
I couldn't have been happier with the choice to eat here on my last night in Paris.
The food was fresh and delicious, the service was great, the atmosphere was brilliant.
Dim lighting, the decor very old world Paris, and live music (jazz pianist) was a surprise bonus.
I am a fussy eater and the duck literally fell off the bone it was so tender. DELICIOUS!
Get someone to pin point on a map exactly where this restaurant is as it is a little hard to find, but definitely worth looking for!! Loved it!

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This cozy restaurant has fantastic food and fantastic service! They have a few fixed priced menu options which are very reasonable. The crime brûlée presentation was well done! ( and delicious !). Every time we go there we really enjoy our evening!

“A lovely meal”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Third time back to this charming restaurant in two years. Food, as always, generous, fresh and delicious. Quirky bohemian atmosphere, off the beaten track, and not touristy.

“We just finished dinner here, and I had to write”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I have used this site extensively, and feel I must give back. I do not want anyone else to be subjected to this restaurant. We have been in Paris for almost two weeks, have eaten in many wonderful restaurants, and had heard good things about Le Petit Prince de Paris. The only reason I did not rate it even lower was that the entree, their pate de la maison, was very good. We found the flavors to be too strong and odd. My husbands steak with pepper sauce was overly spicy. I ordered for my main dish the noix de coquilles saint jacques. I found these to be inedible due to their fishy taste. There was none of the sweetness that I usually attribute to sea scallops. When I was asked if the dinner was good, I told the waiter this. He spoke to the chef, and came back quite defensively, telling me that they were freshly bought this morning.
Ironically, a French woman sitting next to me, noting that I spoke French, asked me to look at her turbot. She said it was the oddest piece of turbot she had ever had and she knew her fish. She spoke to the waiter as well, a different waiter. He told her, "I can show you the bill. It is turbot and it was bought this morning." I thought it odd that both of us found our dishes to be unacceptable.
