Charming bistro frontage: tick. Charming belle epoque tiles: tick. Small discrete tables: tick. Small discrete waiters, in grey aprons: tick. Daily specials and formule written up in chalk on blackboard brought to your table: tick. Menu that should be listed as an historic monument: tick. Paté with prunes, roast salmon with potato purée: tick. Brie de meaux, on the formule for the day so should be just perfect, was cold and was sent back. The replacement arrived adorned with walnuts, but still chalky in the interior, not gently runny as it should be. 45€ on a 3 course lunch with two glasses of wine, was paying for past glories, but if you prefer the sound of other reviews then for value and bourgeois charm I suggest you go for lunch, alongside the local business lunchers, rather than dinner.

Wow this place is good, a proper taste of Paris. last time I went it was so authentic there was even an American in there (Paris seems to be full of Americans). If you get the chance go there, it's really good!

We ate at Le Petit Retro during our recent visit to Paris. The food was incredible, the service was good. We enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant, and we tried traditional French food for the first time. We highly recommend that you give it a try.

Enjoy.

This place was highly recommended to us by the hotel staff. We got there a little before 9 pm to a full and lovely atmosqhere filled with locals. The walls are covered in creamy yellow and warm brown decorative tiles. A small room with cozy tables. Our waiter was so fun! Spoke just enough English and with my limited French we ordered everything they were already out of. Ended up with a fabulous meal and extra special dessert! Get there early for the Sea Bass and creme brulee! You won't be sorry!

My husband and I ate dinner here and everything from the ambiance to the service, to the food was outstanding. The poached egg with chorizo cream was beyond good. We enjoyed main dishes of blood sausage and cote de beouf and loved every bite. The creme brûlée was creamy, thick and with that toothsome crust of caramelized sugar you can't get enough of. Ignore naysayers and check it out!
