Two of us went here for dinner. Everything was perfect. We were warmly greeted and seated by the proprietor. The table settings were most attractive with linen tablecloths and tiffany-style table lamps which set an intimate ambience.

We were given a complimentary amuse-bouche. For starters one chose veloute de asperges (asparagus soup €8.80), which was beautifully presented with 13 fresh green asparagus tips and a poached egg. The other chose pate de fois gras (€13), beautifully served and delicious. Served with fresh-baked bread.

For mains one chose carre d'agneau (€21), cooked to perfection and attractively presented and the other chose tagine of lamb (€17), which was very good.

We chose a plate of assorted French cheeses (€8.50) to share to finish off the meal.

We ordered from the a-la-carte menu and the meal was a touch on the pricey side but good value for the quality of food and service. Seperately there is an affordable set menu offering 2 courses for €22 or 3 courses for slightly more.

Overall a delightful meal with impeccable setting and service.

I've been wanting to go here for a while but haven't been able to for various reasons. This week I finally did and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious and the service just right. I look forward to visiting again.

Introduced to this restaurant by a friend. Food was delicious but service was slow. However I suppose we were on holiday and not in a rush so shouldn't dwell on this too much. Having said that the meal was the most expensive of our week in Nerja and better value is available elsewhere.

We have tried many of Nerja's restaurants, but none of them are in the same league as Au Petit Paris. The restaurant is tucked away in a corner of a tiny square at the top of Calle Malaga in Nerja, it is easy to miss. However, make the effort to find it and you won't be disappointed. The name gives away away that the cuisine is French (obviously) but it gives no clue as to the quality of the food and the service, it is simply the best in Nerja! To start, I had the sardines, followed by the chateaubriand and finished off by the tarte tatin, my wife had chicken liver pâté, followed by the rack of baby lamb ribs and finished off by the creme brûlée. We were both struggling to find words to describe the excellent quality of the food and the service. We have only visited this restaurant once, so we con only go by this one experience, but if this is the norm, then it is without equal in Nerja!
