I am a regular traveller to France spending most of the summer there. Living in Guernsey I often visit Le Petit Bistro for a meal.

A really French experience with a great menu and a truly enjoyable atmosphere. The food is always tasty and the staff are exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Real value for money especially during Tennerfest!

Visited just before Christmas always excellent value and delicious food. Staff and owner always remember you and make you feel valued. Menu is not extensive but is fine for lunch. Service quick but not hurried. One of our favorites.

Quick and exactly as billed. Steak frites and salad arrived almost before we did. Sometimes the service can be a little below par but the food always makes up for it. Highly recommended for a swift bite to eat.

Good value but victim of its own success the service was not great and the drinks are pricey. Nice French atmosphere

The only thing that lets Petit down is the service, but even then you don't really mind as it's typically French! Food is always fantastic, I love popping in for their express lunch or for a drink after work with friends. Lovely, cosy place. My Grandmother who was French was in her element there. Highly recommended.
