A small restaurant with strong French ambiance. Our starters, chicken liver salad and boudin noir, were a bit 'ordinary'. Our main was tournedos Rossini served with fresh foie gras (not canned) and served with a superb 'madiera' sauce. A good restaurant but dont expect anything too extra-ordinary.

What a treat this place is. I have always loved French cuisine for a variety of reasons. 1. Their chefs seem to have a passion for the whole dining experience that is seldom, if ever rivaled (at least going by all the places I've been in the world).2. Their food is astonishingly imaginative. It may sometimes even be simple, but... More

We have been visiting Nerja a couple of times each year for the last 10 years and we always eat in Au Petit Paris a few times during each visit. In all the years I have never had a dish that was less than perfect and the service and attention to detail is superb. The classic french cooking really shines... More

We visited this wonderful restaurant twice as it was so good. Our first visit we were lucky to sit outside and enjoy our meal,The next time and our last night in Nerja, the weather was very wet. Graciously, Alain squeezed us in on this fully booked night. Again, the food was superb.

We happened upon this restaurant on a Monday evening in late October when the weather was warm enough to sit outside on their screened terrace. Although only one table was occupied when we arrived, the remaining tables were soon taken. We enjoyed tasty food (duck breast in sweet & sour sauce and duck confit) served in a friendly but professional... More

We have been wanting to go to Au Petit Paris for years but have always been waylaid by 34 or Bakus. We eventually made the effort and booked. On arrival we were asked if we wanted to sit indoors or out. As it was a bit windy we chose to sit in and were shown to our table. The two... More

We had decided on making this restaurant our special night of this holiday, above the usual 34, Oliva & Bakus because of the past experiences whereby we felt this restaurant could do no wrong for both food & service, we were so wrong! First although we'd booked, our table was not apparent, no problem, these things happen! Later a table... More

We visit here a lot! It's s little gem, both waitresses make sure you have a great night! From taking time out to chat with you to making sure your wine is topped up. The food here is delicious we love the goats cheese & foie gras as starters, we've tried nearly all the menu! So we would recommend everything!... More
