Fantastic food and just amazing atmosphere - it is not rushed or hurried - just perfect - a great experience and so enjoyable. My Birthday treat from my daughter and son in law was excellent - truly faultless - I so hope to visit again. The staff and food could not be faulted. Thank you.

What an amazing restaurant near the Hampton Court Palace. I was craving for French food for a while and I made the best decision in going to Le Petit Nantais. The service is excellent (definitely 5 stars), ambiance is superb as there is a lady who plays an accordion with songs at your request. The timing between courses is spot... More

We visit this restaurant at least 5 times a year as we love the charm, ambience and importantly the food!! The chicken supreme has the most amazing sauce closely followed by the prawns which are so good we always order more sauce so we can dip the bread!! Fairy lights, candles and an accordion player on Saturdays makes for a... More

Perhaps not the place to go if you are on a tight budget, but if you want a real treat night out without having to trek into central London, then this is the place to go. The menu is not huge, but once they start rolling out the specials your main problem will be narrowing down what to have. I... More

Took Mother in law to our favourite restaurant for the first time for lunch!! The rib eye steak was perfectly cooked, garlic prawns delicious and they had crab for the fussy one! Our daughter had moules and ate the lot. Friendly service and it was declared the best restaurant she had ever been to.

Randomly wandered into this restaurant on a Saturday and found it a quite good restaurant. Although I believe that typical of some of continental restaurants in UK, this also is geared to accommodate British clients rather than being purely French but the quality of food was very good indeed as well the service. A clean and nicely decorated environnement with... More

This is a real local gem. Authentic French cuisine from JP in the kitchen combined with friendly and knowledgeable service from his wife and staff sets the restaurant up perfectly. We have now been twice, but tried 4 times, so make sure you book at weekends. The food is worth planning for in advance though and is not cheap, but... More

JP is an old school French talent in the kitchen, his focus is dedicated on providing some of the best tasting food in Surrey - and his understated approach is testament that his... More
