“You need a little French but a lovely little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

We loved the look of the restaurant and as it was so close to our hotel, we decidsed to give it a go. This isn't on the tourist trail so the chalk board menu was all in French and we used all our limited French to order but we managed.

The food was freshly cooked and interesting and I particularly enjoyed my veloute (soup) to st art and my dessert. The three course fixed price menu at 31.50 Euros was good value.

“Not bad..... but not to good either...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

We found this restaurant in the ViaMichelin.
That kinds of set the expectaions.
In our case our expectations where to high unfortunately.
The service was good after a few insidents. The menu...... we got the feeling that the where serving premade food that had been made from frozen product......didnt expect that.

“Avoid, Not good food and expensive!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

We were looking for a restaurante for our first night is Paris near the Hotel since it was a exhausting day. The Le Petel looked fine from the outside and with decide to try. The restaurante is too small, wich may not be bad.
The food was definitely not good, all dishes seem to have the sausage and were not tasty. In the end we payed 40€ for just two main.
When i return Paris, definitely will avoid this place!

“A True French restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2011

If you don't want to eat American French Foods in the Tourist area, this is one. A small restaurant with warm and cozy atmosphere. The menu doesn't have English, but they have a special hand writting English menu. The waitress and owner spoke broken English but always had a lovely smile. I think I am going to the right place with real French foods. The food was fabulous from the starter to dessert, it is not far away from the metro station, Vaugirard. They are a Michelin Guide recommended restaurant, and is well deserved.

“Good choice if you are in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2011

A full house in the evening. Small restaurant so set your expectation on service. French only menu (chalk board). Veal is excellent. All food are great as the reviewers mentioned (besides veal, we had duck and lamb) but you may find memorable ones in other areas.
