Le Petit Bistro
Take one glance at the powder blue façade and you could be standing on any street in France. Inside, you’ll find a cosy, welcoming restaurant flying the tricolore for fabulous French food.
‘The cuisine is very French traditional,’ says house manager Delphine. ‘Our coq au vin has been selected by the Independent magazine as one of the 50 best dishes in Great Britain.’ Other specialities include frogs’ legs and Côte de Boeuf. The french onion soup is just delicious and one day I will try a different starter!
Specials change daily and head chef Mickael is always searching for new seasonal dishes. The menu is full of fresh local fish, typical rustic French food such as pigeon and rabbit, all supplemented by Foie gras from Paris, wines from Burgundy, Jura, and the Loire Valley, Calvados from Normandy and Armagnac from Charentes.
In short, a wonderful continental evening awaits you at Le Petit Bistro. ‘Ooh La La. C’est magnifique,’ as they now say in St Peter Port. Book early. Tres early, to avoid disappointment.
You can also eat at Le Petit Café, next door to Le Bistro, which serves French snacks and meals throughout the day.
My kids love it here as they are often given a few little extras to taste, the latest being frogs legs. I love the service here as all the waiters are french and they know how to ensure you are being very well looked after.
