    We love Le Petit Pontoise. We have been coming here for years, every trip to Paris, and it never disappoints. The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent.

    Excellent service in a nice area. Lovely waitress, we had wonderful escargot and frog legs, but my lamb was a bit tough though the sauce was superb. Price is excellent for the quality.

    Close to a perfect little bistro. We were here under prior ownership and it was very good. Even better today. Warm welcome, superb food, what else could you need? Small, a bit tight, but superb. Everything we had or saw at other tables was superb.

    One of my favorite local restaurants in Paris. Never miss a chance to come for artichoke tart, delicious! The green beans with shrimp in a vinaigrette is also wonderful.

    I hesitate to review this restaurant as well as I should - it's a neighborhood gem and the best dinner we had over our four nights in Paris. We will definitely return when when we have the privilege of visiting Paris again (hopefully soon!). Thank you Anna for the best service and delicious food!!

    We live in New York and try to visit Paris once a year. During these visits, we always dine at Le Petit Pontoise. We find the food and service remains excellent year after year. We are never disappointed

    This place is the perfect place for people who are looking for high quality food in a proper french setting. Both the steak and the lamb dishes were succulent. The presentation was spot on. Can’t wait to come back again!

    Our first meal in Paris, and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent (highly recommend the asparagus with morels), the service was welcoming and fast and my (pregnant) wife’s virgin mojito was so good that I grabbed one for myself. A little pricey compared to what we would pay for dinner back home in the US, but the food and the ambiance more than make up for it.

    Great. Had a table on the street and enjoyed sidewalk traffic. Had escargot , chicken and duck. The dessert was a chocolate and ice cream goodness. Very friendly.

    This once was a very authentic French place. A victim of its own success, it is now dominated by foreign patrons: one hardly hears any French spoken. Food is good, though it used to be better. Wine is expensive and poorly picked. Still worth the visit.

    Too pricey for nice, average food. Friendly staff and cozy, but loud atmosphere. 130€ for two people, shared a foie gras (homemade, but not as powerful/tasty) Then lamb and pig cheeks and a botlle of Beaujolais. Still water was 8€!! So no tips...

About the restaurant

-Le chef, présent depuis 14 ans, prépare une cuisine savoureuse inspirée des recettes de son enfance dans le Périgord

-La cuisine est préparée à la commande avec des produits frais et de qualité

-Ambiance "bistrot parisien"

-Une belle cave à vins servis en bouteille, au verre ou à la ficelle

-Un menu déjeuner à l'ardoise qui change tous les jours en fonction du marché

Tous les jours et depuis plus de 10 ans, un bouquiniste des quais de Seine vient déjeuner au Restaurant LE PETIT PONTOISE. Le chef lui prépare un plat spécialement pour lui en fonction de la cuisine avec un verre de vin ou un verre d'eau gazeuse. Il ne choisit jamais son plat mais est toujours très content des inventions du chef. Le prix de son déjeuner n'a pas varié depuis 10 ans. Il est l'âme parisienne du restaurant : il a côtoyé quelques grands noms de la chanson française et des artistes variés. Merci à lui de venir tous les jours au Petit Pontoise !
