    Love this place... Spoke to a nice gentleman on the phone when booking who advised me on the specs of the offer - it includes everything except the set menu, appetisers and sides. The restaurant was busy on a Thursday with a nice bustling atmosphere. I'm quite a fussy eater, but the menu was plentiful and varied and so it was difficult to choose. A pal and I ordered 3 courses; French onion soup and the warm goat's cheese salad; chicken breast with ricotta in parma ham and a salmon and mushroom crepe; and two creme brulees, with a bottle of house red. We couldn't fault a single thing which passed our lips. And all that for £42! Coupled with attentive and friendly service, I could not recommend this place enough and shall certainly be telling my friends and returning soon :) "

    Such a pleasant surprise! The rose wine was delicious, the food was spectacular, and the staff was attentive and kind. With the dim lighting and Edith Piaf singing in the background, it was almost like being in France. We started with one of the salads from the specials menu: grilled halloumi, chorizo and aspargus with a harissa dressing. It was divine. I had the special chicken with roasted potatoes (couldn't get enough of these), and my partner had the t-bone steak with potato gratin. All of it was sensational. Truly. And when the discount arrived- we almost felt guilty paying so little for such incredible food. Highly recommend this place- we will be dining there again for sure! "

    We used the taste card for the first time, for lunch on weekdays.
    The food was really good and the service really helpful and attentive!
    We had mains, desserts and wine.
    Service was fast and nice!
    TASTECARD:
    They explained us what was allowed to get with the tastecard deal.
    My only concern is about that: on the bill the deal was on the cheapest dish selected.
    Is that a general rule or is the restaurant choice? (Obviously is better for the business of the restaurant.. )
    Anyway the experience at Le Petite Auberge was great! "

    There are many restaurants on Upper Street but the food, service & atmosphere here keeps this lovely restaurant at the top of the list. There are enough tables to usually be accommodated but the layout is such that each table still feels relatively personal. The food is well prepared & presented & the specials are always worth a try. The owner & staff are helpful, polite & friendly & I would happily recommend Le Petite Auberge to all my friends & family. Check out the new crepe section of the restaurant too... "

The food is delightful, the stuff is friendly and the location can't be best. It is a must dine before the theatres (just across the street or down the road) AND they had recently expanded and now offer also the Crêperie. "

    Service was good, but food was very average. Frozen vegetables. Potato dauphinois seemed to have been cooked in the microwave. Cheap and cheerful, not for a foodie. "

    " Amazing service and amazing food. The staff were so friendly and helpful especially the manager, who went out of his way to ensure our evening was enjoyable.

    I had been previously in the week for the first time with my boyfriend for my birthday and was astounded by the excellence in the quality of food and attentive staff, so we decided to take my dad and sister when they visited London at the weekend.

    We went early Sunday evening and again the food was divine and the atmosphere was cosy, rustic and inviting. I will be telling everyone about this little gem and will be back again and again myself. "

  • Amy said: "Just how French restaurants should be
    Having read positive reviews, we decided to visit Le Petite Auberge on a Tuesday evening as our tastecard debut. The restaurant has small tables but not too closely packed like some other French bistros, so you can expect reasonable privacy. Customer service was excellent, from the time I called to book, to being welcomed to the table and finishing the meal. We did not notice any awkwardness at all because of tastecard use. We were just treated like anybody else. The food is quite distinctly French, with fresh bread (refillable with no extra charge), tenderly cooked lamb shank and duck confit in generous portions with matching sauces and a good helping of potatoes. I saw dishes for other customers passing by and they all looked yummy and in reasonable portions. We were so full after bread and two courses (I'm always considered a big eater...), sadly had no room for any desserts! Will certainly return and try other dishes! "

    Love this place... Spoke to a nice gentleman on the phone when booking who advised me on the specs of the offer - it includes everything except the set menu, appetisers and sides. The restaurant was busy on a Thursday with a nice bustling atmosphere. I'm quite a fussy eater, but the menu was plentiful and varied and so it was difficult to choose. A pal and I ordered 3 courses; French onion soup and the warm goat's cheese salad; chicken breast with ricotta in parma ham and a salmon and mushroom crepe; and two creme brulees, with a bottle of house red. We couldn't fault a single thing which passed our lips. And all that for £42! Coupled with attentive and friendly service, I could not recommend this place enough and shall certainly be telling my friends and returning soon :) "

    TASTECARD:
    They explained us what was allowed to get with the tastecard deal.
    My only concern is about that: on the bill the deal was on the cheapest dish selected.
    Is that a general rule or is the restaurant choice? (Obviously is better for the business of the restaurant.. )

    Having read positive reviews, we decided to visit Le Petite Auberge on a Tuesday evening as our tastecard debut. The restaurant has small tables but not too closely packed like some other French bistros, so you can expect reasonable privacy. Customer service was excellent, from the time I called to book, to being welcomed to the table and finishing the meal. We did not notice any awkwardness at all because of tastecard use. We were just treated like anybody else. The food is quite distinctly French, with fresh bread (refillable with no extra charge), tenderly cooked lamb shank and duck confit in generous portions with matching sauces and a good helping of potatoes. I saw dishes for other customers passing by and they all looked yummy and in reasonable portions. We were so full after bread and two courses (I'm always considered a big eater...), sadly had no room for any desserts! Will certainly return and try other dishes! "

    This is one of my fave restaurants. The food is excellent and so is the service and the staff are always helpful and friendly. I also felt fine about asking to take food home when I ordered too much. "

    " It's a shame that this excellent bistro has no reviews yet. The food is simply divine! The blurb on this site is pretty much spot on: I will be returning very soon to try out other dishes. "
