Stumbled across Le Letit Retro trying to find a restaurant near Victor Hugo that was open at 7pm. It looked like it was closed, but you enter through one of the windows. The staff were brusque, and they cram all the foreigners as close together...More

Nice atmosphere in this good French bistrot. Has a good and not expensive lunch menu. Had a very good soup and lobster ravioli (with a bit too much sauce for my taste, but that's French cuisine). Friendly staff.

Upon entering Le Petit Retro (which was recommended by a Parisian) I was awestruck by the gorgeous, original decor. It was difficult to take my eyes away from the decor and concentrate on the menu. The food is very authentic and absolutely delicious. Wine list...More

When in Paris I often stay in Le Parc Trocadero and over time I have been trying out the surrounding restaurants. Tonight I tried out Le Petit Retro and was very happy to have done so. Why is that? Because of the food. I was...More

The restaurant's main draw is its great atmosphere. Their moderately kitch retro decor, tables crammed in a small space makes it look like a neighborhood spot. Which it is not. It is packed with visiting locals and tourists alike who all enjoy the tasteful decor...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
