We live locally and hence are regulars at this fantastic family run restaurant. Atmosphere amplified by romantic white lights and warm welcome. Food always excellent with specials well worth a try. At weekends you're treated to an accordion player which adds further to the atmosphere!

My son's booked this restaurant for us to celebrate my birthday and we had a fantastic time. Great food, wine and service within a surreal setting in the heart of East Molesey. I can see why this place is so popular and it is worth making a reservation, particularly on Rugby match days. The staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive... More

A real French restaurant which has been known to my wife and I for many years. The standard has been maintained for all these years and has never let us down. To be recommended.

Fantastic food and just amazing atmosphere - it is not rushed or hurried - just perfect - a great experience and so enjoyable. My Birthday treat from my daughter and son in law was excellent - truly faultless - I so hope to visit again. The staff and food could not be faulted. Thank you.

What an amazing restaurant near the Hampton Court Palace. I was craving for French food for a while and I made the best decision in going to Le Petit Nantais. The service is excellent (definitely 5 stars), ambiance is superb as there is a lady who plays an accordion with songs at your request. The timing between courses is spot... More

We visit this restaurant at least 5 times a year as we love the charm, ambience and importantly the food!! The chicken supreme has the most amazing sauce closely followed by the prawns which are so good we always order more sauce so we can dip the bread!! Fairy lights, candles and an accordion player on Saturdays makes for a... More
