Established in 2010 but with a decor that evokes a French bistro from the Golden Age of Cinema. Lots of interesting photographs, artefacts, rustic charm and all that. All of the dishes on the diversified menu and the entire wine card are straight-forward classics and all are French. Coq au vin, escargots, confit de canard, the lot. Attentive and friendly... More

Always drop in when in St Peter Port. Always entertaining with a good menu and good wine list. Can't go wrong here.

The quick lunch here is great, very simple with small steak on a board with fries and /or salad, with a glass of wine. Perfect for when you do not have a lot of time to spare

We went here for coffee. It is an attractive French style cafe. Lots of ornaments and decorations, small tables, bentwood back chair type decor, setting the style. It seems to have a good reputation for food but we went only for coffee. Pleasant staff. We were made welcome and promptly served good coffee of our choice. I don't know if... More

We had been trying to get into the Petit Bistro for ages as it is always booked up and were surprised to get in on a Saturday night for the Tennerfest. Unfortunately I had not read the small print - not their fault - but it is not served after 6.30 so anyway we chose from the A La Carte... More

The restaurant has an authentic bistro feel and the food was very good if not in the fine dining category. Service was friendly enough if a bit haphazard.

We had a lovely meal here, during our weekend stay in Guernsey. The dining area has a great atmosphere and feel to it, you definitely know you're dining in a French restaurant. The service was good and the meal was paced just right, throughout. Whilst perusing the menu we were presented with fresh bread, butter and a lovely chicken liver... More

We enjoyed both the tennerfest and the a la carte menu on this occasion. Extremely tasty meals, fabulously presented. We have never been disappointed when dining at Le Petit Bistro.
