La Petite Maison

Squaremeal Review of La Petite Maison ?

It’s now an international brand, but correspondents say London’s iteration of this Nice-inspired restaurant is superior for its light, fresh dishes. With a well-established buzz and a pale, clean-lined dining room splashed with colours of the Med, La Petite Maison “always feels special”. Starters double as small sharing plates that are true to their regional roots: a table laden with pissaladière, “fabulous” seafood carpaccio, sweet peppers in olive oil, sliced octopus and feta-topped ratatouille makes a transporting lunch. Mains might be duck glazed with orange, roast monkfish with spicy chickpeas or grilled lamb cutlets with smoked aubergine, while flourishes such as the fresh almonds served with a fillet of halibut show that the kitchen takes care with the details. Desserts may not reinvent the wheel, but warm chocolate mousse with malt ice cream will do just fine. In line with the food, wine prices exhibit a degree of ambition. “I could eat here every day”, confesses one fan.

Editor's pick This is my 4th visit to La Petite Maison, this time with 4 colleagues. I like the "sharing" concept in restaurants and even the "make your own tomato salad" from the ingredients on the table, a nice touch while eating their delicious baguette. We had lentil salad (with apple), octopus carpaccio, marinated beetroot salad, beef carpaccio, crab and lobster salad, salmon and guacamole, fried squid, roast monkfish with a spicy chickpea tomato sauce, veal parpadelle, duck glazed with...

Big dissapointment.

by   silver reviewer (27)

Apr 2015

We went on Friday night for dinner, Marinated salmon bland and dry,Carpaccio de Thon average at best, no seasoning what so ever .Baby squid lukewarm and chewy. Sea bass, lukewarm and tiny portion even though was a main dish. We also opted for pork as a main dish, nothing special , quite fatty and lukewarm ,Pommes de Terre Gratinées lukewarm. A real disappointment. Extremely annoying that chef cannot get hot food out of the kitchen. Our Pommes de Terre Gratinées came out first then our...

Expensive but delicious

I hadn't been to this restaurant for quite a long time, but it still delivers great quality food and service. Its not cheap, but we had a lovely evening, and so all in all it was worth the slightly painful hit to the bank balance!

I am really surprised how polarised opinions appear to be about this restaurant. This is the third time I have been here and each time I have loved the whole experience and would undountedly return. One caveat, however: make sure someone else is paying, since it is not cheap! The heavy brown velvet curtain creates a sense of anticipation prior to entry and the dining room itself is lovely, beautifully light and spacious, a perfect antidote to a dull November day. Being seated on one of the tables...

My review may seem severe but I can guarantee that it is not worth more! Context Birthday with my wife Positive points - Excellent lobster salad as a starter - Very nice sommelier/wine steward, wine was really good NEGATIVE POINTS (chronologically) - Small piece of bread in my glass of water (THEY put the bread on the table, THEY served the bread) and before I can have a sip they take my glass away, throw it…and do not even replace it (even though you pay the full bottle) – 1cm or celery salad...

My wife and I went to Le Petit Maison for our wedding anniversary after having heard great things from friends. Everything about the dinner lived up to our expectations – the staff were helpful and attentive, the food was fantastic and the wines were paired perfectly with our food. We had the crab and lobster salad to start which was simple, fresh and delicious. Followed by the veal chops and sea bass, both of which were flavoured and cooked to perfection. Topped off by the chocolate mousse and...

Context: A meal with a friend on a Tuesday evening, 7:30 table, we're both late thirties. The atmosphere was lively and the restaurant was busy, the service was excellent. The main event and the reason for going however (the food) was a complete letdown. We shared 3 starters and two mains and whilst each dish more or less represented it's description, each were…well…boring. The best you could say about each was that they were “ok”. Starters: The beef carpaccio was overpowered by it's garnish, the...

Anyone planning to visit this restaurant for the first time might like to know that you can pre-order your meal. This would have helped me last night when I turned up ten minutes late, to be told I only had the table for two hours and that some items on the menu take AN HOUR AND A HALF to prepare. My boyfriend and I were coming specifically to try the roast chicken with foie gras, which happens to be one of these 90 minute meals. Not only was it effectively impossible to have it during our time...

This dépendance of a chic Nice eatery does bring a little bit of Provence to London. Pity th atthe noise can drown out conversation at the table and the confused service – but food and produce are impeccable and it can add a ray of sunshine to a dreary day in Central London.

    If you like French food like I do then I&m sure you&d love La Petite Maison, a chic dining room that&s ticked my foodie boxes for all the right reasons.
    Hidden in a discreet mews in the heart of Mayfair with roots hailing from Nice, LPM brings cuisine of Southern France and the Mediterranean to London. They also have outposts in Paris, Cannes, Dubai, Beirut and soon Miami.
    London in Winter may not have the same ambience as the French Riviera capital but the cosy bistro brings a similar sophistication with its chic interiors. The place is smart and fancy enough for special occasions but it&s also quite relaxed...
