    I’ve been to Petit Pois three times all for special occasions and couple for surprising my partner. Never disappointed! Dishes well balanced, honest portions and very good quality. The nice french twist on Sunday roast is one of the nicest things I remember of this place, all with nice ambiance, accurate wine list and great products.
    I’ve just discovered they will open as a take away! This fill my heart of hope for coming back to gourmet life!

    A fantastic little restaurant that is serving up French classics with a modern twist. The fish soup is to die for and such incredible value. Was very excited about the menu before I visited and was not disappointed when I ate there. Definitely worth a visit and their lunch set menu is an amazing offer

    Just been to this lovely little restaurant for a pre birthday treat, fantastic company(hubby), food, service and drinks and incredibly reasonable. Unusual in the sense it is French tapas but that just makes it better as you can try more! We had frogs legs, salt cod fritters, mackerel escabeche, aged sirloin steak, artichoke barigoules, scallops followed by a trio of creme brûlée and macarons. Fantastic!! Highly recommended, we will be back!
    I have been waiting for this treasure to open and it was worth it. Congratulations to an amazing place what a delight!
