Worth it. Your best bet is to plan ahead and make a reservation. This place has about 10 tables total and would struggle to seat more than 8 people at the largest table. However the food is epic and the service is perfect. We went here because of its review on trip advisor and it was right on.

What else can you ask for?!! Superb French local food, presented beautifully, incredibly fresh (the lettuce seems to have been picked just before being served) and very reasonably priced. They have set menu options which are a great value. The restaurant was full, so make reservations. The restaurant was very accommodating to fit us without a reservation. Thank you La... More

Went at about 8 o'clock, luckily got a table. The food was really good, three courses for about 24 euro. Highly recommend! The vanilla ice cream was the best ever according to my girlfriend...

We were seated outside on a great summer evening - only disturbed by a crowd of football fans watching the European Championships semi-finale at two bars across the street. The bistro itself - which it is - more than a real restaurant - is busy and popular, and the premise seems to be that things take the time they take.... More

We had a lovely evening at La petite idee. The staff was very friendly and the food delicious! We were also surprised over the low price for the high standard of food. Unfortunately we made the mistake of sitting upstairs which was quite sweaty, so I recommend to sit outside or downstairs. I can also recommend the "Gratine de ravioli"... More

My girlfriend and me we went to this restaurant on the suggestion of the receptionist in our hotel. It was a very good suggestion. The restaurant is situated in a street relatively close to the train station (maybe 10 minutes walk away from it). The restaurant is nicely decorated, indeed it seems very french. We took a "menu du jour"... More

We managed to get into the restaurant on a Sarurday night with a last minute reservation. Just how popular this place is could be witnessed by the fact that ten people were turned away while we were there because it was fully booked. The qualoty of the food echoes many other reviews of this restaurant. The attention to detail in... More

This was an evening out with workmates, so 8 of us, we fitted in OK, most tables are for 2 and it was busy, we were served well in time and had excellent food, I am a bit dubious when they French cuisine, but this was really French style.

Thank Vimvanvos
