We wanted a romantic restaurant and found THE one in Grenoble. The service was quite excellent with a perfect attention and speed. The menu is quite conventional french food but the dishes are really excellent. The ambiance is great even if the main room is quite small.

My mother and I ate here on our last night in Grenoble, and couldn't have been happier. It seemed like a good mix of locals and foreigners, and was reasonably priced for the quality of food. Would recommend to all friends/family visiting Grenoble!

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
