We ended up in this tiny restaurant with a typical French "bistrot" decoration after having looked for opened restaurants on a Sunday. We were delighted by the quality of the service and the meal!

This place is awesome, lovely food and very helpful staff who kindly translated the menu for us. The menu is on a black board which suggests the menu is fresh and changes regularly. Worth a evening eating in Le Petit Bistro definitely.

This is a charming little restaurant with an interesting menu, a mix of Portuguese, French and Middle Eastern cuisine. The French owner is quite delightful and very attentive, spending time with each customer to explain the menu. A relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

Lisbon foodies and bohemians feel a real affection for Le Petit Bistro, a French restaurant and wine bar in Bica/Bairro Alto, founded by former music producer Pascal Chesnot. As cute as the little dog of its logo, Le Petit Bistro is a loveable retro space with doors that open onto the narrow cobbled street. Lounge on red leather sofas nursing a hot coffee or, if you’re here before a night out, a great cocktail. What’s to eat? A daily-changing list of simple traditional French treats, a mixture of Mediterranean and vegetarian dishes, enhanced by a select list of Portuguese wines and French desserts. At weekends, join the homely gathering for a big, soulful Le Petit Bistro brunch.
