“Awesome food, rude and bad service.”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

I came here for my birthday. We were seat right on top of another table as if we were joining that party die to lack of room in the restaurant. After the main course, when asking the head waitress ( owner of restaurant) if we could place our dessert menu, she rudely snapped at my mom and said can't you see I'm busy!!!

She totally ruined our evening with her stinking stuck up attitude. It's a shame how her service ruined the wonderful evening with great food!

Won't ever go back!

“Our favourtie place to eat in Devon”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

We have been visiting La Petite Maison for a number of years now and have never been disappointed with either the service or the food. The food is always piping hot, well presented and local produce is used.

I have a severe allergy to garlic and find that most restaurants do not cater for me - even expensive ones - but Doug looks me and I don't have to worry.

We love the intimacy of the actual restaurant and Doug and Liz are a delightful couple. We will continue to keep visiting and we look forward to the next time.
