Description: 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.

Le Petit Bistro is a great place to have diner. The menu is on the wall and they have something for every kind of eater, even though the selection is 'petit'. The owner is very kind and takes his time to explain every dish to you (because everything is in portuguese). It's obvious the owner had a passion for food. I would especially like to recommend the Chicken 'Kreol'. The prices are fair, most main dishes cost around 12 euro.

I was staying about 3 doors down from this spot earlier this month (May 2013). The owner was a really nice guy and the food was great. We did happy hour (6-8 pm), which was fantastic. There were great prices on drinks and we went with a bottle of red, a croque monsieur and the starter sauce/dip tray (chorizo, olive paste, hummus, bruschetta, duck confit). So good! Wish we would've come back but we left the following day.

Nice food, relaxed atmosphere, warm and welcoming service, this little restaurant with a french touch is an excellent place to relax and come down fom the busy and busting Lisbon wandering. Has free wifi access and a charming service. Try the Mojito to start the dinner, it is the best in town!

I have been there in the evening, for dinner. It is a small and nice place in the BAIRRO ALTO area.
The owner/waiter of the restaurant was very nice and pleasant.
We ate (2 person) a starter of 4 different sauce/patee (chorizo tapenade, hummus, bruschetta ecc), a cous cous w chicken and a Pato (duck) confitado. 0.5L of house white wine. Everything ok. The check was about 40euro (in2).

Trying to find a place to eat lunch on a saturday afternoon, my boyfriend and i were so lucky to walk in to this charming little french bistro. Cosy and relaxed place with great food at very resonable prices. We had bruschetta for a starter and some very tasty chicken wraps and a hearty duck and sausage stew with a lovely house red wine. Our waiter was extreamly attentive and translated the entire menu for us since we don't speak portugese. Highly recommendable for lunch or brunch in the weekend (they are open between 1 and 4 on saturday and sunday) or dinner.
