We celebrated our wedding anniversary at La Petanque. The food was excellent. We had the three course option. Presentation was lovely. They did forget our main meal, so we waited for some time, but our dessert was free because of that. The food was great value compared to Melbourne city restaurants. The wine list is extensive and quite expensive. Service was very good with pleasant and friendly staff but not overbearing. Can highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. We will be going back.

We recently celebrated 2 birthdays at La Petanque and chose the 2 course option. Being cheerfully welcomed at the front door started the night on a happy note and this continued throughout the night with wonderful food and splendid service by all the waiters. The complementary mushroom soup was really tasty and a delightful surprise. We will definitely be returning. Keep it up La Petanque it is wonderful to have a restaurant of this calibre close to home.

We have visited La Pétanque several times for lunch - Sat is great as it isn't so busy and you can usually get a table without booking.
Amazing food.

The food may be good, but the management is not. My husband and I booked La Petanque for our wedding venue and paid a $3300 deposit. Ten months before our wedding we had a change of mind and wanted to get married elsewhere. According to our signed contract, the full deposit should have been refunded, however, the management refused to pay us back. A very awful experience - be warned future brides and grooms!
