Super cute little restaurant and the food is delicious. I asked a question about one of the items on the menu and the waitress didn't have a clue, I had to ask her to go find out as she just shrugged her shoulders about it. We also asked for a doggy bag to take my friends pasta home as it was such a big portion and they said they had run out of take away boxes so they couldn't do it. I can understand this but they have a sister cafe two doors down and at the very least could have put it in some tinfoil or some other make shift receptical. Anyway, the food made up for the little errors in service and we had a lovely time.

Great evening here. Food was so so good and the service too
Only slight criticism was the lighting. It was rather dark and most people had to use the torch in their phones to read the menu
Would definitely go back

A lovely neighborhood restaurant with delicious food and very helpful and friendly staff. So helpful that they didn't mind us bring our dog along. A good if slightly pricey wine list and a really warm and fun ambiance. Certainly will be going again.

Lovely french style restaurant in little Venice. Service was kind, good and discreet.
Please correct the spelling of the road in the open table app.

I was not very impressed with the exoerience I received. To start with many of the items on the menu were not av ailable: including champagne for their signature cocktails. Service was very slow and we got very little attention from the waiter. He seemed to be very disinterested and although it is a small space more waiting staff was clearly required.

The food was outstanding..........our first time here and we needed a nice local which was not too large, and noisy. The steak, the speciality was mouthwatering, perfectly cooked and soft as butter! ditto the fish and veggies. Highy recommended and I'll be going back soon

We are locals and had never tried this restaurant but always thought it looked well worth visiting. Having now done so we were not disappointed! The food was simple but delicious, wine choice was great and the waiter could not have been more attentive (in the right way), helpful and he went out of his way to put us at ease. Amazing spot to have on our doorstep!

We have been here twice now and it has been well worthwhile on both occasions. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is excellent, the wine list appropriate, and the atmosphere is just what we wanted for a nice romantic celebration. Certainly plan to keep coming back whenever the opportunity allows. The signature dessert is to die for!

I like to support local businesses so was keen to try this neighborhood restaurant. It had been recommended by a friend. The overall experience was disappointing mainly due to the slow service. We later found out that the kitchen was understaffed. My main course order had to be changed because my original order was no longer available. The food once it arrived was good. The waiter was very polite and apologised several times for the slow service. I may return again to see if I was unlucky.

What a shame.This should be an absolute gem in the location it is situated.I was was staying nearby and this had the best reviews on OpenTable. The food was excellent and the restaurant was nice and buzzy. The main problem is the service which was appalling from start to finish.It appeared they were more concentrating on(maybe) there friends outside and forgetting about people inside.Took ages to get a drink then they lost my food order.I would like to think I went on a bad night because the food was excellent as I said. All in all very disappointed because it spoilt was should have been a lovely evening.

Bizarre experience ... lovely setting, scatty & borderline rude service, and very mixed food ... the truffle toast was divine, the poached egg was average, and the snails were vile (probably badly re-heated from frozen of average quality)... If you're into quirky modern French food, then "Cépages" in Notting Hill is heads & shoulders a cut above

Les Petits Gourmets is a Madia Vale must. It is small, cosy restaurant and you are never rushed despite the small number of tables and it’s enduring popularity.

The food is always great and the menus regularly change. My monkfish was s little chewy this time, but my wife’s beef was very good.

It is a nice restaurant with nice staff that always ensure a friendly and convivial atmosphere. Booking is recommended given the small number of covers and the patronage of loyal locals.

I have never written a review but really felt I had to as this restaurant could be great but unfortunately was a huge disappointment and waste of money.

- the service was extremely slow and amateur, we got moved as soon as we sat down because they got the table wrong, we then spent the majority of the dinner trying to get the attention of the staff who were very defensive and when asked what a dish contained they didn't know.

- We could have made similar food at home, it was way too greasy and very basic (minus the edible flower decorations to perhaps validate the price) - totally overpriced for what it is. £18 for a small piece of greasy salmon served with raw carrot and courgette, sprinkled with a few pomegranate seeds.. !

- Drinks - we asked for a cocktail (as they have a cocktail bar and a section on the very tacky menus for them) only to be told the barman wasn't in and they couldn't serve us cocktails. Not even a straight martini. We got wine instead, one glass of which was not a wine glass and had to be swapped half way through drinking.

The whole place is rather tacky and wildly overpriced - such a shame as the restaurant decor itself is lovely.
