La Petite Maison reviews

By Josh C.

fantastic little restaurant - the viewlondon reviewer nailed it.

Great location, off the beaten track but close enough to the shops.

Food was excellent - if the weather is good try and book a table outside and watch the world pass by. Highly recommended

I booked this restaurant for our second wedding anniversary. We got married in the South of France so I knew my husband would love it.

I booked way in advance (about 2 months!) and specifically said what the occasion was when I booked it. When the restaurant rang to confirm the booking the day before they said that they had a note that it was our anniversary and would ensure a nice table.

When we arrived we were given a totally average table sandwiched between two others. We had to summon the attention of the waiting staff every time we needed something or wanted to order (we were actually laughing about it by the end)

We arrived at 8pm on a Monday night and they were by no means rushed off their feet. We had to chase up two lots of drinks that we had ordered and almost felt as if we were being ignored on purpose.

The food was delicious and we can't fault that at all but just the service appalling for a restaurant in this league.

As the evening went on and it got more and busy and clearly many regulars arrived they were all greeted with hugely enthusiastic welcomes and a flurry of waiting staff activity but for us not a sausage!

By the end of the meal I was thinking well maybe they will acknowledge our special occasion by putting a sparkler in our puddings or a glass of fizz - but alas no.

In fact as we left we realised that you clearly need to be glitzy, glam, rich or famous to even get a look in and not just a couple wanting to celebrate the south of France and their special day.

With its off Bond Street location, a sister restaurant in celeb-central Nice and an uncompromising approach to Mediterranean cuisine, La Petite Maison is proving a hit with moneyed locals.

The Venue
Arjun Waney, of London’s Zuma and Roka restaurants, has taken over this instantly appealing corner site on Brooks Mews, a tourist-free haven of prime Mayfair real estate. Plenty of high windows ensure the largely white and cream room is bathed in natural light during the day whilst retaining a generous sense of space at night.

The Atmosphere
High ceilings and hard flooring are a double-edged sword acoustically, making the ambiance buzzy or rather noisy, depending on your stance. The open plan, glass-fronted kitchen in full view of the 80-odd diners adds an unexpected focal point with guests even encouraged to wander over for a closer look in between courses. Most of the well-dressed businessmen and their glamorous female companions seem too engrossed in conversation to take the offer up, however. Diners at tables lining the outer edges either have red banquettes facing outwards towards the main room, or nothing but frosted glass panels to look at during a meal, which can be rather dispiriting after a while.

The Food
Head Chef Raphael Duntoye has a fine grasp of the Nicoise cooking style expected of him after migrating across from the Japanese Zuma. What is less clear however is the menu concept and the nebulous phrase, food is served to help yourself, on every page. Is this one of London’s increasingly trendy sharing menus? The £25.00 and up main course prices would certainly suggest so. In reality, however, they are ample dishes for one at best, brought to table as soon as the kitchen finishes them and in a serving dish rather than on a plate.

Beyond this, there is some wonderfully fresh and flavoursome food to be enjoyed here. A simple starter combo of de-skinned broad beans and flaked pecorino worked well, while a main of turbot with artichokes in white wine reduction was moreishly creamy, suggesting no corners were cut in its preparation.

The Drink
A wide range of predominantly French wines is available, with a healthy number both by the glass and under £30.00 a bottle. Corporate account holders will no doubt approve of the premium selection that edges up towards the four figure mark too.

The Last Word
Not a cheap eat by any means, but La Petite Maison makes no bones about its target market and, crucially, delivers on both quality of ingredients and service, two factors that helped make its Nicoise predecessor such a long-running success.
