An exceptional French Restaurant in East Molesey, near Hampton Court

In December of 1997 Jean-Philippe and Kim Gravier opened the doors to Le Petit Nantais Bistro in the heart of Hampton Court Village.

“Our idea was to bring traditional French cuisine to our customers in a relaxed and chilled environment, where dressing up or down will always be the norm and the food and wine is the main event.”

23 years later that idea continues, with their family now grown and their talented daughter Victoria working alongside Jean-Philippe creating the real tastes of French food.

Le Petit Nantais Menu

Our ethos at Le Petit Nantais has always been to only use the freshest produce,
locally sourced and as seasonal as possible.

Our Produce

Bread
Tim the Baker in Thames Ditton supplies us with his beautiful artisan bread daily

Fish
Buck is a third generation Cornish fisherman who supplies us direct from his fishing boat in Newquay straight to our door. Amazing freshly caught fish and shellfish from the beautiful Cornish coast

Meat
Smithfield still supplies us with some of the best meat produce you could ever find

Vegetables
Covent Garden is our “go to”, fresh, seasonal produce available all year round

Wine
Since 1997 we have used the same wine supplier who provides us with the best quality French Champagnes and Chateaux Wines

From France
All our dry goods and French cheeses are delivered twice a week directly from France
