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.”

25 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.
