From husband and wife restaurateurs Lawrence and Emily Hartley, Le Petit Citron is a delightful French bistro serving Provençal-style cooking in the heart of leafy Brook Green in Hammersmith. Simple, authentic flavours from this much-loved French region are complemented by an impressive wine selection and a list of classic French cocktails.
The Le Petit Citron menu is inspired by life in Provence, and include entrées such as petit pot de girolles and woodland mushrooms, Coquilles Saint-Jacques with pomme purée and vermouth, and Rustic Mediterranean fish soup with gruyère and rouille. Mains include crowd pleasers like onglet steak frites with a pastis, garlic and herb butter; lemon and garlic poussin with French beans, persillade and pine nuts; and aubergine, red pepper, lentil and walnut ragout.
Weekends at Le Petit Citron are just as exciting. The brunch menu includes freshly baked pastries and preserves, as well as comforting dishes of Les Gauffres with maple syrup and cinnamon sugar. An informal space where guests can come for everything from quick midweek lunches to relaxed dinners and leisurely weekend brunch, Le Petit Citron is a true neighbourhood restaurant.
Le Petit Citron is a 10-minute walk from Hammersmith Station, a 10-minute walk from Shepherds Bush Station, and a 5-minute walk from Goldhawk Road Station.

Le Petit Citron is a great local restaurant serving well cooked brasserie dishes. Because of the new lockdown we had to bring my wife's birthday lunch forward (and just the two of us). Sadly we missed out on the family outing but we had a lovely meal - great food and wine. We had the a la carte celebration but their set menu is terrific value. The Covid precautions were excellent and we felt really safe.

Lovely lunch with my sister, great COVID precautions. Friendly service and delicious food and wine . The set menu is particularly good value. We had carrot and fennel salad and anchovy toast followed by scrumptious m fish stew and falafel, it was so lovely to be snuggled out of the rain we stayed to share cheese. The wine list is extensive and has a great selection of wines by the glass

I like Le Petit Citron. Always quality, well cooked and cared for food, delivered by super friendly staff. French in feel certainly - like you could be in a little bistro tucked away in Paris. The Steaks are excellent and the fish too. Staff always friendly and up for a chat; and they have been super careful and appropriate through the Covid 19 restrictions.
