Restaurant description

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.

    Lovely place. Wonderful atmosphere and staff. Menu had a good selection and a good choice for vegetarians and vegan guests. All three of us had a delicious meal. Wine selection was excellent and reasonably priced.

    Despite its location on a busy shopping precinct it proved to be a haven of tranquillity. Pleasant décor, attentive but not overbearing service and wide ranging menu. Please keep this to yourself - Do not tell anyone else about this place or I will never be able to get a table.

    It's our third experience of Le Petit Citron , now one of our very favourite London restaurants, and our top place when we have an overnight in London. Excellent food and really lovely people. We are a little demanding (owning Bristol's Café Matariki) and it is great to eat somewhere which matches our own values.

    Food excellent. Takes a little time to be delivered to the table, but that is probably because its freshly cooked. Our waitress was charming.

    We were looking for a French bistro which is exactly what we found! Very authentic atmosphere, attentive staff, cozy setting and great menu - Steak frites was perfect, fish soup delicious The red pepper dish was basically hummus, but saved by the grilled bread Will definitely return next time we are in London
