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.

It was good to be back. The food is still good and has an authentic French taste and presentation. The service excellent and friendly . I was really impressed by the measure put in place for the pandemic. The lay out of the tables makes the place look less like a bistro. But the welcome ,food and wine more than made up for that.

Cute family-run French Bistro. The food was delicious. The courgette salad was light and fresh and the scallops for mains were cooked very well. Friendly and attentive service. Covid safety wise - restaurant and toilets were spotless with lots of hand sanitiser points in the restaurant. A local gem.
