I discovered La Petite Maison by accident after an impromptu invite and it has since become my favourite restaurant in London.  Located in a quiet mews just off Bond Street, this lively little spot is always busy and you seriously need to book days in advance if you want to get a table, infact it is one of only three restaurants in London where you cannot bribe yourself into getting a table at short notice, ten grand won't get you a table here.

The style of food is French tapas, plates arrive as when they are ready and they are designed to be shared.  Octopus platter, grilled prawns, lobster salad and the Carpaccio are just some of the starters on offer and the main courses are just as tempting.  Meat is beautifully cooked, tender and melts on the tongue.  Fish is as fresh as can be and rivals the best I've eaten in Portugal - where they have fish down to a fine art.  The desserts are definitely worth the sin, service is excellent and there is always a great atmosphere.

When the weather (and luck) is on your side opt for one of the tables on the terrace for a spot of people watching. Go you won't be disappointed, this place is off the charts excellent.
