My friend purchased a 3k per head 3 course meal deal (excluding drinks) at Petit Paris, and suggested we go for dinner. Of course I agreed! I’m open to trying new places…andddd, I always keep my wonderful readers in mind. 🙂
It wasn’t difficult locating Fola Osibo street (thanks to google maps), but finding Petit Paris was a little confusing as we didn’t see any signage at first.
PARKING: There’s parking for about six cars within the compound, and there is also street parking.
AMBIANCE/DÉCOR: Interior is beautiful with music from the television playing in the background. There’s a bar section outside and then the restaurant area which is quite cozy and has both outdoor and indoor sitting. I think it’s a great ambiance for a romantic dinner, dine alone or even just drinks at the bar. I wouldn’t recommend Petit Paris for a family outing.
We opted for indoor sitting at first, but changed our mind and went outside. Big Mistake! There was a fly that kept tormenting me the whole time we sat outside. 🙁
FOOD: About eight minutes after we were seated, we got our appetizers (which range from 1,500 Naira – 4,100 Naira). I had the All Season Salad which was really amazing, while my friend got Crepes Farcis Au Poulet (savory pancakes stuffed with creamy chicken and vegetables). I had a bite of his crepes and they were lovely!
Five minutes after our appetizers, the entrees arrived. I was pretty impressed as we didn’t have to wait donkey years. Entrees range from 2,500 -3,600 Naira. I had Battered Fish with Fries and Coleslaw, while my friend got Spaghetti Bolognese. I enjoyed my fries; well salted and well fried. I didn’t enjoy the battered fish; it was spice-less and I can’t stand eating food without spice. I tried my friend’s spaghetti and thought it was delicious, but he didn’t like it much.
Desserts arrived almost immediately after our entrees. That was very impressive. Desserts range from 2,000 – 3,500 Naira. We had the marble cake with chocolate syrup and it was AMAZE-BALLS.
DRINKS: I had a strawberry smoothie (repping #FitFam) while my friend had a Chapman. We also got a bottle of water (cost 300 naira). Cocktails cost between 1,000 – 2,500, which I think is pretty affordable.
SERVICE: We didn’t have to search for the waiter, on the contrary, he was waiting for us most of the time. Our waiter was very polite and shy, however, I caught him dancing shoki…lol. I could only see one waiter though, and I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen if a large crowd came in.
Anyway, our bill was 2,300 Naira and we paid via POS (no POS issues whatsoever).
RATING: Petit Paris is an amazing place. Lovely ambience, awesome food, but there was that annoying fly! I will rate Petit Patis an 8.5 over 10, and recommend the following:
1. They should get a larger signage so it’s easier to identify the location
2. They should get a functional bug zapper. I noticed there was one available, but I didn’t see it go on (and that fly almost ruined my entire experience).
