We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal at La Petite Fadette! We arrived with five children and five adults at about 2:15. The place is tiny, but the owner could not have been more welcoming. Despite nearing the end of lunch and running low on menu items, he got creative and he and his wife made delicious pizza-like bread... More

Superb food served by very friendly staff makes this a MUST place to visit. Not a huge number of tables so can be very busy but dont let that put you off. Great place to eat and relax.

Stopped here with our 6 & 3 year old and had tartines which were delicious. Staff went out of their way to make sure we could sit outside and still be out of the sun. Dessert was even more delicious, we had apple crumble and chocolate cake with espresso. If you want an amazing lunch don't hesitate to stop by,... More

I went with a friend from Nîmes who picked the restaurant and we were not disappointed at all. The location is lovely, the waitress friendly and the food amazing. The food comes from local markets and you can feel it is fresh and authentic. I recommend to choose the "café gourmand",there are many deserts with the coffee and it costs... More

We loved our dinner here!!! The man running it was so wonderful and very good at explaining everything on the menu. It was the best meal we had in France. The carrot soup was to die for. Everything else we ate was equally amazing and we would recommend this place to anyone.

My wife and I tried out the new evening formula served from Thursday to Saturday. Delicious French tapas served hot and cold with a nice selection of local wines (some organic!). The lovely owners who run this place really make you feel welcome. The decoration is warm and friendly and the music is soothing to the soul. A nice laid... More

We made a day trip to Nimes and we wandered off the main streets to happen upon La Petite Fadette. It ended up to be a wonderful time and meal at this charming place. It was a perfect summer day and we sat outside. The waitress was really friendly and patiently explained to us the menu of tapas - translating... More

The food was good but the service was slow! I am used to fence service but 2 1/2 hours wait for a dessert that never came is kind of ridiculous. The server was friendly and made an effort but she was the only one working. Hire another server. Seriously.
