Petit Paris has a number of different dining rooms inside its King’s Walk restaurant, each of which is decorated and furnished differently to its neighbour, but all of which give off a definite, rustic, almost vintage sense of France. This Nottingham restaurant really does get things right in terms of providing the perfect, relaxing yet stimulating environment to ensure the right amount focus is placed on the food coming out of the kitchen. Petit Paris is casual yet certainly sophisticated enough to be an option for whatever the occasion might be, and it’s all of this that make it an extremely popular Hockley spot.

French food is sometimes overlooked in Nottingham and indeed all over the UK, but with menus as good as those at Petit Paris, frankly, we can’t understand why. Quality over quantity is the Petit Paris approach, so from the a la carte consider starting with soft goats cheese crostini with chicory and clementine, or chargrilled wood pigeon breast, served pink with a blood orange and pomegranate salad. For your main, we’d recommend the confit duck leg with a spring onion and potato croquette and plum sauce, as well as the slow-roasted pork ribeye with gratin dauphinoise, spring cabbage a blue cheese sauce. Lastly, there’s a variety of homemade desserts to round off what we’re sure will be a very enjoyable meal at Hockley’s Petit Paris.

Fantastic pre theatre menu. Reasonably priced and very tasty and well presented. Staff are very attentive but not intrusive. Great atmosphere. No wonder it’s so busy!
