Is Le Petit Sud the spot for fine dining and mind-blowing French food? No. Is it the spot for making your way through the wine list and eating excellent charcuterie on a romantic first date? Absolutely. In case the chandelier made of wine glasses doesn’t give it away, Le Petit Sud is a proper wine bar, but with none of that ‘are you sure you want to pick the rosé’ side-eye. Both the waiters and the wine list will happily point you towards the right bottle, with cheat sheet sections like ‘fresh and crisp’ or ‘weird and wonderful’. They’re opposite the Kensington entrance to Hyde Park, and just a five minute walk from the Royal Albert Hall, so if motorcades and Bach are your thing then Le Petit Sud is the perfect spot for a plate of cheese and a gateway glass of Chablis.
