A gem of a bistro in a attractive location

with outstanding staff. We had a excellent Sunday roast, I cant praise La Petite Petanque and its staff highly enough. Thankyou !!

Lunch with the inlaws at one of our favourite Southend lunch venues. The food is excellent with a new fresh menu, and the staff are so friendly you can't help but want to

re-visit time and again.
