Our story

" A family affair "

Through the years, the rue Pontoise’s little establishment saw many shops come and go. But one traditional chef named Phillipe Tondeta was not ready to let that happen to the Petit Pontoise and decided to take over the restaurant with his simple yet bald dishes and his selection of refined French wines to preserve the restaurant’s history and warm feel.Nowadays, the Petit Pontoise is a family affair who brought two brothers back on the same path.

” Each and every day, with our team and straight from our heart, we work to perpetuate the restaurant’s legacy by providing happiness to our friends, passers-by and travellers in our little restaurant that tells a great story.
