Great atmosphere and authentic French cuisine available. Starters were very generous, steak was brilliantly cooked as requested, chips were crunchy and fresh. Bistro Pierre had a nice free caraf of wine offer with the meal. The coffee and ice cream at the end were very nicely served and delicious, highly recommended.

We came here on a Wednesday night without a reservation and they had no problem accommodating us. The place is elegant yet simply decorated with French food and bric-a-brac adorning the walls. I had the salade de crab to start. The portion was tiny but I must say it was delicious. I would have never thought to pair crab with... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were very impressed. Firstly the on-line booking process was straight-forward and simple. An acknowledgement was sent to my phone immediately. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff and shown to a nice corner table. The set menu was full of choice... More

A birthday lunch to remember. After much deliberation we booked a table at this eatery after a visit probably 12 months ago. Service was incredibly prompt and the food was incredible. I also had a voucher for a free carafe of house wine which, incidentally, was one of the best house whites I have ever had, anywhere. It was a... More

I had lunch on a Sunday and I can tell that the service was outstanding. My server spoke French giving the place a little more authenticity. Their formula for lunch is very good and give you the opportunity to try different dish. My dishes were very good, I enjoyed the boeuf braise, one of the house recommendation. And what can... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. This is a most worrying review and is not at all like our normal standards of service.

We have visited the Leicester restaurant on several occasions. The food is always beautifully cooked and the quality is fantastic. Service is professional and speedy. We have also visited the restaurants in Derby, Cardiff, Ilkley and Leamington where it is more of the same. Perfect!

Me and my wife ate here on Friday 20th June and I can only say the food was amazing. We were greeted, sat down and served very promptly and the staff were courteous and polite. I had the boeuf bourguignon which was delicious and I would definitely recommend this!

This is the first time for me to eat things in French restaurant. I ordered squid rings as start and a pork meal. And my friend ordered classic French stew beef and cream brûlée. The start and dessert are good. For main, I prefer my ordered one.
