I've lost count how many times I've been here. Service is always great: very polite and fast. Generous with the bread and butter, and they can actually cook a steak. Great value for money and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Couldn't recommend enough!

Our first visit to this restaurant and we chose to go based on superb TA reviews and the excellent 'pre theatre' evening menu at £14.95 for 2 courses. Glad we went? You bet!! The decor inside the restaurant is wonderful and the air conditioning perfect on an unusual balmy August evening. The waiter service during our evening was really fine... More

Excellent food and wine. Staff were all super, taking genuine interest in why we were visiting Leicester - 4 friends who met at college in L 50 years ago! The service was perfect and we all thoroughly enjoyed our choices.

For a birthday celebration we had the 2 course early evening meal deal which is excellent value and is always delicious. The price includes vegetables and bread which is great. The wine list does include some reasonable priced wines but be careful because the waiter did recommend one of the more expensive wines (this has happened to me here before... More

We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary with a three course set lunch at Le Bistrot Pierre in Leicester. The service was attentive and efficient, the food was appetising and well presented and the general ambience was very congenial. We even had a voucher for a free carafe of Rose.

This is our favourite restaurant in Leicester. We have a two course meal from the lunchtime menu. Always a good selection to choose from and there are always specials to compliment the menu. On our recent visn't we had a wonderful crab starter. The restaurant is always clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Good value at £10.95.I... More

We went to the restaurant 15th August and found that everything was not as good as usual. We had sardines to start with which were disappointing followed by boiled fish and Pork. I was a bit concerned about the pinkness of the pork but the waiter assured me that it was ok. Today I have had an upset tummy. I... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write this review on us. Our pork dish is sous vide for 9 hours before being pan fried to serve. The cooking processes used allows us to be certain that the pork is cooked, however the way it is cooked keeps all the juices and colour in the meat, giving that... More

My sister and I had a wonderful dinner here, the decor is authentic French Brassrie style, the food home cooked and tasty. The portions were generous and hearty, worth every penny. Starters had already set the tone, poached egg and Asparagus for her and seared scallops for me, not tiny plates by any means and completely flavoursome served within 10... More

Went here with my family on a Friday night in March after some Richard III celebrations. So it was very busy, good grub although the muscles were maybe a bit too rich! Great place to go, good bustley atmosphere, good service and nice toilets. A good family meal.
