I went there on the 14th October with my partner for a pre-theatre meal and enjoyed it very much. The food was very good, the staff were friendly and attentive and there was a nice ambiance to the place. Recommended!

An excellent and good value dinner ,with a sound selection of wines, Efficient service but avoid the 'know all' French educated waiter.

Myself and my partner were spending the night in Leicester as we were there for the rugby match and as it happened our hotel was opposite Le Bistrot Pierre so I googled it on trip advisor and after reading the great reviews we decided we would book a table there for after the match had finished. Really pleased we did... More

Currently the best non Indian restaurant in Leicester according to Trip Advisor. This is probably true, which doesn't say much for the dining scene in Leicester. It`s a bistro so I can accept the small crammed in tables but what is not acceptable is the poor food. The ingredients are not great and there is absolutely no that is nil... More

Some good additions to the lunch menu - chicken salad has a great large and varied salad - just right with fries. Lovely baked cheese starter also. Staff friendly as always. Definitely worth a visit.

A lovely restaurant and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced set menu included the steak I wanted. The error with our starters was rapidly resolved amid apologies. Would definitely return.

Went here for a pre-theatre meal and the only quick thing was being seated! Service was slow (only one waiter doing everything) Bread and taking our order took forever. Food was quick but disappointing as the chips/veg were cold, my partners main was so over-spiced it was in-edible and my veg burger was a filed mushroom in a bun! We... More

This is a restaurant that is always consistent. The atmosphere is good and the food from the changing menu is excellent and to me good value. Sometimes the service can be a little slow but as a retired person I am in no hurry. I have often lunched at Le Bistrot Pierre with my wife and had some excellent meals... More

I visited the restaurant with a friend of mine, his son and my daughter and really enjoyed the experience. The kids meals were tasty (tomato pasta with cheese), the staff were friendly and we were really well looked after. The set menu (3 courses) for adults was excellent value and great quality. The end cost was £42 for two adults... More

The location is close to everything in the city centre without being in amongst the busy shopping area. The food was of high quality and the atmosphere friendly without being imposing. The only down side it would seem that when busy food is slow to come out, not that you want to rush your meal but a little quicker would... More
