slow service but excellent food and value

We have been here for lunch on a number of occasions and the two course lunch is always excellent value and choice in an authentic French cafe atmosphere. However, today 3rd march it was very busy which made things very slow.

3 of us went for Sunday lunch yesterday. It was very busy, and we weren't too sure about queuing, but decided to wait, as the friend with us who recommended we try it, did so because he walks past every day, and it is always busy, which was a pretty good reason to try it. We probably waited for about... More

This has to be one of the best experiences. Perfect service. We were not hassled at all and was allowed to eat our food in peace. The waitress knew exactly when to clear the table and when to bring the next course. We finished our food and was allowed to sip our wine and engage in conversation without being rushed... More

Le Bistrot Pierre is THE place for lunch in Nottingham. Brilliant french- style cooking and marvellous value for money. Advise diners to get to the restaurant for the 12.00 lunchtime opening in good time. it soon fills up!! Unfortunately lunchtime reservations are not accepted. Really good choice in the 2 or 3 course menus. Very helpful and competent staff.

Visited on a Friday night in a large group. The food was great as was the service. No complaints from us or anyone else in the group as far as I'm aware. Would highly recommend and will definitely be visiting again.
