My Husband and I are regular visitors to Oxford and have had good meals here on previous occasions. This time it was very disappointing. We were dining with a long-standing friend who lives in Oxford. I had Duck which was dreadfully over-cooked and dried up making the very small amount of meat on it very tough. My Husband and friend... More

The menu choice was very good and not too extensive making it easier to choose our meal. All of the food was fresh and locally sourced. The service was fantastic too, the waiters were most attentive and knowledgeable about the food. Despite the restaurant being full we were told that it was a quiet night as they have extra seating...

We were photographing a wedding in Oxford so stayed one night and wanted a nice meal. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor and be lovers of French food we booked a table at Pierre Victoria and what a good job we did otherwise we would not have got in. The booking was for 7pm and when we arrived we... More

On the edge of Jericho and a short stroll from the Eagle & Child pub is this winsomely-authentic French bistrot. Its Gallic charm is aided by the mostly French staff serving hearty French favourites like rillette de lapin, moules-frites and confit de canard. Excellent value, with 2 courses available for just £9.90 (roughly what you would pay in France) and... More

I used to love going here. When I was a student, it was the sort of place I'd go with friends for a special meal. The lunch menu was always very affordable. When I came here with a French friend after an absence of four or five years, I was really disappointed by what I encountered. Minuscule portions and unadventurous... More

This is a charming french bistro, tucked away from the centre of Oxford. Like all independents its not blessed with space, but it doesn't feel crowded. The menu is authentic and the waiters are mostly french, which adds to the feel. The food was outstanding, and everyone was pretty well priced. PS. You will need to make a reservation up... More

Pierre Victoire is a bistro of exceptional quality. Suitably plain decor, no pretentious faff. Limited list of menu items which are elegantly described. The food is wonderful- Well cooked, well presented and flavoursome. We started with scallops with a piquant sauce of chili & ginger and smoked haddock, wilted spinach with poached egg. Mains of venison casserole with collection of... More

We had a excellent meal at this little restaurant , very easy to find, staff very friendly and menu deliciously good. We visited for a special occasion and it was very special, we are going to go back later in the year and taking friends. You do need to book as we went on a Thursday night and it was... More
