Great Staff, Lovely Food

The staff make this place for me. Always smiling, always pleased to make your meal a nice one. We go here for special occasions. Really good food and if you time it right the value on their set menu is fantastic! We will be going back!

I've visited Bistro Pierre many times for an evening meal and never been disappointed. This time was for a leaving lunch for an ex work colleague. Personally I couldn't complain. As always the food was scrumptious and I was truly disappointed when the girls said they were going to pass on a sweet because they needed to get back to... More

There were 5 of us for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was packed and buzzing with activity. We sat in the upper level which was quieter and enjoyed a lovely evening. I really wanted to try to gambas appetizer, but unfortunately it had sold out earlier... I settled for one of the appetizer specials (crab salad with curry...... More

Visit maybe once a month, usually at lunch, excellent service, seated and drink orders taken, given enough time to choose, it was very busy but didn't feel rushed. The menu changes, so not chance of being bored, food excellent , now introduced a lighter plate, ideal for lunch. We visited on a Monday lunch, when restaurants close by were empty,... More

The visit was on a Saturday lunchtime with the family and the place was quite busy. The ambience and service was very good and the menu had a reasonable choice at a fair price. Everyone in the party enjoyed their choice of meal except my grandson who didn't like the french fries, but I did so I ate his. The... More

Having eaten here often and always rated the restaurant as excellent, it is with regret that I have to give a reduced rating following our last visit yesterday. By accident we had picked one of the restaurant's Soirëe Gastronomique evenings. Two of us picked that menu while the other two chose from the normal menu. The food provided on the... More

We visited yesterday for my wife's birthday lunch with the family, party of 7. Service was great, attentive and efficient throughout the visit. Nice (round) table near the front window. The food was, as always really good, I had the Burger Maison - large but delicious - the others had Roast Beef, Salmon and another Burger, everyone was very happy... More

We have dined here a number of times and enjoyed the food. However, we recently and were disappointed. It didn't match up to the quality we have so enjoyed on previous visits. When asked if we enjoyed the meal the waiter didn't appear to take us seriously. Would I dine here again, don't think so!

Le Bistrot Pierre is great either for everyday dining or for celebrations, whether at lunchtime or evening. It's very affordable, has an excellent choice for omnivores, and are very flexible for vegetarians like me. The food is high quality, beautifully served and delicious. For those on their emailing list there are regular offers - we had a complementary carafe of... More

We are regulars at Bistrot Pierre both the Derby one and Nottingham one. We enjoyed a free bottle of Rose wine as part of their summer offer and we went off the a la carte Menu whilst our friends from the U.S. Went with the Wednesday night match with wine. All of us had excellent meals and I enjoyed my... More
