Always a pleasure to eat here! It never disappoints as far as tasty, good food, is concerned. Tables are a little too close, but generally a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. On our last visit I must say that our waitress was not as friendly as the ones in the past.

The highlight unfortunately was the level of service, one of the best I have experienced in Derby. The food was very average and in my opinion overpriced for the quality you get. This I would say is aimed more at the hen party or works party than a small friendly Italian, French or Spanish type of diner and lacks the... More

Our first visit to Le Bistrot in Derby for a special occasion but it didn't go quite to plan, I chose a lovely tart dish for starters and ordered the special beef burger, the food and service were brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed the lively atmosphere from a really busy establishment, however before we could finish our evening of celebration...

Food has always been good not cheap but quality rather than quantity, my main issue they do like to cram you in, very little room on and around tables, large parties are even worse they just try to cram more round the table leaving very little room for the food and drinks making the dining experience uncomfortable.

I've visited Le Bistro Pierre a fair few times lately, it's definitely one of my favourite places to dine in Derby. The food is always wonderful and the staff are happy to oblige with any request ("Keep the french stick coming!"). If you dine before 6.45pm they offer 2 courses for 14.95 - excellent value! I'm now a regular!

Pierres is a wonderful restaurant, food is always delicious and at a very reasonable price. The staff go out of their way to ensure everything is okay. I have coming to this restaurant for years and have never had a bad meal. I would recommend it anyone.
