We had been here before but they must keep the really bad staff and stale food for Sundays! One person had foul tasting salmon that tasted how I would imagine a dirty harbour tastes, one had pork which was drowned in gravy and over cooked to the point that we could tell it was meat but not what animal it...

I have need to work in Derby fairly frequently and there are some great restaurants, a lot of these can be fairly expensive, which can be counter-productive when staying multiple dates during a week. A colleague recommended 'Pierre Le Bistrot' on Friargate. It was the beginning of a week and although I hadn't booked, staff were happy and relaxed as... More

I invited a friend for his birthday to enjoy the Soiree Gastronomique. I thought it might be a nice experience and all in all it was a very pleasant evening. But I have to admit that as much as the food is quite good I get a bit bored with it. The menu hasn't changed for years and even on... More

Every alternate Tuesday they do a Gastro night, where you pay £22.95 for a six course meal (the coffee with a chocolate is classed as a course) is delicious.

I've been here a few times over the last few years but have never reviewed it so after going very recently, thought to put this right. We go here for family occasions as it is easy to park just around the corner & the food is always decent. Since the last time however, there is now a 11 month old... More

I went here with my wife for the 4th month running on an early bird deal. I just can't explain how much quality you get for the money. We had starters: risotto & calamari. Mains: rump steak & beef bourguignon... All of this and a bottle of wine. Just £42. Boom! Enough said. The food is always classy and top... More

Our meal was basically ruined by the waitress getting my order wrong. She brought me a beef burger which wouldn't be a problem for most but I'd ordered the new veggie burger as I've been a vegetarian for the last 20 years! This was made worse due to the fact I nearly bit into it! We got an apology and... More

As always the meal was well cooked and tasty. It's a while since we have eaten there in the evening and we were really surprised that the accompanying portions of vegetables were rather meagre. The small serving containers were more appropriate for a single serving, not for two persons. The waitress asked if we wanted to order extra sides but... More

Good afternoon, Thank you for your review, I am so sorry you did not receive enough vegetables, we always offer a generous portion of the vegetables and potatoes and I can only think that you received a single portion as to a two portion. I am so sorry about this and I hope you can except my apologies. We look... More
