It may well have been an off night at this Bistrot, but our experience was disappointing. The restaurant was busy, and very noisy with two large groups on either side of our table. The waitress got our main course orders wrong, and a wait ensued whilst the dishes were corrected. The price of drinks were expensive. The food was above... More

Visited on Thursday June 25th for pre Theatre meal set menu. Very good food and the service and attention from staff was excellent. You can tell a good restaurant by the volume of customers attending. We left at 8.30pm and it was as good as full even for a Thursday evening.

I'm not a 'townie' but found myself visiting The Bistrot Pierre to celebrate my little brothers 50th with his townie mates. The choice of restaurant was excellent for the 14 eclectic group of folk, 2 of them chefs in Derby. It was a Friday evening and it was rammed. We felt comfortable making a little noise and the atmosphere was... More

We regularly visit Le Bistro Pierre in Derby if we want to ensure we will have a lovely meal! Today again was of a high standard in both quality of food and good service. I was also extremely impressed that as I had found a gift voucher which I had received as a present some 3 years ago but had... More

Visited Saturday night at 8:45. The restaurant was rammed and I found the noise level intolerable, we were actually shouting to place our orders. They did move us away from a big party and after that it was better but by no means quiet. The teenagers loved the atmosphere though. Starters were a bit small for the price. Especially the... More

Thank you very much for your recent review. I am sorry you found the restaurant to be too noisy, with the low ceilings the noise from the larger booking does tend to 'stay'. I am sorry that you found this unbearable. I am pleased we could move you to a slightly better table. As part of the service you should... More
