I had the chicken breast with Camembert and had plenty of green beans and 6 potato halves which was more than enough for me. It was slightly bland and I think the cheese could have been more mature before it was used to get the true taste coming through.I was given 3 large scoops of pistachio icecream, which was delicious.3...

I paid £14 for a great sounding chicken breast stuffed with Camembert, was astonished at the miniscule portion that arrived, Smallest chicken breast ever, 5 green beans and 5 small potato halves....had to go home for something to eat, you can get away with this down the Kings Road, not in a cellar in Wirksworth, total rip off

We had a wonderful lunch here on the Wirksworth garden tour day last Saturday. The downstairs section of the restaurant is such a pleasant and unexpected surprise that we were almost taken aback. The prix fix two choice lunch was exactly what we needed and loved in this charming little gem of a place. Our waitress was a young lady... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at Le Mistral on a recent visit to Wirksworth. This restaurant has a lovely characterful basement/cellar dining area with discrete sections. The service was very good; the boeuf bourguignon was very tender and the sea bass (a special on the evening of the visit) was very enjoyable. With a gourmet society card... More

Le Mistral does exactly what is says on the sign above the door - it offers good food at a reasonable price served by friendly staff in a relaxing and charming atmosphere. We're fortunate to live reasonably close to Wirksworth so tend to visit Le Mistral quite often. Never been disappointed with a meal yet although as a non-meat eater,... More

Hubby was a bit dubious, being put off by it being a French restaurant but we went on their 2 meals and a bottle of wine for £26 evening. The food was delicious washed down but an equally delicious bottle of wine. Would certainly visit again.

We regularly eat at Le Mistral and have to say that the restaurant has a good French feel about it. Nothing posh but good choice with a beef bourguignon that is always good. Recent visit was again consistent with previous visits and four of us had a very good meal. Good that the restaurant takes Gourmet Society discount cards as... More

Having heard only positive things we decided to go as 3 families. Whilst it was very welcoming it was disappointing that the children's menu advertised on the website was not actually available. The children had half adult portions but by the time starters and pudding were added this ended up being quite an expensive meal for kids. The food and... More

Me and a few friends popped in for a meal on a Wednesday in June, without booking and it was very busy early doors with a great atmosphere the staff were really accommodating and certainly went the extra mile. Overall we were very happy with the whole experience and will most certainly returning in the near future.
