“Superb! An all round perfect experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Dining out for a birthday celebration, Pierre's did not disappoint! Atmosphere is pleasant, a full restaurant but not noisy. Very comfortable seating, with adequate space between tables.

We had pumpkin soup and traditional french onion soup to start - both were hot and delicious.

For mains we enjoyed the fish pot pie, which was full of perfectly cooked chunks of seafood, and the crispy pork belly which was the best I'd ever eaten. A side of steamed veg finished us off.

No room for dessert on this occasion. We've decided to come back another day and just treat ourselves to great coffee and dessert... Or two!

Staff are excellent, nothing is a bother. Wine selection is very good, hard to choose just one.

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We visited this restaurant twice on successive nights. The night we could not fault anything. The food, service and ambience were excellent as a result of which we booked to return the following night. On the second night, meal was good overall but the cassoulet was ordinary and the french onion soup had a distinct lack of cheese on the top.

“Top spot for a French meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This was a warm and welcoming place with excellent food. They catered well for a youngster who enjoys a well produced meal with out being treated like a kid. The duck dish was excellent and the mussels with frites were really authentic. A must have was the musk panacotta with Persian fairy floss. Don't go to Launceston without visiting this little gem.

“Great for a special occasion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Went here on my birthday and celebrated with family and friends. Bought own cake which only cost a few dollars to plate up. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the variety was excellent. All meals were very well presented, the wine list was adequate to match all meals available and the service was helpful and well-timed. The atmosphere was great and previously it had been awhile since being here, I must say things have changed for the better and it is more contemporary in a warm setting. Would return in a heartbeat!

“proud to be Tasmanian”

I'm so proud to say that it's the best lamb that I've ever had. Make sure that you're there for lunch on Thursdays!
