Had to change venue at short notice and they were more than accommodating. I love French food and this did not dissapoint. The food and service was amazing. Lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced can't wait to visit again.

Nicely priced authentic french cuisine in the heart of Harrogate. We only had 2 courses as we were too full for a 3rd! A lovely, attentive waitress made it an all round great night out.

Often eaten here when visiting Harrogate for a late lunch. Nice menu with tasty food, that is well presented. Reasonably priced with great service from the waiting staff. Food is always quick, never had to wait long for a meal.

We have been many times to Bistro Pierre in Harrogate and they have never let us down. Today was no exception! We enjoyed starters of roasted garlic ( so simple but delicious ) and mushrooms on brioche followed by beef and smoked haddock with tarte au citron and honey cake with ginger ice cream to finish. All excellent. Service was... More

Just visited as a couple in quiet period for the numerous restaurants in Harrogate. Friendly greeting from manager and well served by waitress Marina. Had some appetisers of chorizo and garlic with bread. Really nice but almost a starter in itself. Followed by calamari for my partner and mushrooms on brioche with pancheta. The mushrooms in particular were so tasty... More

Good food - can be fairly salty at times. Service is ok but you will never have a terrible meal. The atmosphere of the restaurant and dimmed lighting makes for a more intimate meal. Very French.

We ate here last night for New Years Eve, and we were seated despite them being busy later on. The staff were warm and attentive and the service was great. Food was amazing, and really good value for money. The steak in particular was cooked to perfection and we would definitely eat here again.

Description
Bistrot Pierre's 'raison d'être' is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and tarte au citron with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, Bouillabaisse and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Sitting in the heart of the town centre, just a two minute walk from Harrogate Theatre and close to the bustling Montpellier shopping district. The décor is decidedly French in style, with the accent on elegant and relaxed. Our bistrot is located on the first floor with lift access and benefits from a stunning heated balcony, which is the perfect place for dining al fresco whatever the weather! Open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £10.95 and a two-course pre-theatre menu for £14.95 to the sumptuous a la carte menu, and for those with little time we now also offer a one-course lunch menu for just £9.50. Wander through our distinctive French wine list too, with over 20 French wines sold by the glass you will discover something exquisite to drink with your meal. For something a little special we also host a range of events at the bistrot. Join us on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month for our Soireé Gastronomique, a six-course set menu with hearty provincial cooking. This is outstanding value priced at £22.95 per person. In addition, we also offer a special Dine with Wine evening where each course comes with a glass of specially chosen wine. This takes place on the first and third Wednesday of every month, so join us for a delicious two or three course set dinner menu for £22.95/£27.95 per person. We want to make sure there is something for everyone on our menus, whatever your dietary requirements. That's why you'll find plenty of delicious gluten-free dishes as well as a child-friendly menu on offer to help make your experience in our restaurant as easy and enjoyable as possible. If you love what we do and are looking for the perfect present, give the gift of French dining and order our gift vouchers online. We also have a bistrot in Ilkley in West Yorkshire, which sits proudly within a stunning arch-shaped building that dates back to 1861. Next door you will also find our sister pub, The Crescent Inn, which boasts 8 real ales, 15 wines by the glass, honest home-cooked food and eleven affordable boutique bedrooms.
