As someone with an allergy (nuts) it can be difficult trusting that the kitchen are actually taking it into account. Not only was I told the kitchen staff had been preparing in a separate nut-free area prior to my arrival, I was given a menu which the chef had written exactly what dishes I could and couldn't eat. The waiter... More

Had dinner on Christmas Eve at Pierre's and the food and service was excellent - as always. They run a very busy restaurant and always manage to get the food and the service just right.

I returned for lunch with the same party of friends who dined here just before Christmas. The Service was very good as our last visit as was the food, one of my friends thought the shared vegetables were a bit mean. I had steak and chips ant it was good with the French Cut of Steak Bevette (think that how... More

Had my hen do meal here back in July 2016. As you can imagine with a large group we we're a bit all over the place but the staff we're so patient and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit!

Four of us went today 18th January and the first thing we saw was tables full of people enjoying themselves. We had booked so we're shown to our table upstairs. We were given menus and order taken for drinks. We all ordered main courses as we intended to have a dessert and no starters. The food came very quickly and... More

I have been a regular customer at Bistrot Pierre for over 20 years and currently it is probably the best it has ever been. Fantastic service, efficient and polite and a good range of starters and mains to choose from. And great value for money. Keep up the good work!

It was good to see this restaurant so busy on a Tuesday night! My starter of butternut squash soup was nice but was a little too thin for my taste. My main of Seabass on a bed of spiralised courgettes was nicely cooked. The service was good and there is always a nice atmosphere here.

This busy restaurant is located on Friargate, arguably the centre of Derby's nightlife. It is located over 2 floors in an old renovated building, with a characterful French inspired interior. The a la carte menu offers a good range of choices of appetisers, starters, mains and desserts, some of which change on a seasonal basis. The range of wines is... More
