Really bad weather due to hurricane Doris needed to spend a couple of hours over lunch, warm and dry. Bistrot Pierre had plenty of customers and had room for us. Staff very attentive and menus had just what we wanted. Decided on 2-course menu, ordered chicken/truffle for my Wife and I had steak frites, both truly excellent meals. For desserts... More

I took my Dad to this restaurant for a Christmas treat and we were both very impressed. The quality of the food was very good, the service was friendly, and the atmosphere upstairs was ideal.

Can get a bit crowded and difficult to move round. On our last visit the main course seemed to take along time to appear. We seemed to be forgotten about when it came to getting the bill. Staff very good and the food as well.

Birthday Lunch - food and wine good but the restaurant was very busy and very cramped. Its not comfortable having waiting staff pushing past chairs and leaning over to reach other tables due to lack of space. Need to think about layout and even take a few tables.

After having to wait for our drinks order to be taken we had to wait even longer for them to arrive. Other tables who sat down after us had their orders taken before ours. When the food did arrive the plates were hotter than the food. After sending our meals back once, they werent alot better the second time, However... More

Service, food and ambience was perfect as always. Very busy but it made no difference to the service received. Delicious food and wine. Well deserved 5/5

My partner and I had lunch on Valentine's Day. The restaurant was packed which is always a good sign. We ordered some bottled still water which arrived quickly. It was plonked down on the table and the waiter walked off. Why didn't he pour the water? If I went to a pub I would expect to pour my own water... More

Thank you for your recent review.

I will raise... More

My family and I visited Bistrot Pierre for my birthday. Although my food was tasty, I found the atmosphere to be loud and chaotic. At one point we were being asked different things by 2 staff members at once which was very difficult to follow. Some of our group were not overly happy with the quality of their food and... More

The lunchtime menu is lovely. A few friends visit every couple of months and we are never disappointed. We keep going back and would highly recommend this restaurant.
