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 crème brulee with our own take on regional favourites like confit de canard and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £11.95 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 £9.95. 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.

Extraordinary!

Everything about this place is world-class (from someone who has travelled the world). The food, the view, the service, the atmosphere, the location - the only thing that is not representative of a world-class restaurant is the LOW prices! This mush be the best value restaurant in England.

This place has become one of my top two restaurants on the world - seriously.

...and don't worry if you have mobility issues (as do I) - they have a lift up to the deck level.

Thank you to all the staff who take such good care of me as I curl up on the glorious deck overlooking Torbay and happily work, eat, drink, read - and have the best time!

Returning again for a Birthday lunch for 6 - all different ages from 24 to 84! Everyone delighted with the price, the selection but above all the standard of food. Ruth was helpful, polite and efficient to all our needs throughout. A really fantastic Sunday lunch on offer too, I had the roast pork option, Absolutely great. Thoroughly enjoyable for all of us and a great experience overall. We'll be going back that's for sure.

Visited here with a few friends for a meal back in December. Wasn't massively impressed with the food. My expectations of this restaurant were a lot higher. I ordered a rare steak for mains and it was nearer medium well. The service was ok but probably wouldn't visit again!

We have been to Bistrot Pierre in Torquay four times now and have always had excellent service. The food is very good with a varied menu to suit all tastes and the lunchtime menu such good good value for money. I don't know of anywhere else where one can eat so well for the price here. We will definitely go back and try one of their special evening menus. We took our friends last time we went and they agreed how good it was
