“With character and charm, a really lovely, atmospheric little family-run bistrot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

I would give this 4 and a half stars because I have absolutely no complaints and would say this is my favourite, reasonably priced restaurant in Oxford. The food is really very, very good, and inexpensive. The service was good and the staff are very friendly. The atmosphere in the restaurant is friendly, intimate and welcoming and it is one place I never tire of going back to. While it isn't the absolute best food or most ostentatious restaurant, it is somewhere where its charm won't fail to impress.

“Good food at a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Had another lovely meal here today- this time a Sunday lunch with my husband and my parents. The food was lovely as usual and at £15 for 3 courses you simply can't beat the value for money. Well done Pierre Victoire, deserves to be back in the top 5 Oxford restaurants again

“Absolutely Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

It was Sunday lunch time and we hadn't booked but they found us a table within a few minutes. The staff were efficient and friendly, even at this busy time our food came promptly. We ate from the fixed price menu with different choices. All the food was delicious and the house wine very good. I was very impressed with the atmosphere, food, service and price. This place is a Gem amoungst the bland chain restaurants.

“Reliable Pierre Victoire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went for fondue, but forgot they have a set menu for Sunday lunch. No matter, two decent starters, and two above average roasts - all for £12.90 a head.
Service a bit slow, but they were full.

“Well Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Vibrant and cosy atmosphere. Food was very good quality without being too pricey. Staff were friendly and the service was good despite the restaraunt being full to capacity. We didn't feel rushed and we were not left waiting too long.

The only complaint that we had was that the muscles served for starters had a large proportion of empty shells. When we mentioned it to the waiter he was quick to apologise and offered to give us some more. We also noticed that he fed the information to the manager, which illustrates the level of interest and care this restaraunt has for its service.
