Spent a nice evening in a packed dining room and enjoyed the £22 3-course set menu. Snails, venison/black pudding galette starters; French cut steak frite, duck breat/rosti mains and ice cream, poached pear puds. With a half bottle of Muscadet and a glass of house red came to £60. Busy and competent sort of place.

We arrived on time to the very busy Valentine's day lunch time sitting and were shown to our table within a few seconds. Service was efficient and courteous but not intrusive. The food was excellent, nicely presented but not ostentatiously so.

We had warm Brie and duck salad, followed by salmon fish cakes on a bed of creamed spinach, with sticky toffee pudding to finish, all washed down with a very nice Sancerre.

The whole place is quite small and they certainly make best use of the available space, but this is a bistro, not the finest dining establishment. The lunch was extremely good value, the wine list provided a reasonable selection at the expected sort of range of prices for this type of venue. All in all a very enjoyable lunch in a place with very pleasant atmosphere and excellent food and service.

I read a negative comment posted a short while ago, but as the writer started by confirming that they turned earlier than they have booked for I took the rest of their comments with the pinch of salt that they deserve. Why do people think that busy restaurants specify a time when they will be ready for you if this is then to be ignored? Book and arrive on time and I hope that you will enjoy this as much as we did.

I currently live in Oxford and it's easy to be overwhelmed by all the chain establishments here. I was therefore really excited to try out the Pierre Victoire with my boyfriend after hearing many great revues. We were not disappointed - the food is perhaps not the most exciting French cuisine I have had, but it's traditional and very tasty. I had the moules for starters (very good) and the entrecote for main, which was made perfectly. They also have good set price menus most days. The service was quick and friendly and the atmosphere really sets it apart. Would definitely go back for seconds!

I don't know what this restaurant is like in the evenings, but for lunch it is really good! They offer a good range of well-priced and tasty dishes and their "specials" menu is exceedingly "good value"! Wines are also well-priced and good. The decor and ambience of Pierre Victoire aims for that of a small and cosy French "neighbourhood" bistro. When we visited one lunchtime in early February, every table was full and there was that warm, comfortable "buzz" about the place. Service was excellent. Definitely a place to frequent when wanting a decent lunch in Oxford!!
