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 breakfast, 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.

Have occasionally tried a few other restaurants but we always end up back at Bistro Pierre as there is just nowhere else in Derby to compare that compares for quality of food, great atmosphere,and excellent value for money. Often go for set lunch, but have also tried evenings, gourmet nights, and the 'works xmas do' - can't fault it, and family and friends who come with us always agree!

Picture this...celebrating a 21st birthday!....First of all we get put on a round table for 7 so you couldn't move then the drinks are bought over which get tipped over one of our guests! Then told only one rib eye out of the 4 ordered. All ordered medium -rare bar one ordered blue. They all came blue!! And the one rib-eye was cold, then had puddings which was the best part of the meal! We took our own birthday cake as a surprise which they put on the counter! When we were sat opposite it so the birthday boy new....not much of a surprise...on a whole a well spoilt birthday!!

I've not got any experience with French food but what I got was excellent, the service was good as well as really friendly. I expected French food to be expensive but it was great value for money.
Starter arrived quickly and the wait for the main was well worth it, hopefully a sign it was cooked to order.

My Fianceé and I visited for lunch on a Saturday (we hadn't booked and there was no need to). We both had the set lunch menu - 3 courses for £11.95. The food, service and atmosphere were all faultless. The value was good too.

This was our first ever visit to this chain, and we will be sure to check out our local Bistro Pierre in Nottingham soon.

Choose this place for your lunch - you won't be disappointed!

We had been to "Le Bistrot Pierre" before and liked it. So this time on Friday 28th of December we went again. I was wondering if it would be too packed, and there were many customers downstairs, but upstairs was a bit calmer. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The starter was delicious and the main course was also very nice.
We will certainly be back for one of those special evenings. They looked very promising.
