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.

“Another Birthday, return time to Pierre's Derby.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

A table for nine for lunch and everything was good, except a complaint of few peas in the vegetables, but on the mention to the waiter a bowl of peas were brought out. As always excellent friendly service. As ever the place was full and we have been coming here for over 10 years, may it continue for another 10!

“Fantastic,as always!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Have been going to Le Bistro Pierre (formerly Pierre Victoires) for many years now. The food has never been less than excellent in presentation, portion size and, most importantly, taste. It's is also very good value if you catch the early bird menu, but it can get very busy, so it would be best to book in advance.
The staff are always polite and helpful. The service is not always that fast, but I would prefer to wait for quality food.
Definitely the best restaurant in Derby!

“Best restaurant in town”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Had a pre-show meal, and wished we'd have stayed longer. The food was exceptional both in quality, taste and presentation. Service a bit slow, but can't fault the food. Lovely venue as well. Treat yourself, you won't regret it.

“Great food, 4 star coz its too loud inside”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I went there on 26th Jan. The restaurant is extremely busy and it kept turning large groups of customers with no reservation away, it is very very popular so a reservation is a must, even for lunch.
The dinning environment is great but it can get really loud from time to time, at one point I couldn't even hear what the person next to me was saying, lots of people were also celebrating their birthdays there that day so lots of cakes and birthday songs.

There weren't many staff consider the restaurant was packed, but they just about to keep the service efficient enough, it took a bit time to get the attention from the waiters but once you have their attention the service is great.

On a saturday night the kitchen is extremely busy, it took about 30 mins for the starter to arrive and almost 45-60 minutes for the main course to arrive, but the manager came to appologize and gave us a bottle of white wine free of charge which is very nice, the wine kept us happy and we didn't complaint much after that.

The main course is amazing, even the restaurant was packed the waiters remember who ordered which dish, which is a nice personal touch.

In general I think it's a good night out, great food, great restaurant, very affordable price. This is my 3rd visit and I will keep going back.

“Great value”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Came here with family for the early bird menu. excellent value for the quality of food , my rump steak was excellent and cooked exactly as i requested (which few places seem to manage for some reason)
Only very minor criticisms :
sevice was a little slow , but it was quite busy .. so ..
my starter of fromage grille was lovely but needed a bit of salad garnish or something to make it less one dimensional in texture ..
