Lunch at this restaurant is just perfect. The place its self is a pleasure to be in. The staff are courteous friendly knowledgable and attentive. The food is perfect and the wine list allows a decent choice. I like to start with a glass of champagne and a new bottled was opened just for me. We were given tasters of... More

My boyfriend and I came here for some dinner and our visit was outstanding from start to finish. The host, who I assume was the manager was friendly and polite and quickly showed us to our table. We were placed in a section that was very social which we loved. Our servers were jessica and Stivi who were pleasant and... More

We came for our annual Christmas dinner and the food and service was outstanding as ever. The food is all cooked fresh and makes such a pleasant change to the chain pub microwave meals that everywhere seems to serve nowadays. Well worth a visit.

We have eaten at this restaurant for many years and always found it very good but something has definitely changed and not for the better. Our last two visits have been very poor-both in terms of the standard of the food and the length of time it took to be served between courses. We visited on a relatively quiet day... More

Yet again another excellent meal served by wonderful staff. It was the first visit for my friend who was very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed his evening and would definitely be returning again, I know I will.

I have eaten here three times during the last 10 months and thought my visit yesterday would be as good as my previous visits. I was disappointed. Several items on the menu were not available. The waiter could have informed us which dishes were not available rather then let us choose one dish after another then say it was not... More

It was Christmas and it was very busy so it's understandable why they find it hard to answer the phone (or as my friend experience answering the phone asking them to wait and leaving the phone on the side for 15 minutes before my friend actually hung up) but they didn't get some of our emails with food orders which...

It was New Year's Eve and very crowded when we arrived after a concert. Even so based on previous good experiences we would have expected better than we got. We chose the three course set dinner (£36.95) with an aperitif and appetiser. The appetisers were good (olives and mini-chorizos roasted in honey). Unfortunately they arrived and we had finished them... More

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 tarte au citron with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, Bouillabaisse and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Our Nottingham bistrot was the first to open its doors in 1994 and is located on Milton Street, right in the heart of the city centre. Open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £10.95 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 £9.50. 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.
