Forgive me, maybe I missed the point. Its just dosnt work. A sudo French bistro with all the charm of McDonalds. The cold atmosphere and stern staff with mediocre food. Wine expensive and boring. If you want French Cuisine, then find a "genuine" French restaurant where you wouldn't mind paying a little extra. This is just a fast food outlet... More

Booked in for a Saturday night (18/2/17) meal before seeing a show at DeMontfort hall. All started off well, despite some reservations having read reviews prior to dining about poor service and cold food. Seated quickly, drinks ordered immediately, food ordered quickly also..... then we waited... and waited... and waited. I should mention both myself and my partner chose the... More

My Wife decided to stop for a spot of valentines lunch here - worth noting this is her 4th visit and my first. It was relatively busy and staff were friendly, options on the menu I felt were limited but food arrived hot and well presented. I'd give this place another go but after that I wouldn't know what to... More

Went here for my son's 30th birthday Saturday 11th April there was 8 of us and it was my 1st visit and was very disappointed with the whole night. The service was the worst I have seen anywhere I have eaten and after taking our order the waitress eventually started bringing main courses out and told one of our group... More

As always food and service we're spot on. Had the cauliflower soup to start not something I normally go for but glad I did 👍followed by the haddock with pomme purée which was out of this world couldn't manage a pudding 😃well worth the money 👍😄 Coming for my birthday soon

I have just been to my local Bistro Pierre, and, as usual, they did not disappoint, superb service, superb food, and what value for money. The new loyalty card is even better than the old one, as you get points per meal, not just for one sitting. Terrific all round!

My husband and I visited the Leicester restaurant today for lunch. It's 13 years since we met and our second date was at this restaurant. I'm very pleased to say that the food and service was just as good today as it was then. My husband had the haddock risotto to start and, having tasted it, I have to say... More

Absolutely love this restaurant. We have been a few times for valentines day or anniversaries. They often do great value set menus which always include my fav dishes :) I love the pate starter and the chorizo bites. With a bottle of prosecco a meal for two ends up being usually around £75 which is good value and the food... 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. 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.
