Never fails to be consistently good and for an amazing price. The menu has just changed so sampled the haddock dish, which was delicious. And crème Brule was scrumptious. Front of house is always accommodating and the waiters are attentive but not intrusive. Great place for leisurely lunch and catch up with friends.

8 of us visited for a friend's birthday meal. We selected the pre-theatre menu (£14.95 for 2 courses, ordered before 18:45) the food was fantastic. We ended up all ordered 3 courses, and I can't fault any of them. My only complaint would be that they'd ran out of the garlic sauce that is on the menu for the steak... More

I went here with a friend last December, we had to queue 20 minutes for a table but that was no problem as it was very busy with people out in groups as it was near Christmas. The meal was excellent and service was good, but was disappointed we didn't have time for a coffee before they closed, to get... More

My friend and I were in Nottingham for a Conference and found Bistrot Pierre whil scouting round for possible lunch venues. We went two days running - literally trying to beat several hundred other ladies also looking for places to eat. We found the service excellent considering how busy it was both days. Staff were friendly and helpful, the food... More

A group of 11 of us ate here on Good Friday for my friend's 30th. Service was a little slow and staff seemed a bit inexperienced but were polite nonetheless.

The reputation of this restaurant speaks for itself, when there is a queue waiting for it to open on weekdays! The menu is varied, catering for many tastes, including several dishes that are gluten free and those that can be made so. We fabulous fish dishes and a delicious fruit desert. The service was second to none.

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.
