Food is always first class but the downsize of that is it's very popular and tables are quite close together so the noise levels are quite high. Not so fond of the wine list but that's just personal choice.. It's definitely one of my favourite...More

Our second night on a week's business trip, and a local recommended Pierre. Didn't realize the connection to the one in London, that I know well. Fantastic boef burgunon and entrecôte steak. Service even better than the food (if that's possible). Great house red wine....More

Visited here many many times for lunch, because the food is fantastic, and it's incredible value, I think I've tried almost everything on the lunchtime menu! Only restaurant we visit when in town for lunch.

Cracking food as you would expect, service seems improved and some new menu additions. Always good. One of the best restaurants in Derby since 94. Some achievement.

There is no car park for the actual restaurant. There is time limited parking outside I believe. There is also a small car park around the corner (Street name escapes me!). The biggest car park close by is Bold Lane which... 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 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.
