The food is tasty and service is very good. The does take a while, but that is because it is made fresh. Would recommend to anyone.

Went here for works Xmas lunch - all 3 courses were tasty. Service was excellent, especially considering how busy it was.

Group of 16 pre- booked and arrived as the doors opened at 17.30. Very slow service. Many meals cool by the time they arrived and had obviously been sat out for a while. My burger was ok (bun over toasted) but many had to forgoe dessert because we didn't have time to eat pre-theatre. The attitude of the manager present... More

Mid week lunch for 2, Le Bistrot Pierre is a delightful experience it is not all about the food, which is excellent, it is the pleasant staff ,good service and nice surrounds, the prices are acceptable and portions adequate, typically French .Cannot recommend any particular dish, we have not been disappointed yet

The place obviously has a busy buzz and is an enjoyable experience. Food was very much basic French rural cuisine, not fine dining or requiring any real level of culinary skills to execute other than keeping up with the number of diners. Served in anywhere with less ambiance and the food would disappoint as more important. Service by Gerda was... More

This has become our regular stop if we want an early evening meal in Leicester. The 'pre-theatre' (order before 18:30) menu is good value, so it is a good choice either after shopping or before an evening out. Food is good - as it says on the tin it is a bistro rather than a gourmet restaurant, but everything was... More

We had pre- ordered food, as we were off to the theatre, table booked for 5:30pm - but experienced a very poor slow service, ( started to serve main courses at 6:50pm) had to chase for starters that didn't arrive, a main course that didn't arrive, vegetables and potatoes arrived on the table long after...

If you want superb food, well presented and served, look no further. Lunch is terrific value, as is their earlybird menu, the evening menu may cost more, but it is still excellent value for money. My only problem with the menu is, deciding what to have, for very unusually, everything is superb!!!

I say that because this is "good" but wouldn't say "very good" The food is quite nice but there are some errors. My starter was very tasty, main course would have been scored higher if I hadn't had to send the fish back because it wasn't very warm, though they did rectify this and it was very nice when it...

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.
