We got to Bistrot Pierre Leicester quite often and while we were there last week we booked a table for 4 people the following Monday. The manager was kind enough to show us the table that would be reserved for us. As we walked in on the Monday we saw another party of 4 being shown to 'our' table and... More

We had A table of 7 customers who ordered 5 aperol spritz. It was very clear that the spritz were weak in aperol. We queried this and asked if they could just top them up a little, however we were told that this is how it is made and they would charge us extra if we wanted them topped up.... More

Good choice of food, well cooked and presented. Very good value. Takes some beating. Have been several times and the loyalty card rewards with the occasional free meal.

So its been about 3 years since we have been here. We used to go a lot for special occasions. Well, never again. The food has gone right down hill, the steak was like an old boot, just chewy Grissel, the pâté was awful and they tried to overcharge us £15. My poor husbands appetiser was as bland as water...

Just enjoyed a lovely evening at Bistrot Pierre. I can highly recommend the ravioli starter which is to die for, the mains were equally delicious and the French bread is just perfect. What's more the staff are wonderful. Can't wait to go back.

Whenever I visit Bistrot Pierre I order the steak. I've previously ordered other menu items and they've been fine, but the steak is always excellent. Perfectly cooked and full of flavour. The roasted garlic starter is always amazing too. Although make sure your dining companion eats it too or their eyes will water whenever you speak for the rest of... 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.
