Had my hen do meal here back in July 2016. As you can imagine with a large group we we're a bit all over the place but the staff we're so patient and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit!

Four of us went today 18th January and the first thing we saw was tables full of people enjoying themselves. We had booked so we're shown to our table upstairs. We were given menus and order taken for drinks. We all ordered main courses as we intended to have a dessert and no starters. The food came very quickly and... More

I have been a regular customer at Bistrot Pierre for over 20 years and currently it is probably the best it has ever been. Fantastic service, efficient and polite and a good range of starters and mains to choose from. And great value for money. Keep up the good work!

It was good to see this restaurant so busy on a Tuesday night! My starter of butternut squash soup was nice but was a little too thin for my taste. My main of Seabass on a bed of spiralised courgettes was nicely cooked. The service was good and there is always a nice atmosphere here.

This busy restaurant is located on Friargate, arguably the centre of Derby's nightlife. It is located over 2 floors in an old renovated building, with a characterful French inspired interior. The a la carte menu offers a good range of choices of appetisers, starters, mains and desserts, some of which change on a seasonal basis. The range of wines is... More

Visited with a group of nearly 20 on this occasion, and had excellent meals, and superb friendly service throughout the evening. The restaurant was very busy - full or nearly full on a Monday night, which gives an indication of its popularity. We arrived at 7pm, and were there to eat and socialise. I think it was around 10 when... More

Had a brilliant experience at this lovely restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Online Booking was extremely easy, staff was friendly without being overbearing and the food was exemplary. The food was excellent value for money, did not have to wait a long time in between courses and the ambiance was just great. Would definitely return 😊
