Bistrot Pierre is one of the better mid-range chain restaurants. It’s good to support the indies but Bistrot Pierre has its place. It’s dependable with good service, good cooking and a welcome for all customers, old or young.
Bistrot Pierre is a French restaurant in case you hadn’t guessed from the name and its dark walls are filled with old-fashioned posters for aperitifs and the like. The effect is convivial and the place is often full of the buzz of conversation – just like a bistrot in France.
You’ll find typical French cooking with starters like toasted sourdough topped with mushroom and bacon fricassee or chicken liver parfait, main courses like beef bourguignon and bouillabaisse, and puddings like lemon tart.
Many diners come for the excellent prix fixe menu which makes a visit very good value and there is also an excellent children’s menu with child-sized portions of adult dishes rather than just chicken nuggets.
You can also hire out the upstairs for birthdays, engagement parties and that kind of thing.
Bistrot Pierre may not be the coolest joint in town, but for traditional French cooking at a reasonable price, it’s Bistrot-a-go-go.
