This bistro-style restaurant offers relaxed French dining in a refreshingly informal atmosphere. Full of rustic charm, this popular establishment provides the perfect environment in which to while away a couple of hours with good food and drink, and is located just outside the city centre in the thriving Sherwood neighbourhood.
Le Mistral lends itself to any occasion; a lively celebration, an intimate dinner or a light lunch with friends can all be enjoyed here. For lunch, try classic French favourites with an original twist, such as the Croque Mistral – Swiss cheese on toast with olives and roast cherry tomatoes – or plump for something from the light bites lunch menu comprising fresh and tasty baguettes and salads. With two courses at just £11.95 and three for £13.95, you can’t go wrong.
The evening menu offers simple, fresh dishes supplemented by an ever-changing specials board and the chef’s signature dishes. Perhaps try the rich boeuf Bourguignon with a full-bodied glass of red wine. The accompanying wine list is a revelation, with over 44 bottles to choose from. There’s also a variety of special evenings; you can look forward to the likes of mussels night, which includes a Belgian beer with food, and the chance for two to dine for £29 with a carafe of wine to share. Don’t miss the steak and grill night every Thursday, with mouthwatering options starting at just £9.95.
