Bistrot Pierre - Torquay
Devon’s coastline boasts not just one but two Bistrot Pierre restaurants, both serving great-value French cuisine to regular locals and holiday-makers alike. The Bistrot Pierre brand is known for serving authentic food in true French bistrot style. Each venue features a dining space and lively bar yet has its own unique character. In Torquay, a stylish complex houses the wide restaurant space, from which diners can admire the view across the bay and dine al fresco on the terrace.
Masters of combining French bistro classics such as steak frites, boeuf Bourguignon and crème brûlée with regional favourites, the restaurants present a compelling culinary line-up. With plenty of vegetarian and vegan options alongside gluten-free dishes and a dedicated children’s menu, everyone is sure to be satisfied, whether you visit Bistrot Pierre for a relaxed lunch, cosy supper or a full three course meal. Make sure you don’t miss the popular prix-fixe lunch menu with two courses priced at £12.95 and three for £14.95.
Inspired by travels around France, the delicious evening menu offers a selection of tempting choice for all appetites. Starters come in the form of king prawns sautéed in Indian-spiced butter served with grilled artisan bread, and deep-fried Brie in a crisp rosemary crumb, with dressed leaves and plum chutney. For the main event, why not go for the succulent oven-roasted chicken with a choice of Provençale and forestiere sauces or Moroccan flavourings? Desserts are the pièce de résistance and include traditional crêpes and classic crème brûlée. As you’d expect from a French establishment, a scan of the distinctive wine list reveals a fantastic selection, with an offering to complement any dish.
In July 2018, Rooms by Bistrot Pierre opened in Plymouth, just across from the restaurant. Housed in a converted Grade I listed house steeped in history, the 14 boutique bedrooms, many with incredible views, have been carefully restored back to their former glory. Why not book a room after your meal and save the drive home?
