Wales boasts not just one but three Bistrot Pierre restaurants, all of which serve fantastic great-value French cuisine to a loyal band of followers and newbies alike. Whether or not you’ve visited before, the attentive staff are on the ball, ensuring everyone feels welcome from the moment they step through the doors.
The Bistrot Pierre brand is known widely for authentic food and true French style. Cardiff’s city centre restaurant is warm and welcoming while the Friars Walk Shopping Centre venue in Newport is bright and breezy. Proof of the brand’s popularity and continued success, a new eatery has opened in Mumbles, boasting calming vistas over Swansea Bay.
Masters of combining French bistrot classics with regional favourites, the menus present a compelling culinary line-up. There is something for every palate and pocket, with various options to sink your teeth into. Seasons lead the varied menus, and the kitchen teams utilise fresh, quality produce.
The two-course prix-fixe lunch menu offers incredible value, priced at £11.95, and the pre-theatre menu costs just £14.95 for two courses. Little ones are kept entertained with an activity pack while they wait for their dish to arrive from the dedicated menu. Everyone is welcome here, as proved by the gluten-free menu, and plenty of vegetarian options are also on the cards. The à la carte menu is bound to go down a storm, featuring starters such as toasted brioche with fricassee of mushrooms with Alsace bacon, and lightly fried crispy squid with roasted garlic mayonnaise. The deliciousness continues in the main dishes: think beef Bourguignon, and pan-fried chicken breast with asparagus, fricassee of wild mushrooms, peas, truffle oil and tarragon. The vanilla crème brûlée won’t disappoint.
Bistrot Pierre is a foodie hotspot, whether you’re looking for a casual lunch with friends, a full-blown family feast or laid-back catch-up.
