Our Nottingham bistrot was the first to open its doors in 1994 and is located on Milton Street, right in the heart of the city centre.
Our ‘raison d’être’ is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and tarte au citron with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, Bouillabaisse and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrots are the place to go for any occasion.
Housed in a former bank, the building was built at the turn of the century and today we use the old bank's vaults as a dry store. They're certainly an unusual kitchen addition, but they make a great walk in pantry!
