Originally built by a Victorian wine merchant, our Leicester bistrot offers a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere and is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a leisurely lunch or dinner.

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.

Our bistrot has a rustic, relaxed feel that comes alive with the chatter and vibrancy of our customers enjoying themselves, exactly how a French bistrot should be!

We have something for everyone, from our two course Prix fixe lunch for £11.95 and our two course Pre théâtre menu for £14.95 to our evening À la carte menu. We also offer gluten-free dishes and a children's menu, which comes with our bespoke 14 page activity pack.
