The ViewLiverpool Review
Intimate French Bistro in the middle of the city.
Bistro Pier sits on Button Street, in the core of Liverpool’s Cavern Quarter next to Matthew Street - probably the most famous street in the city. You enter the restaurant up a narrow, wooden staircase and you feel like you have walked into a family run bistro in the heart of Paris. Tables are draped in the trademark red gingham sheets; the venue’s décor compliments the wonderful French theme with wooden floors, old timber beams and striking paintings.
The mood in Bistro Pierre can alter depending on what hour of day you visit; midday can be busy and make Bistro Pier a lively, vibrant place to enjoy a fabulous A La Carte lunch. In the evening the feeling turns tranquil, and the candle lit surroundings transform into a romantic place to dine. Due to its position in Liverpool’s business district, lunchtime hours mainly attract shoppers and the business crowd. The waiting staff are friendly and attentive, also the majority of the staff are French, which makes all the difference.
Monday night’s are popular with students as they can enjoy a 2 course meal from the A La Carte menu plus a bottle of house wine per person for just £12.95! There are plenty of offers at Bistro Pierre including an Early Bird Menu, this consists of a three course dinner for £10.95. You can enjoy this between 4:30pm-7.00pm Monday to Friday and 4:30pm-6:30pm on a weekend. The menu also changes monthly, giving you a reason to go back and try more.
The Soupe De Jour, homemade vegetable soup finished with creme fraiche, is a fine choice. It bursts with chunky vegetables and uses natural flavours instead of over seasoning. The crème fraiche was soft, creamy and made the soup taste that little extra special.
All the main courses are served with fresh vegetables, including cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and the out of this world red cabbage, which melts in the mouth and really is fantastic. The chargrilled sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce was marvelous, each piece of steak was juicy and tender yet still slightly chewy and the peppercorn sauce complimented it nicely.
There seems to be a range of drinks on offer at Bistro Pier; from bottled lager and various spirits to a huge choice of wines. The Pinot Grigio was beautifully sharp and complements the steak well.
The Last Word
Bistro Pierre provides outstanding cuisine at excellent value for money; it truly is a one-of-a kind venue in a superb location in Liverpool.
