When deciding where to go for dinner with work to celebrate the end of our series, ‘Pierre Le Bistrot’ seemed like a good option. A relatively new restaurant serving, (as you might have guessed from the title) French cuisine. The restaurant is in The Brewery Quarter, minutes away from Cardiff/Caroline Street’s ‘Chippy Lane!” I’d heard good things about it from some of my colleagues and thought the menu looked pretty good so that’s where I decided to book.
The restaurant inside has lovely wooden tables and chairs and a low lighting creating a relaxing atmosphere. There was also plenty of various wines to choose from, we opted for the Rose – which was fruity and light.
While waiting for our starters we were given baskets of warm, fresh bread to nibble on as an ‘Amuse Gueule’ which was a nice little treat. For my starter I had’ Parfait au foie de volaille,’ Chicken liver parfait with sourdough toast and red onion confiture, which was delicious. My friends had the ‘Assiette Méditerranéenne’ to share which cost £10.50 between 2 and looked incredible and was definitely worth the money. My other colleague had “Salmon rillette of fresh and oak-smoked
Scottish salmon” for her starter which also looked and according to her tasted delicious.
For my main I had Fillet of sea bass baked with plum tomatoes,
shaved garlic, olive oil, flat leaf parsley with spicy chorizo which was really tasty. Our main courses were accompanied by potato dauphinoise and fresh broccoli, Chantenay carrots and red cabbage.
As a big group we had to pre-order which worked out really well as all our food came out at the same time and was piping hot and really tasty. I am looking forward to my next visit to the restaurant as I was very impressed with the service, food, wine and atmosphere. MERCI ‘Pierre Le Bistrot’ 🙂
