We say…

Le Mistral in Nottingham city centre is a French style café, wine bar and bistro that offers locals and visitors alike relaxed dining, all day long. In a prime location in Eldon Chambers, just down the road from Burton at the market square, next to Specsavers and where HMV used to be, Le Mistral is perfect for every occasion from a lunch time break from shopping, a pre-theatre bite to eat, an intimate table for two or a gathering of friends and family.

Following their success with the Sherwood and Wirksworth Mistrals, the Nottingham city centre branch shares the same cosmopolitan yet friendly atmosphere. Stepping into Le Mistral is like being transported across the Channel and right into an authentic Parisian bistro. The restaurant comes complete with exposed brickwork, fabrics with vintage patterns, French memorabilia adorning the walls and mismatched tables and chairs. The lighting is low and the effect is intimate, cosy and welcoming.

The motto at Le Mistral is ‘slow food in a fast world,’ which is reflected in their approach to their cuisine: good quality food prepared and cooked from fresh using only the very best ingredients, many of which are sourced directly from the Rungis Market in Paris. Diners can expect to find contemporary twists on French classics such as moules marinière and baked camembert. You will find the mains as equally mouth-watering with dishes such as beautiful beef bourguignon, salmon fillet with a pesto crust, and hearty sausage of the day and mash. There is a limited menu for vegetarians that, whilst small, is delicious. Alongside the menu you will find wine recommendations for each dish which allow you to expertly match you fine French wines perfectly to your meal, Bon Appetite!

Alongside the menu there is an extensive wine list, with many of the wines being sourced directly from French cellars, as well as authentic French lagers and a selection of decadent yet affordable champagnes.

Le Mistral in Nottingham city centre is ideal for turning any occasion in to a special one and you can rest assured that you will leave feeling relaxed, full and looking forwards to your next visit.

    We had lunch here in this pleasant hidden-away building going for the set price meal. It was ok but I prefer other places on the basis of the cooking which I thought was ordinary.

    Overall:

    We went for lunch and were very impressed with both the variety of dished and the portion size of the daytime menu. We all left feeling full and very satisfied. The only slight negative was that by the end of our meal the restaurant seemed to be down to one waiter. We were therefore waiting quite a while to be able to pay before rushing somewhat to get back to work.

    Lovely restaurant, small, personal, very nice interior, set out of the way in city centre. Was a little disappointed with the duck being dry, over cooked near the skin. Staff waiting to close made it a little obvious. Nice choice on menu. Will have something different next time.

    Overall:

    This meal was not up to the Le Mistral's usual standards, we felt rushed with the first 2 courses. The sword fish steak was raw & the chips on the other meal were just blanched & not crisp. We were seated upstairs, where there was only one other couple, so know atmosphere. We have been here many times so know what sort of standard to expect, this was sadly lacking.

    Overall:

    Food was fantastic. Had to send to meals back as they were cold but this was rectified straight away. Service was poor. I was asked to pay a deposit and pre-order food as the party was over 10. I have never been asked for this before and it was an inconvenience to me to have to contact everyone to arrange. Two in the party didn't pre-order and when I arrived, rather than be greeted and a drinks order taken the waitress was waiting for the remaining food order. When I asked her to take a drinks order she advised that she would process the food orders and then take drinks orders so for the second visit in a row we were seated and it took just over 30 minutes for everyone to recieve a drink. In hindsight, I can't see the point of the pre-ordering as we still waited almost 50 minutes for any food to arrive. All of my party had a complaint about the waitress. They felt that everything was an effort for her. What upset me most was the bill that she gave me. It said that service charge was NOT included but when my husband questioned a £38 item, she advised "I knew you would question that, it's a service charge." This was removed when asked and a tip left for the chef instead. My husband and I come in regulary and always go with a big party each year for my birthday but after the last two visits we've decided not to go again. It's a shame because I love the place and the food is wonderful.

Last night the food was amazing as usual however it was cold (sitting upstairs) and the service was slow to start. 20 mins before a drinks order was taken but once the drinks were in and the food ordered the service was fine. I know they were busy though.

    The atmosphere was good, food was very nice, home-cooked and delicious. The cheeseboard was a little too small for my liking and with no fruit but all-in-all, it was a nice meal. We went on the £26 wine and dine offer, so the wine that we got was the house red wine which is not fantastic but was good value for money. We will definitely go back.

The food was beautiful, the surroundings whilst not being the biggest establishment was quaint and intimate. The waiter was polite and very helpful and left just the right amount of time to not feel rushed but not oo long so that we felt neglected. All specials and offers were presented well. 11 out of 10 for me. I couldn't have had a better evening and can't wait to sample some more of their delicacies!!
