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.
