Winner of ‘Best International Restaurant 2009’, Le Mistral is a stunning French restaurant housed within a period building in the centre of Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Situated just off the A6, Le Mistral is easily reachable and perfect for a special dinner or indulgent lunch.
From the moment you step inside the Parisian bistro-style venue you feel welcome and relaxed. The entire restaurant has a beautifully cosy, rustic feel about it that is ideal for families and couples alike. With two dining options to choose from guests are able to sit at a table on the light and airy ground floor that is perfect for a luxurious lunch, or take a few steps downstairs in to the intimate cellar dining room.
