    Small restaurant with friendly staff and good service!

    Our friends enjoyed the quirky restaurant, the food was very tastey, with the steaks being appreciated the most. Tarte au citron was lovely as ever!

    Fantastic lunch again. Well worth the hours drive it takes us to get there. We ate in the cellar restaurant this time and it had a lovely warm ambiance on a chilly day. The staff were fabulous as usual, then one of the ladies sat at the bar told us of a lovely walk to the top of the town. Well done see you again soon.

    The Sunday roast was lovely and the gravy was gorgeous. The lemon tart was lovely. Ambience very nice.

    Lovely french lunch on a snowy day - The snow was keeping customers away, so we had the retaurant to ourselves. Can't fault the food at the price.

    We only discovered this place recently, but this was our fourth visit, and we have taken other friends there. The food and service are not only excellent but consistent. We will definitely be back.

    Fantastic food and atmosphere, staff were wonderful and very accommodating will definitely return again

    Fantastic food and atmosphere, staff were wonderful and very accommodating will definately return again.

    Enjoyed lovely meal with my sister's in a very friendly relaxing atmosphere. Staff were very lovely and helpful. Booking through godine was quick and easy it was my first time using the site and will use again in future.

    We had a lovely family Sunday lunch. Food very good and nice friendly service.

    Very nice all round - food, service and surroundings.

    Everything was fabulous as it always is.

    Absolutely brilliant as normal

    Perfect portion sizing, quick service, tasty food, helpful staff and a comfortable setting. Perfect.

    An all round good experience!

    A real gem. So glad I found this restaurant. Will definitely recommend Le Mistral and return.

    What an excellent meal, lovely atmosphere, excellent service a really lovely evening out with family and friends, would highly recommend.

    Enjoyed our meal at this restaurant and found the food very tasty. Service could have been a bit more attentive as although we requested water for the table none arrived.

    We praise the venue, food and service but didn't appreciate the music - ditch it!

    This wasn't the first visit to Le Mistral (Wirksworth) and out definitely won't be our last ... We travelled a little way just for the mussels! Additionally knowing that the ambience and friendly professional service is guaranteed the journey time/distance is even less of an issue.

    Can't fault this lovely French Bistro. Would definitely recommend it!

    A lovely place to go, food and service is lovely. I first went to Le Mistral last year on my Birthday. Loved the food so much that I went back again for my 40th.

    Had the Sunday lunch at Le Mistral, very good portions especially the meat. Would suggest they warm the plates a bit more as the food went cold quickly.

    We visited Le Mistral on a Sunday and had an absolutely fab meal; whitebait, boeuf bourguignon and tarte tatin, which were all delicious and good value! Lovely quirky restaurant, gorgeous, romantic, downstairs restaurant and helpful staff ... if we lived closer, we'd be regulars!

    First time at Le Mistral - excellent food and good value. We will return


    Food, service and surroundings very good.

    Le Mistral (Wirksworth) is a lovely little bistro with super service and excellent food. We went there for my birthday and will definitely book again!

    We went for the set lunch menu which was tasty. Just felt a larger portion of sweet would of been more appropriate.

    Delicious French food and excellent wines. The set lunch menu is excellent value and I thoroughly recommend it. I have been several times and the standard is consistently good, especially the friendly service. The ambience is rustic in the upstairs section, which I prefer to the room downstairs.

    We had a lovely pre Valentine's day meal here, the staff were very attentive and the meal was delightful

    An excellent meal, catering for a large group with ease and skill. Excellent service from the waitresses who were both attentive and efficient. Also catered for dietary issue well. One criticism there was little choice for our vegetarian diner. It's very French, I know, but this isn't France and a large number of diners wish to eat a vegetarian meal. Great value otherwise.

    Fantastic food and friendly, excellent staff. I've been here before and will certainly come again. I fully recommend Le Mistral to anyone who likes quality food.

    A very enjoyable meal at Le Mistral in Wirksworth. A quaint place with a real French feel.

    Wonderful meal last night great food and service will come again soon.

    Very good, nice & relaxed.

    Food cooked to a good standard for the reasonable cost. Surroundings fair. Some problems with service at the end of the meal, but that was towards closing time.

    Had a lovely meal, nice evening overall, will definately go back.

    Very nice meal the only complaint is that when we arrived, they only confirmed a booking for Freddy not my full name Freddy Spegelaere.
    My wife had booked the special offer 2 mains & a bottle of house wine which had been confirmed on her mobile phone for £26. They told us this offer was now finished, but how could it be it was still advertised on the internet (thankfully she honoured it).

    Girls night out, fabulous food, cosy restaurant, very attentive staff! We were last to leave I think, had such a good time, didn't want the evening to end!

    Really nice meal and friendly staff.

    Outstanding food, outstanding value, generous portions - a delightful way to take Sunday lunch and we shall return! Chairs could be more comfortable, toilets are a little cramped - otherwise this is the benchmark by which other establishments will be judged.

    My wife and I sat in the downstairs area which seemed a little dark at first but when the candles were lit the place came alive. Such a great ambience, so relaxing and we chatted away whilst sampling some of the meats from a charcuterie board. Followed by beef bourginon the meal was great but the surroundings and pace of the experience both put a smile on our face. £50 including a generous tip for a full meal and a bottle of house wine was good value.
