Situated in one of the most pleasant areas of Derby on Iron Gate, opposite the Derby Cathedral, is The European Restaurant and Bistro. Situated on the second floor of one of the Cathedral Quarter’s most beautiful old buildings, this venue is ideally located for those who need to recharge after a day’s shopping or sightseeing, pre-theatre or simply for a romantic evening meal.
The restaurant offers guests a choice of two dining experiences; formal or informal. The additional of the casual bistro-style dining room allows diners to suit their dining to their mood. The bistro is fashioned with French and Italian living in mind; contemporary but with a twist as the vibrant red and monochrome colour scheme helps to create a lively atmosphere to enjoy with friends or family. The main restaurant is classic and chic with a muted colour palette, multi-coloured chairs, crisp white linen and a quirky stained glass window.
A delicious Continental menu is on offer featuring classics from across Europe. You can expect to find dishes such as spaghetti del bucaniere with mussels, white wine and diced tomatoes, duck breast with a rich wild berry jus, and specials such as pan-seared lamb loin with a port and rosemary sauce with sun-blushed tomatoes on the a la carte menu. The bistro menu offers similar dishes, with the same care and attention applied to every meal. With a good selection of pasta, meat and fish dishes as well as several superb vegetarian options thrown in for good measure, you are sure to find something to suit everyone’s tastes at The European.
This delightful restaurant in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter is perfect for wining and dining, any time of day. It is more than capable of catering for large parties, as well as providing an intimate and welcoming atmosphere for couples and smaller groups. If you’re looking for something special, The European restaurant in Derby ticks all the boxes.
