Restaurant Review: Le Mistral, Nottingham

Bonjour mes amis! Here is my review of Le Mistral, a lovely little French restaurant in the heart of Nottingham, with two other branches in Derbyshire and Sherwood.

Since blogging, I have started to become more adventurous about where I go to eat, intrigued by quirky independent restaurants as opposed to nationwide chains such as Nando’s and Pizza Express.

Le Mistral fit the bill perfectly to have a family meal out with my brother. Although in the city centre, the restaurant is set back in a courtyard, making for a lovely quiet and intimate dining experience.

When we first arrived, I couldn’t help but produce a small smile. Le Mistral was like stepping into a restaurant in France, with lots of French themed decorations. Fantastic if you are a Francophile like me!

Price wise, it is amazing value for money. We chose to have the fixed price lunch menu, which was £11.95 for two courses or £13.95 for three courses, so it is well worth a visit!

Having such a sweet tooth, of course I decided to have a main and dessert, but my mum and dad decided to have a starter instead.

I couldn’t go to a French restaurant and not suss out les pommes frites! For this reason, I had to have le burger! It was definitely homemade, cooked to perfection, with the added flavour of peppers and onions which were packed inside. The bacon was also beautifully crispy, exactly how I like it, and the frites were gorgeous!

Yummy!

 

Dessert was a no brainer, the Tarte Tatin was a must!

Presentation gets a 10/10

I would thoroughly recommend Le Mistral for anyone wanting to capture an authentic French experience in the middle of England!
