More about Le Mistral - Derbyshire, Derby

Easily spotted along Mansfield Road by its bright red facade, you could easily mistake Le Mistral in Nottingham’s quiet neighbourhood of Sherwood for a quaint restaurant in rural France, and the dishes on offer here are as equally as rustic as the atmosphere. At lunchtime you’ll find classics of casual French dining on the menu such as omelette and boeuf bourguignon. Come evening time, begin your meal by sharing le camembert (camembert served with garlic, herbs and a white wine sauce served with stacks of crusty baguette and crudites), before moving on to another French favourite.

We recommend the canard boulangere (confit duck leg with boulangere potatoes, fresh vegetables and puy lentils topped with a balsamic and red wine reduction) or the moules frites (freshly steamed mussels with pommes frites and crusty bread, served with or without cream). For an elegant French experience in Nottingham, book a table at Le Mistral on Mansfield Road, close to the corner with Daybrook Street.

As always, excellent food, and really good staff. No rush no hassle. The vegetarian tasting menu is just fantastic! We love the whole laid back, calm experience with brilliant food and wine.

We visited Le Mistral, Wirksworth, last Tuesday 18th July. On Tuesday evenings Le Mistral offers a Belgian evening of moules frites/mussels and chips and a choice of Belgian beer at very reasonable prices. We've both chosen this option before and once again we weren't disappointed. We enjoyed a very good meal, reasonably priced that we would thoroughly recommend to any visitor to this restaurant. Friendly staff and a restaurant setting that could almost be in a French village, with food to match. Tony and Mel.

Great atmosphere, lovely staff. Managed to get a table downstairs where the music was perfect and decor really nice. Food was awesome and very very good pricing.

The menu was excellent. The food was delicious. We would highly recommend you pay a visit. You probably need to book, especially on a Friday night.

My wife and I went for an evening meal there was nothing wrong with the food at all and the staff were pleasant although a little unattentative we only saw them to bring the courses and take them away not during to see if we were okay or needed anything else. In our opinion the seafood chowder was overpriced £16.50 and contained not enough fish and a lot of potatoes which was not in the description because of this we ordered a portion of sauté potatoes which was not eaten and wasted this was removed from the bill at our request. In summary the dining experience was not up to our expectations

Les Misteral is a lovely place however the experience wasn't quite as good a it might have been. As we ate there on a Monday we didn't expect it to be packed but when we arrived we taken down to the basement seating where we were on our own even though there were tables upstairs where there were other guests. The reason given was because we booked. Although every table was available they put us on a table that was bigger than we needed and right next to the clearing station and fridge. I asked to move and this wasn't a problem. The food was very nicely cooked and tasty but for a French themed restaurant the portions were far to big and quite overwhelming. We would go again but probably over a weekend rather than a week day

We was staying in Wirksworth for the weekend and was recommended this restaurant by our host and I had also seen reviews separately. I cannot fault any aspect of our experience. The food was wonderful, the service faultless. We was so impressed that we cancelled our arrangement for the following night and asked if we could book in with them once again for the Saturday night. Even though they were fully booked they managed to squeeze us in for another great meal. We will definitely be back when in the area.

We went for a late lunch on Friday afternoon and had a great meal. It is a very small but intimate bistro and the staff were very friendly. The menu isn't too big, which can be overwhelming, and there was a perfect selection of light bites or hearty winter meals for us to choose from. The fixed price lunch menu was great value for money at £11.95 for 2 courses or £13.95 for 3 courses. Would definitely recommend and we will certainly be going back.

Le Mistral in Wirksworth is my first choice locally if I want to eat out whether its lunch or evening meal. I've never been disappointed and my last visit was no exception. Confit duck salad and tarte au citron both perfect, service friendly and efficient and we were seated upstairs to get the benefit of the sunshine during our lunch which was lovely
