Located in the residential neighbourhood of Sherwood, north of Nottingham city centre, Le Mistral is a local French-style bistro offering delightful Gallic charm, a range of menus and blackboard specials. Full of character, with quintessentially French decor and relaxed atmosphere, delectable cuisine and fine wines, Le Mistral attracts a regular crowd of diners to its location on Mansfield Road for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. To guarantee a table, booking in advance is advised.
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.
Lovely staff , Super food. Quite a large menu with extras on the blackboard. Vegan choices as well We will go again soon we hope.
Consistently good authentic French food and wine. Very good friendly service. We don't visit Derbyshire that often but when we do we enjoy a lovely meal at La Mistral
I went to Le Mistral in Wirksworth, Derbyshire yesterday for lunch with my husband and brother and sister-in-law. We all had a lovely, very delicious meal. I thought the venue was very nice too - it is the first time I have been here but would certainly return. I have been to Le Mistral in Nottingham a couple of times and thought this was excellent as well.
